Intel VS. AMD?
For an exhausting, seemingly never-ending stretch of time, Intel was arguably the only worthwhile option for high performance processors, or more commonly referenced as 'CPU' (central processing unit) - until now.
AMD is making a defiant resurgence with their line-up of Ryzen CPUs, based on their seriously impressive Zen architecture and chipset technology, which is shaking up the processor industry considerably.
The storied rivalry between these two colossal companies dates back decades, but a revitalised AMD means fresh innovation and increased competition - a win-win for consumers.
Why should I go AMD?
The headline attraction of Ryzen CPUs are their densely packed core counts, easily exceeding 6, 8 and even more cores. They're an appreciated departure from bog-standard 4 core CPUs.
The top-tier Ryzen 9 CPUs have up to 16 cores, a mind-boggling figure once unheard of in consumer-grade CPUs. This is steadily approaching the territory of high-performance workstations and servers, providing unprecedented performance for power-uses, gamers and enthusiasts.
High core counts are perfectly suited for multi-tasking and multi-threaded workloads, such as running the latest big-budget blockbuster video games and seamlessly alt-tabbing between demanding applications.
The best of both worlds
Having record-breaking core counts is all well and good, but how does the raw performance of AMD CPUs stack up against the competition? Admittedly, AMD lagged a bit behind the competition in like-for-like scenarios when they first debuted Ryzen, but it was only just the beginning.
Slowly but surely, AMD eventually eclipsed Intel's lead with their latest generation Ryzen 5000 series. AMD processors provide both eye-watering speeds and ridiculously high core counts, effortlessly tackling any intensive task thrown at it.
How do I choose an AMD processor?
If you're at all familiar with the Intel Core line-up of processors, the AMD Ryzen processors are split-up very similarly. There's the Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 series. Essentially, each increase in series number indicates improved performance, core counts and feature sets.
For day-to-day tasks, the Ryzen 5 CPUs offer solid, all-round performance. They're even capable of some gaming! Check out our broad range of AMD motherboards, compatible with the latest generation Ryzen CPUs.
What is the best AMD processor for gaming?
For gaming, the current sweet-spot of price to performance is the Ryzen 7 CPU, but you'll want at least a Ryzen 5 CPU. These start at 6 core configurations, arguably the minimum requirement for modern game engines.
Once you've moved up to Ryzen 5 and above processors, you're also introduced to improved performance when multi-tasking, with support for simultaneous multi-threading (SMT). This divides one physical core into two virtual cores to efficiently distribute the workload - a 6 core, 12 thread processor, for instance.
Many applications, including an increasing amount of games, leverage SMT for improved performance. Funnily enough, next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X use AMD processors as well as AMD graphics cards, so they're practically certified for gaming.
What is the AMD Ryzen Threadripper?
If you're looking for maximum power - this is it. AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors are designed for professionals - editors, engineers, designers, artists and more. For anybody who regularly uses complex, power-hungry software and needs the bleeding-edge in performance, there's no other choice. Accelerate workflows and crush deadlines by harnessing the beastly power of an AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU.
