2020 CPU Hierarchy - Best Gaming CPUs ranked

Deciding which CPU to select has a great effect on your PC performance and that is what makes it the computer's most important part. There are so many CPUs from both Intel and AMD, and that might get you confused on which one to buy. If you want to know how a CPU stacks up against the competition, then you are in the right place.

Below, we have ranked all the Desktop and Laptop CPUs from Intel and AMD. The order in the gaming performance table is based on a benchmark of 90 games.

There is a productivity performance table, which also shows single- and multi-core scores. The speed score gives you an idea of performance in everyday desktop PC applications, while the productivity column is based on performance in multi-threaded application like rendering and video encoding.

Your CPU has a huge effect on overall performance and, to many, is a computer's most important component. But when it comes time to buying a CPU for your desktop, you'll find a dizzying collection of model numbers and specs from both Intel and AMD. We've listed our the best CPUs for gaming and best processors for work in other articles, but if you want to know how each chip stacks up against all the others and how we come to our decisions, this CPU Hierarchy is for you.

Below, we have ranked all the consumer Intel 9th, 8th and 7th Gen processors, along with AMD's Ryzen and Threadripper chips from all three generations. We determined the order in the first table based on a geometric mean of gaming performance in four titles: Grand Theft Auto V, Hitman 2, Final Fantasy XV, and World of Tanks.

We also include an application performance metric in our second application score table, which we've split up into single- and multi-core measurements. We generated the single-threaded metric via a geometric mean of performance in single-threaded LAME, Cinebench, POV-Ray and y-cruncher applications, giving you a good idea of performance in everyday desktop PC applications. The multi-threaded workload column is based on performance in 7zip, Cinebench, POV-ray, vray, Blender, and Handbrake x264 and x265 workloads represent performance in productivity-focused applications that tend to require more compute horsepower.

The most powerful chip gets a 100 and all others are scored relative to it. If you want our recommendations for specific price bands, please check out our Best CPUs for gaming page.
