For the next month or so, we'll be centring the HEXUS question of the week around which PC components you, the readers, choose to use on a daily basis. Reviewing the best the industry has to offer is both fun and exciting, but discussing what people actually go out and buy can be even more insightful.
To get us started, we'll begin with the beating heart of any PC; the CPU. Choosing a chip is a key decision in laying the foundation for a new build, or indeed a laptop, and with AMD Ryzen and Intel Core both vying to meet the needs of today's user, there has never been a better array of processors to choose from.
In order to learn where our hard-earned notes are going, we're asking: which CPU are you using? We're interested in hearing about the reasons behind your decision, and whether or not the chip is doing everything you need, so let us know using the comments facility below.
