Trading Computer Processor Comparison
Selecting the Right Processor
The most important decision you'll make is selecting the processor. Just selecting the most expensive processor might not be the right decision.
There are 2 factors to consider with an Intel processor - the single core speed and how many cores it has. Better single thread performance is more important for certain programs such as NinjaTrader 7, ThinkorSwim, etc. Programs such as TradeStation, eSignal or NinjaTrader 8 will benefit from faster multi thread processors.
Listed below are the best processors we sell in our trading computers.

|Blue Aura Advice||Don't let the low price fool you. This is a very powerful chip at an affordable price.||The fastest Core i5 processor we sell, great processor!||Fast clock speed, almost as fast as the 9900K. Only has 8 core, 8 threads. The 9900K has 16 threads. Awesome processor, we sell a lot of these in our trading computers.||This is our best selling processor, was #1 in speed but slightly outperformed by the new 9900KS special edition.||The new king, this is CPU Userbenchmark's #1 rated processor, ranks #1 out of 1197 tested processors.||This is one of Intel's best X series processors. Slightly slower clock speed than the 9900K/9900KS but has significantly more cores. Very fast, outstanding Intel X299 platform.|
Below are the top processors we sell listed by system model. Generally, the "Pro" systems are our more affordable models. The "Elite" are our best selling systems and "Extreme" models are configured with all the most powerful options (fastes RAM, hard drives, processor, etc).
