How to install an Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) kit - and why You might Want One

Intel's new Wi-Fi 6 kits are the latest offerings from the company allowing desktop PC users without built-in Wi-Fi in their systems a chance to get on board with the fastest speeds possible. The desktop wireless M.2 2230 kit can support a theoretical maximum of 2.4 Gpbs, roughly three times faster than traditional Wi-Fi 5 tech.

CPUs/Processors

CPU (is also known as Central Processing Unit or Processor) is the most important component of a computer. CPU/Processor is used to explain computer instructions and process software data in computer. CPU/Processor can be divided into desktop processors, server processors, mobile processors. Intel and AMD are the most famous CPU/Processor manufacturers. They have released single-core / dual-core processors / quad-core processors / six-Core Processors / eight-core processors series. The most critical component in any computer is the CPU (Central Processing Unit), where all of the "computing" actually occurs. It interprets and executes instructions and data contained in software programs, incoming signals from network sources, and the commands of its user. The more generic term 'processor' is often used to refer to a CPU, as well. The power and performance of the CPU is the prime determinants of a computer's overall performance.

Newegg is proud to offer a wide variety of CPUs/Processors from Intel and AMD, includes the server & workstation / Desktop processors ; Such as Intel CPU selections: Xeon E5 family, Xeon E3 family, Xeon / Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, Pentium, Celeron ; AMD processors: Opteron series / FX-Series, A-Series APU, Athlon, AM1, etc. Find the CPUs/Processors you are looking for at Newegg.com, and enjoy the smoothest, most pleasurable online shopping experience around!

WARNING: Products with exposed solder may contain lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. Please wash hands after handling internal components and motherboards and avoid inhalation of fumes if heating the solder.

A CPU processor acts as the operations center of a computer. The CPU drives other components of the system to perform the commands of the user. Processors are available in computers, phones, TVs and other electronic devices that run programs. The CPU sits at the heart of the system of a computer connected to the motherboard. It has several key features that enhance the usability of a computer. Newegg provides a wide variety of quality CPU processors for different devices. 

CPU Processors Allow Computers to Multitask

A single CPU quickly switches back and forth between various tasks to augment multitasking. This increases the processor speed, and makes a computer perform optimally. The processor works with the operating system to ensure that there's no data loss. A multi-core processor contains more than one component, and only the bus interface component communicates data in and out. A multi-core processor also ensures that one core runs at full capacity on tasks without slowing down other tasks or clogging other cores. Desktop CPUs handle the needs of desktop computers. The desktop processors provide a high thermal tolerance, and are compatible with overclocking. Intel® and AMD desktop processors are the most popular. The desktop CPUs of the two brands have increased power and execution that enhance the overall working of computers.

Server CPUs Are the Heart of a Server

A server system responds to requests in a computer network to help provide a network service. Server processors provide incredible scalability and performance for handling demanding tasks with the efficiency that enterprises require. A server CPU runs for a long time at sustained loads from different users. Servers can support multiple processors, depending on the applications they undertake. The computer processors operate at high frequencies to process more data.

Mobile CPUs Save Power on Portable Computers

Mobile processors use less voltage, and have enhanced sleep mode capabilities. It's possible to adjust the mobile processors to different power levels. Turn off some sections of the chip that are not in use to save on energy. The processors offer unique features, such as Wireless Display technology (WiDi). This allows wireless transfer to media files to devices such as TVs.

CPU Processors Have Key Features That Enhance the Usage of a Computer

A processor’s cache acts as the memory of a computer for temporary storage. It has a fast memory that allows quick retrieval of files by the computer. The socket compatibility enables the interface between a CPU and a motherboard. Ensure that the processor is compatible with the socket of a motherboard for it to work. Integrated Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) perform calculations that relate to graphics. A desktop processor with a high frequency enhances better performance for your device. Some CPUs with lower frequency perform better than those with a high frequency, depending on the infrastructure of the processor. The thermal design power of a CPU determines the heat given off by a processor. It directly affects the cooling device required for a CPU processor.
