Few PC upgrades are more important than a better computer processor—or CPU—for your workgroup’s workstations. From accounting desks to medical offices, computers are used and required in so many operations that a slow computer CPU can drastically affect the productivity of the entire office. In some cases, such as the recently legislated electronic medical records requirements for doctors and hospitals, an updated computer processor is the only way to handle HIPPA-compliant software.
Computer processor technology has come a long way in the last few years. Nowadays, it’s not just speed (CPU GHz), it’s also cache and cores. The level of cache on a computer CPU varies generally between 1MB to 3MB for desktops, and 20MB+ for a top-of-the-line server or workstation. More cache means quicker file and application response. CPU cores operate like highways, allowing more traffic in and out of the computer processor. Much like cache, cores are a valuable addition to any upgrade and greatly increase the performance of a PC and the productivity of a business.
Depending on the computing power required for a business, you may want to invest in different type of computing devices. The CPU power for notebook computers differs greatly from a tablet, which differs greatly from a mobile desktop or a workstation. Businesses would be wise to look at the specs of the many models in our inventory. Here at PC Connection, our representatives are prepared to respond to any questions you may have and will work with you to find the computer processor upgrade that would best serve the needs of your business.
