Choosing an AMD CPU

Often the first specifications you see when looking at a computer is the processor. That is because the CPU is like the brain of your PC and can help you determine all of the other components needed to complete your build. Processors are available from two major brands, and while each functions similarly, they are not interchangeable. Motherboards will only work with specific processors, and compatibility is determined by the type of socket on the board.

A benefit of AMD processors is that they usually come with a CPU cooler that ensures part compatibility and saves on initial build costs. Water cooling and AIO options are still viable for AMD CPUs, but the included cooler is more than sufficient for most tasks. AMD processors are great CPUs for gaming. When building a gaming desktop, also save budget for components such as graphics cards or high end SSDs.

Top AMD Processors

AMD processors come in a wide variety of options to suit your budget and uses, whether you are looking for the best experience in PC gaming or simply need a reliable desktop processor to enhance your PC workspace. Always reference each model's benchmark list to determine which has the ideal features for you.

AMD is perhaps best known for its gaming processors, but AMD also offers powerful solutions for high performance computing and artificial intelligence (AI). For exceptional workstation and server performance, consider the AMD EPYC 7702 Series processors featuring up to 64 cores, up to 128 threads, and up to 3.35 GHz clock speed. The EPYC Series processors also come in 32 core and 24 core options.

Arguably our most popular option for gamers is the AMD Ryzen 5 line with offerings in 6 core. Designed for gamers and artists alike, Ryzen processors offer super fast performance with the help of cutting edge technology. Consider the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G processor, Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor, Ryzen 9 5950X processor, Ryzen 5 5600X processor, Ryzen Threadripper processor, and more. These high performance processors are purpose built for smoothly running demanding apps and games.

AMD Ryzen processors offer a core count of between 6 and 16 cores and between 12 and 32 threads, depending on the model you choose. Some Ryzen processors feature AMD Wraith Stealth thermal solutions to help effectively cool your system during demanding use.

The G Series processors, which feature integrated AMD Radeon graphics, are an excellent solution that provides the best in multimedia visuals while supporting small form factor designs and systems without a dedicated graphics card. Gamers will appreciate the G Series options thanks to their Zen 3 architecture and Radeon graphics which allow for smooth 1080P gameplay and feature an upscaling algorithm that takes a low resolution input and makes it high resolution.

AMD CPU Motherboard Combos

When building a gaming desktop or any type of computer, the best place to start is with the CPU. Matching a CPU to the correct motherboard socket can be frustrating and time consuming for those new to PC building. Luckily, AMD CPU Motherboard Combos are available that are a great way to alleviate the stress of component shopping. When you purchase an AMD CPU and motherboard combo, you ensure the compatibility of the two parts and save money that can be applied to other areas of your build.
