Welcome to the PC Pitstop Driver Library, the internet's most complete and comprehensive source for driver information.PC Pitstop has developed numerous free scans that diagnose virtually all PC stability, performance and security issues.The CPU (Central Processing Unit), or processor, is fundamentally the brain of your computer, so it should be among your first purchases when building or updating your system.
CPU-motherboard compatibility is determined by the type of socket the processor fits into.
Also, with many wireless adapters it is important to stay current as updates often contain security fixes.
A driver update may also improve stability and performance, or may fix issues with games, programs and power management.
For example, Socket 754, Socket 939 and Socket 940 are designed to work with AMD processors, while Socket 478 and LGA Socket 775 are for Intel processors.
In this video we cover the basics on how to choose a CPU. More advanced CPUs can perform various tasks at once and perform them faster.
