Today’s CPUs (Central Processing Units), APUs (Accelerated Processing Units) or processors, as they are sometimes called, boost a variety features that present a daunting task when it comes to choosing the right one for your needs. Whether you are a gamer or more into productivity, your task should be centered around finding the CPU that best supports what UDO. (You D0). I think we covered all the acronyms so far.

In order to make the buying process as simple as possible, you can narrow down your selection process by deciding on AMD or Intel, price point, number of cores, and clock speed.

While there are many notable chip manufacturers out there, AMD and Intel are more often sitting at the top of the list. Here is a head-to-head comparison of their two shining stars… or chips.

These two processors are clearly not in the same field to be competing against each other. The point here is that each offers something that is important based on consumer needs.

The AMD A8-7670K “Kaveri” with Radeon R7 Graphics is an excellent performer in the graphics department. It features 10 cores with consist of 4 CPU cores and 6 GPU cores.

The Intel Xeon E5-2670 excels in the power arena.  It has 8 cores and features Hyper-Threading technology and Virtualization Technology (VT-x)
