    Intel has finalised the first Arc graphics card series: a lost generation at launch?


The processor - very often also called CPU (central processing unit) - is the main computing or functional unit in a computer that provides the actual processing power. The CPU retrieves various instructions from the memory and thus executes the data processing as well as the control of the processing sequences. The graphics processor of a graphics card, for example, can relieve the main processor by processing information itself. The processor family (e.g. Intel Core i5 9th Gen or AMD Ryzen 3000), the processor socket (e.g. LGA 1151 or AM4), the processor clock frequency (specified in GHz), the number of processor cores as well as the support of hyper-threading are decisive for the choice of a processor.

In our online shop you will find all CPUs from Intel and AMD for every application area, whether beginner or high-end user. We also try to include the very latest processors in our range as quickly as possible.
