What you need to know

  • Details on online retailers' product pages are sometimes erroneous. Better to stick the sources. The ARK comparison of all five Intel CPUs can be found here while AMD's here.
  • Above £300 (Intel) and £200 (AMD), it's essentially choose what you want.
  • I've decided to shy away from server processors as they are another market altogether.
  • This pricelist will be updated every month.
  • All CPUs are boxed with or without HSF, no OEM, no refurbished, no ex-display, no second hand, only from reputable UK vendors, price doesn't always include delivery.
  • Overclocking as well as business features (Vpro for e.g.) have not been taken into account to draw that list.
