17 processors from Intel and AMD compared

Posted on Sunday, March 22 2009 @ 02:26:57 CET by

The Tech Report has published a big processor roundup, it includes a total of 17 popular processors from AMD and Intel. You can read the report over here.
Before inviting you to bask in the glow of our many charts and scatter plots, we should clarify this article's purpose. This isn't an exhaustive value assessment of all current desktop processors, nor should it be your one-stop guide to picking a new CPU. Rather, this is an attempt to determine how our collection of test processors—almost exclusively enthusiast items priced above $100—compare when we study both pricing and performance simultaneously.

Is a Core i7-920 worth the extra cost over a Phenom II X4 940 for video encoding buffs? Are dual-core CPUs like the Core 2 Duo E8400 still compelling choices compared to low-end triple- and quad-core offerings? Those are some questions this article should help answer.
