The fact that this processor is made exclusively to support high-end games, it comes with ultra-powerful features and functionality. The addition of these features is what makes the processor suitable for gaming and other heavy-duty tasks that most other CPUs cannot support. Games like CS: GO, Valorant, War Zone, and many others can be smoothly run onto this CPU. 

Firstly, this is a 3.50 GHz Intel Core i7-3770K Processor that comes with eight threads and four cores. The reason the cores and threads are added to any CPU is to improve its functionality and performance. Cores are actual hardware components, whereas the virtual component of the processor is threading: both combine to perform various functions within the processor. 

Threads improve computational speed-up and throughput. While on the other hand, threads perform numerous operating processors through the CU. Hence, the addition is extremely important. 

So, when we talk about this CPU, we see the total numbers of cores and threads count 4 and 8, respectively. This means the CPU is highly efficient in its performance, supports all kinds of online games that you are addicted to playing. 

Secondly, the CPU comes with an 8 MB L3 shared Cache that further increases the performance efficiency to support multiple high-end games and tasks. The Cache in a CPU is referred to as a small amount of memory that is within the CPU that holds the instructions temporarily and processes the data using extremely lesser space. 

The addition of 8 MB L3 shared Cache in this CPU makes it extraordinary in its functions and performance. So, when you buy it to support your heavy-duty games, rest assured that you will get premium results. 

Then, the CPU also contains a two-memory channel that collectively supports a maximum of up to 32GB of memory. With this increased memory, your processor gets super-fast with great internal space to store up many of your favorite things: offline games and other heavy apps. 

All these features combine to make this CPU the best-ever product to buy, especially the one considering for LGA 1155 socket. The socket itself is known to be powerful enough to support the functions of the CPU within the system and thus makes it capable of supporting all types of modern gaming. After all, this is what you are looking for here.

Pros
  • Highly stable and durable
  • Supports all types of heavy gaming
  • Lower energy consumption
Cons
  • A bit expensive

The top second on our list is this Intel Core i7 Processor i7-3770 that never stays behind in getting appreciation from us. Like any other high-end gaming processor, this one also comes with powerful features that keep you intact with your gaming community by showcasing better performance, speed, and availability. 

Foremost, this processor comes with 3.4 GHz of clock speed, meaning that the processor is able to showcase ultra-fast speed and performance every time. Clock speed is referred to as the rate at with the processor executes a certain task; thus, the greater the clock speed, the better a processor at processing the task. 

Then, this processor comes along with a maximum Turbo Frequency of 3.9 GHz. Turbo Boost Technology is an advanced addition within a processor that ensures to run the processor core at a faster speed than the marked frequency. The best thing about this technology is that it does everything automatically. Thus, we say this processor has a maximum of 3.9 GHz Turbo Frequency, and this means the processor has the ability to run at an even faster speed and showcase increased performance of both its multithread and single-thread applications. 

Next comes Cache: this processor has about 8 MB of total Cache. This ensures to keep the processor working at a faster speed while simultaneously helping it to recover a large amount of data within seconds. This is probably the thing you must not ignore in your CPU as it makes it capable of handling all your heavy games and applications without ever letting it get slowed down in a fraction of seconds. 

Moreover, the maximum memory bandwidth of this processor is 225.6 GB/s. Now, what uses it can be to you? Well! It is the measure of the rate at which the processor reads and stores the data into a semiconductor memory. This means, the greater the CPUs memory bandwidth, the faster its speed is for processing various functions. 

This processor has everything any hard-core gamer would want to have in their gaming partner. Increased speed, powerful data processing feature, great memory, budget price, and an extraordinary look: this makes a gamer happy with both purchase and the use of the unit.

Pros
  • No compromise on performance
  • Budget price
  • Extraordinary speed
Cons
  • Customer support is not good

In the last, we have another powerful processor that also has amazingly helpful features to support not only your games but various other heavyweight applications. If you are a person who uses multiple heavy applications for video editing, web designing, graphic designing, and many others alongside playing multiple online games, then this processor has much in store for you. 

Besides all other features, the addition of greater Cores is something that makes a processor compatible with multiple online games. It also helps the processor to function continuously at a faster speed without ever lagging for a second. This processor is also amazing in this sense: it comes with added 4 Cores in total. 

No matter what online game you play, your speed and response matter a lot. These Cores help the processor to work at a faster speed. It improves its functionality and performance efficiency, thus making it capable of handling all types of games. 

In addition to it, what makes the processor working at a faster speed all the time is its Smart Cache of 6 MB. The speed of data recovery is faster and thus keeps the processor at ease to support all your gaming needs and requirements. 

Even though this cache count is a bit lesser than those of other processors in our list, but this doesn’t make this processor any less than those in performance. It equally keeps a gamer satisfied with its performance and game support. In addition, its support for various heavy-duty applications is impressive. 

Furthermore, this gaming processor has a maximum of 3.6 GHz of Turbo Frequency. This addition ensures to keep this processor working at a relatively greater speed than it is set to support. The increased speed is highly needed to support your gaming better, as any lag can make you fall for a complete gaming session. 

Last but not least, this gaming processor is kept cooler and working at efficient speed without getting overheated by its advanced Thermal Power Design. This Thermal Power Design has a maximum power of 77W that is more than enough to evacuate all the heat from the system without any trouble. The greater the power, the better is the heat extraction for the system, and thus, in turn, the better is the overall performance of the processor. 

Keeping all these things into consideration, we have listed this processor among our top 3 list. If you feel not satisfied with the above two processor options, you can go for this: it comes at a budget price and with zero compromises on its performance.
