out of the CPU's that are currently out, I'd rate CPU's roughly like this, at stock speeds. though it often depends on the purpose:

AMD Opteron (dual core)

AMD Athlon 64 X2

AMD Opteron (single core)

AMD Athlon 64

Intel Xeon

Intel Pentium 4 Northwood / Prescott

AMD Sempron socket 754

AMD Sempron / Athlon XP socket A

Intel Celeron D

AMD Athlon XP-M (except they can overclock pretty well)

Intel Celeron (based on Pentium 4)

Intel Pentium M

AMD Athlon

Intel Pentium 3

Intel Pentium 4 Willamette core

AMD Duron / Intel Celeron (based on Pentium 3)


AMD K6-II / Intel Pentium 2 / Intel Celeron (based on Pentium 2)


AMD K5 / Intel Pentium Pro

Intel Pentium

Intel 80486 DX

Intel 80486

Intel 80386

Intel 80286

Intel 8086 (their first CPU)

IBM 8080
