#Advert: Enjoy Fast FAST Windows on Prostar laptops.

Windows 10 is the operating system version where Microsoft finally "got it right," where the features, performance, bloat, and security issues balance out favorably for the user. The balance is so favorable that the Windows users I know are actually satisfied with bug fixes and application updates instead of a whole new version of Windows.

You may be one of the audio visual content creators who likes your software on Windows 10, but wants tasks completed faster. In that situation, a new CPU (and RAM upgrade) may satisfy your desire for higher performance.

If you are a fan of gaming on Windows 10, you are probably interested in ways to increase your performance short of replacing the whole machine. Especially If you are having a difficult time finding a reasonably priced high end graphics processor, a new CPU (and RAM upgrade) may be what you need.

#Advert: Want speed? Upgrade your DDR4 RAM!

EXAMPLE:  X-570 motherboard with an upgradable CPU

Socket      Ryzen CPU Model     Core Count      Base Clock      Architecture

AM4         Ryzen 7 3600X       06 cores        3.8 GHz         Zen 2
AM4         Ryzen 5 5600X       06 cores        3.7 GHz         Zen 3
AM4         Ryzen 5 5800X       08 cores        3.8 GHz         Zen 3
AM4         Ryzen 5 5900X       12 cores        3.7 GHz         Zen 3

Consider upgrading RAM to maintain 2 GB per core for moderate tasks.

Good news is that you do not always need to change the motherboard. If you started with a newer motherboard, but were modest in CPU selection, it may be a simple matter to swap out the old CPU for a newer one with a higher Core count. More cores can bring significant increases in performance in office workstations and multimedia editing computers.

For gaming, it is often the higher clock speeds which bring more performance. Gaming tends to load up a processor with fewer processes and threads, but needs a faster CPU clock to dish out more data for the GPU to process into frames on your screen.

The suggestion for drop-in replacements is this: note the model and socket type of your current CPU. Next, go shopping for CPUs sompatible with the same socket type, but with more cores and, if possible, a higher clock speed. For example, if you have an X-99 board containing a Xeon with 6 cores, look around for

EXAMPLE:  X-99 motherboard with an upgradable CPU

Socket      Xeon CPU Model      Core Count      Base Clock

LGA-2011    E5-2620 V3          06 cores        3.2 GHz
LGA-2011    E5-2678 V3          12 cores        3.3 GHz
LGA-2011    E5-2698 V3          16 cores        3.6 GHz

Consider upgrading RAM to maintain 2 GB per core for moderate tasks.

Performance gains will vary depending on the type of workload you put on the computer. Expect anywhare from 15% to 30% depending on the scope of the upgrade: increased cores, ram, and moving from Zen 2 to Zen 3 matter the most. Changing from a 6 core Xeon to a 16 core model 2698 is a major change for users of heavily multithreaded applications.
