The right time to sell
Generally, we advise our customers to sell their processors and CPUs when:
- Tasks aren’t running because your CPU is running at 100% utilization
- Updates to applications or new software requirements are above the chip’s capabilities
- They have already replaced old equipment and are no longer using the processors
- The equipment is broken
Generally speaking a processor or CPU becomes scrap once it is physically broken and yet some value can still be salvaged from precious metals.
The amount a scrap CPU is worth depends on its state and what precious metals can be salvaged. If you provide us with a detailed breakdown of the chip model and make, we can get you an accurate quote.
If you have bulk amounts of broken processors, contact us to see if we might be able to fix them to increase their resale value.
