Best Desktop Processors: CPU Hierarchy

Best CPUs
Best CPUs

If you are thinking to upgrade your PC or buying a new PC, CPU and GPU play an important role in performance. With so many processors available in the market, it is really hard to select one. So, I decided to make this list of CPUs. In this list, CPUs are ranked based on their performance.

Here is the CPU Hierarchy to understand what CPU is better. I have also added their 3D Mark Time Spy Physics Score to give you an idea of why the CPU is ranked higher.
