Processor (CPU) - Intel & AMD

Sometimes people mistakenly believe the case or chassis of a computer is the CPU (processor). However, a CPU is an internal component of the computer system.

The CPU is basically the brains of the computer as it processes all the number crunching of the data. The faster that the processor can process calculation, the faster the computer will run.

Processors are manufactured by two major companies; AMD and Intel. Both companies are in direct competition resulting in fierce pricing for faster and faster processors so everybody wins!
