Best Desktop CPUs
Your next desktop PC is here. As you look through all the CPUs, keep in mind that at the time of this article’s release (September 2013), prices are subject to change. The Intel processors tend to stay pretty low now so they are affordable at the moment. When looking for a processor, if you don’t need it for gaming, rendering video, or doing 3D work (like CAD), then you should look for the cheapest model that your budget will allow.
AMD processors are great with multi-tasking but lack on single tasking once compared to Intel CPUs. So if you use mostly Microsoft Word and browse the web all day, then you don’t need an Intel CPU, look to the AMD-FX 8350. However, if you render video or do 3D work then I suggest that you get an Intel CPU. But no matter what your needs are, one of these CPUs will certainly please your wallet and give you good performance for its price point.
what ryzen cpus have integrated graphics
All of the latest Ryzen 3, 5 and 7’s have integrated graphics on the CPU chipset itself. As for the number of cores on these CPUs, they range from 4 to 8 with varying frequencies and prices according to their respective number of cores. Also note that a core is a physical part in a computer so two 4-core CPUs is still an 8-core computer.
The best CPUs for gaming that
you can get right now, are the Intel Core i5-4690k and the Intel Core i7-4790k. They will run most games pretty well without bottlenecking your graphics card, but if you want to be able to max out all of your games then go with one of these:
The best CPUs for productivity are
the Intel Core i7-5960x, Intel Core i7-5820k and the Intel Xeon E5-2687W. These CPUs are great at multi tasking and will save you some time when rendering video or doing 3D work. AMD processors tend to do well with Multi-tasking , especially on budget CPUs, but once again they lack on single tasking when compared to Intel CPUs. But if you are looking for budget CPUs then look no further than these:
The AMD FX 6300 is a great CPU that will perform well even when rendering video. So it’s perfect if you want an all-round computer that can do everything at least enough, without breaking the bank.
The best CPUs for budget-minded people
Are the AMD FX 6300, AMD FX 4300 and Intel Pentium G3250. The best CPU for multi-tasking in this list is the AMD FX 6300 because it has 6 cores which means that you can do multiple tasks without bottlenecking anything in your PC.
These are just a few of the CPUs that come to mind when looking for a budget CPU, so if you are on a budget don’t worry because they can all run any game pretty well with at least 30fps. If you have any questions or comments then feel free to leave them in the comment box below!
How to choose the right CPU for your needs
If you are a casual gamer then any of these CPUs will work just fine for you, but if you’re a hard-core gamer and want to be able to max out all your games at 1080p with 60+FPS without having to upgrade anything else, then go with one of the following:
The Intel Core i7-3970X is the best CPU for gaming and will give you great performance at 1080p with 60+FPS. But it may not be worth the price so if you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a CPU, then go with any of these: The Intel Core i5-4690k and the AMD FX 8350 are both great CPUs that will run most games very well and won’t bottleneck your GPU, but the Intel Core i5-4690k is better for gaming because it has 4 cores which means that you can play any game with at least 30fps.
