8 Most Powerful CPUs on the Market in 2015

There's no component of your PC working harder than the CPU. It's running your operating system and programs as complex as Battlefield 4 and as simple as Notepad. Today's desktop processors can handle just about anything you throw at them, and can even be overclocked to better multitasking performance. You don't have to buy the most expensive processor around to have a great PC experience. Experts of Insidermonkey researched and tested the best CPUs around, and these are the most powerful CPUs on the market in 2015.

Although Intel has dominated our CPU recommendations, this is due to their current strong position in the CPU market. AMD’s competing processors are a fine platform, and won’t exactly perform badly in games, but the company remains a step behind Intel, unable to offer the same level of performance at the same price. AMD's new Zen CPU, releasing in 2016, could majorly shake things up, with a huge expected jump in instructions per clock. But remember, they are not for everyone. You most probably will never need that much processing power for yourself in your life, unless you work in a field which requires it. For the people who do, see our list of the most powerful GPUs on the market in 2015 as well.
