What type of processor do you need?

So we know that we can’t have good RAM without a good processor. And when we buy a computer normally we overlook some specifications but without going deep. First, we would have to know what a processor is. 


A processor known as a central processing unit CPU, is the one that handles all of the basic instructions on a computer. Of course, nowadays there are different types of processors, 5 to be exact, and choosing one of those depends mostly on what type of work do you do on your computer.


Now, continuing from our last post on how much RAM do you really need, we also need to know what type of processor do we need according to the architecture software we use. 

Intel/AMD processor scoring a single thread CPUMark of 2000 or higher. Such as the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X, Intel Core i7-3770K or better.

1st Gen Intel® Core™ or compatible processor with SSE4.2 support (x64). Users recommend Threadripper 3990X 2.9GHz (4.3 Turbo) 64 Core.
