CPU - AMD

The CPU is the central processing unit, literally the central component in a computer. It's responsible for processing instructions and controlling the other components. Many include basic on-board graphics processors too so you can power a display without needing a separate graphics card. Intel and AMD rule the desktop processor market, and each has a wide range of models suited to different tasks and budgets. Low-end, dual-core chips can be had for £25 or even less, but are only well matched to basic tasks, while the high-end is home to multi-core, high frequency monsters that can tear through the world's most intensive software. Before buying, ensure you've got a compatible motherboard and a cooler that can take the heat.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper Socket TR4 Processors

AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs feature up to 16 cores with SMT technology and so can process up to 32 threads in parallel. This makes them ideally suited for heavily multithreaded applications such as video encoding and 3D rendering or running lots of applications at once. These multi-core CPUs support ultra-fast quad-channel DDR4 memory and with 64 PCI-E lanes can support multiple graphics cards and other devices such as RAID controllers, sound cards. These high-end CPUs use the special Socket TR4 and require a motherboard based on the AMD X399 chipset.
