Together with the rest of the motherboard.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
Please remember...

Yeah,

You would probably need the entire motherboard... along with your entire computer.  The CPU is your central processing unit, which is just the part that performs all your "processing" / number crunching.  The CPU needs a place to store temporary data (memory), as well as program instructions (hard drive / memory), and also will need to utilize various other hardware that are not available on your CPU.

If you wish to use a stand alone unit to program and control a robot, I would highly recommend a micro-controller.  More can be read about a microcontroller here:

Hope this helps!
