Tired of running around the market to figure out the price and availability of PC components that you are considering for your next build? Worry not because we have already prepared the updated price lists for major components like motherboard, RAM, and SSD. And in this post, we have curated the list of all the desktop processor (CPU) from Intel and AMD that are currently available in Nepal along with their latest price.

How to choose a processor? (A mini-guide)

When choosing a processor, you need to be sure about what you want from your setup. If you are looking to build a home PC for basic tasks, you won’t need a powerful CPU—one from Intel’s i3, i5 or AMD’s Ryzen 3 lineup will suffice in this case.

On the other hand, if you’re building a gaming PC or a content creation workstation, you will need more powerful silicon with a higher core/thread count.

Cores/Threads

In a processor, cores divide the work of the CPU making it more efficient. Cores are further divided into threads. However, not all workloads can make use of higher core/thread counts. Usually, you will look for more cores if you are into content creation. The more the core/thread, the more fluid will tasks like multitasking and video editing be. To note, most modern-day games won’t benefit from a high core count.

Clock Speed

So for a gaming setup, the better choice is to go for a CPU with higher clock speeds. You don’t need more cores, four to eight cores will do the trick most of the time. Manufacturers advertise processors with a base clock and a maximum clock speed.

You should be aware that the CPU can maintain maximum clock speed only for a short period and that if you have capable cooling. Additionally, the max boost clock specified by the vendor usually refers to a single-core boost frequency. On the other hand, some CPUs can even be unlocked for higher clock speed.

TDP

The next thing to consider is TDP. Short for Thermal Design Power, it is the maximum heat generated by the processor at stock speed. If you are going for a higher TDP processor, make sure that your PSU (Power Supply Unit) can supply the required power. Also, the cooling setup should be able to dissipate heat effectively.

Architecture

It would be a big mistake to compare processors solely based on their core/thread count or clock frequency. The processor architecture determines how its components are organized, functions that they can accomplish, and how it’s accomplished. It plays a major role in the performance of the processor.

Two CPUs with the same core count may have different clock speeds which they will maintain for different periods. Processors with the same clock speed may have different Instruction Per Cycle (IPC), resulting in different levels of performance.

Also, it is one of the most important determinants of performance upgrade over any two consecutive iterations of a company’s CPU. So, it is always wise to consult benchmark tests and reviews of processors from trusted sources before you spend your hard-earned cash on one.
