Best Processors – Ranking 2017

One of the three main components of a PC gamer, or rather of any PC, is without a doubt the CPU. In this article I have created the ranking of the best processors in the world in which I have separated Intel from AMD, and discriminated the core i3 and i5. The listing is not random or by popularity, but is based on benchmark processes. If you are interested in the laptops, you will also find in the final tab the corresponding TOP 10 of processors.

In this article you will find:

  • Complete ranking of PC gamer processors
  • Better Intel and AMD microprocessors, more explanations
  • CPU gamer analysis
  • Microprocessors AMD Vs. Intel

You may have doubts about the information in the table, so I will explain. The best processors of this 2017 are without a doubt the Intel Xeon on the left. The problem is that these CPUs are not used in desktop computers, not even in PC gamer, since they were designed and manufactured more specifically to work with servers. That is why the user has a PC, have to think of the right micros, the best of the best you can get for your computer in this 2017, or point to an AMD CPU of the extreme range, As shown in the next table.

10 AMD FX-8320 Eight-Core 20 AMD Opteron 6272

The core i7 of the first table and the AMD presented in the previous one, are the best of both companies. It should be noted that Intel dominates the market of the best processors of extreme level. By this I mean that between the middle of the number 1 CPU and the number 2 of AMD, there are sure to be five or more of the Intel brand. Likewise, the number of micros that Intel launches to the market does not mean that it dominates the same, but that AMD has much less variety in the extreme ranges.
Next I present a top 10 of the high ranges of the cores i3 and i5, totally apt to put together a PC gamer 2017.

In the high end notebook, AMD is largely outperformed by Intel. Its best processor in this range is the AMD Embedded R-Series RX-421BD, followed by the AMD PRO A12-8800B.


Processor Gamer Review

Always keep in mind that computing is advancing at a rapid pace and that the CPU that is today the best, may not be tomorrow because another one comes out. That is why even for the most demanding gamers, it is very crazy to try to follow that endless race. The idea of ​​this list is to know which are the best processors of both Intel and AMD 2017 for those who want to build an extreme PC gamer, or a high-end with the core i3 and i5 presented. On the other hand, it must be taken into account that the speed difference between the first CPU of the ranking and the number 10, will not be directly visible when playing, not even in ultra graphics. That is why it is a mistake to be obsessed with having the best of the best.

With this I also want to clarify another point for gamers. Those who want to build a high-level PC gamer, do not need to go first in the ranking of processors, in fact, they can opt for the core i5 presented, which are extremely powerful, or core i3 of this top 10, since They would only have to aim for more power if they are going to buy one of the top 5 video cards of 2017.
All of these rankings have been evaluated using benchmark techniques. For those who do not know, the benchmark is a technique used to know the performance of the hardware of a PC. There are many software to do this. Everything consists of graphic, sound and processing tests that evaluate hardware speeds and capabilities.


Processors: Intel Vs. AMD

These two brands have been in dispute for a lifetime, but neither has ever imposed on the other. It is true that in 2017 and already a couple of years ago, Intel has managed to impose itself with a lot of models in the extreme range and CPUs for servers. But the competition of the rest of the ranges low, medium and high, are balanced. Intel always has more quantity, but the quality of both is the same.

Always when you have to build a PC you have to think first of the CPU, not even the graphics card comes first, since it is assumed that a processor of very good performance needs a motherboard of very good quality and already this is given by which will accept a very high quality graphics card.

If you are not an extreme gamer, what interests you is that the CPU perfectly withstands the video card at its maximum power. That’s why it does not matter much if it’s Intel or AMD, unless you’ve already bought or have the motherboard. In this case you will have to buy the model and brand supported by it. By this I mean that what you should look at is your pocket. If you have an AMD and an Intel processor that have about the same performance, then choose the cheapest one. Generally AMD has better prices and also has a better option of overlocking (hardware control technique that greatly increases performance, shortening the life of the component).


The Best Intel Processors

In 2015/2016/2017 Intel is in the fifth generation of microprocessors which have been called “Broadwell”. For now, more than performance improvements, Intel continues with the same family of colors i3, i5 and i7, and its low ranges such as Celeron and Pentium. Of course the ultra range is still that of the i7 Extreme. My recommendation is that when it comes to build a PC gamer opt to buy a core i3 of the best or a mid-high or high range i5.


The Best AMD Processors

AMD continues with the FX family in the mid-high, high and extreme range. As I have clarified throughout the article, AMD has not released too many types of CPUs like Intel, that is why basically if you are looking for a micro for your PC gamer, you should look, in the case of FX, how many colors have . An 8-cores FX is like an Intel Core i7 while a 6-cores FX is like a Core i5.
