We've compared Intel and AMD CPUs from Amazon Australia to see how their prices stack up against other Aussie retailers.
If you’re brave enough to build your own custom PC from scratch, you won’t get far without a central processing unit (CPU or simply processor). Without a CPU, you’ve pretty much got an expensive breadbox on your hands.
This chip is the head honcho inside your PC. It's responsible for carrying out every task your computer can perform, and coordinates every other component so that you’ve got a fully functioning PC.
While there’s a huge market for PC processors (and some that suit different needs for different types of users), the most popular brands, like Intel and AMD, will give you everything you need in a home computer. If you’re on the hunt for a new CPU, we’ve rounded up the most popular products in Australia and compared them side-by-side so you can find the cheapest price.
Prices were last checked between 20 Dec 2017 and 22 Dec 2017 and may be subject to change. Prices include any discounts but exclude potential shipping charges.
