My System Specs

Default The Anandtech Intel CPU Benchmarks.

Not sure how accurate this is and what methodology was involved or not but I really like the way they have presented this and also included games benchmark at the bottom.

Bench - CPU - AnandTech :: Your Source for Hardware Analysis and News

Made me think twice about upgrading my OC'ed E8500 to a i5 760. I will see little to no difference in games according to this. I guess I will way a while to see what else is down the pipe now instead.

Just sharing.

Really easy to compare, great tool!

This has been available for about 2 years now, give or take.

They also now have a GPU and SSD bench comparison graph of the same.

Ya is a nice tool. It also confirms what I am thinking about the need to always upgrade. It's sure fun but it's certainly not necessary. I still have my E8600, my son is using it in his rig and I can see that it still can compete well with the latest crop of new CPUs.

Nice, I somehow missed this tool. only thing I would like is if you could set the cpu speed but that takes allot more data to be able to accomplish.
