Best INTEL Processor For Mid to High-End Gaming PC

Best INTEL Processor For Mid to High-End Gaming PC

Intel offers several processors that are widely held to be some of the best CPU's around for PC gaming systems. They exist in a natural progression of both performance and price, but that doesn't mean the most expensive is necessarily the best choice. It's all about what you plan to do with your system and what your long and short term budgets are. For near term budgeting, consider the reasonable life expectancy of your next PC purchase before you will probably want to replace it. For casual gamers purchasing a top of the line machine, this could be 5+ years. On the other hand, casual gamers may find it just as satisfying and cheaper to purchase a middle of the line machine now and replace it with whatever is middle of the road 2-3 years down the line. Hardcore gamers may find themselves upgrading more often, and should budget accordingly.

So what's the best Intel gaming processor? Let's take a look at them:

Intel Core i3 - Intel's Mid Desktop Gaming CPUs

MÄK’s web technologies enable migration to a service-oriented architecture

In case you missed it, here’s a recent customer win highlighting the Air Force’s choice to go with MÄK’s interoperability tools - enjoy!

The US Air Force chose several MÄK interoperability products for the Air Force Modeling and Simulation Training Toolkit (AFMSTT) program, including the new MÄK WebLVC Server, VR-Exchange, and MÄK Data Logger.

Based on the Air Force’s Air Warfare Simulation (AWSIM) model, the AFMSTT system enables training of senior commanders and staff for joint air warfare and operations. MÄK’s tools will be used to help migrate the AFMSTT system to a service-oriented architecture based on High Level Architecture (HLA) interoperability and web technologies. The program uses MÄK’s WebLVC Server to help monitor, control, and interact with core AWSIM and AFMSTT components through lightweight, thin clients running in a browser.
