Default Re: CPU rankings list?

this is a great idea.....

The 920 should be as good as a dual core, but is future proof for later utilization and its dollar performance/cost ratio is greater than any extreme processor, righ? LOL

for the cost to performance it would make no sense for anything other than a i7 920


Corei7 920 OC'd 3.4 ghz @ 1.375 v (6409 3dmarks)
Gigabyte UD5 x58 MB
G.Skill 3x1 GB DDR3 1333 OC'd 1550 @ 1.575 v
2 x GeForce 8800GT 16x16 2.0 SLI OC'd 650 mhz
Western Digital Black HD 32MB Cache 640GB

It's not a ranking per se', but this is a good site I use for baseline marks and checks. What I lke about it the most is it goes back a few years to the older, but just as capable, cpu's that are still out... it also does GPU, and even memory...

Performance Charts - Tom's Hardware


Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W

you really couldn't make one of these thats absolutely fair... you'd have to make duals and quads separate...... there's so many aspects of CPUs that GPUs dont have which make them much harder to rank... we could make a list, but it would end up being about 10 distinct lists

NZXT Lexa BlackLine w/ Red LEDs | Corsair TX-750 | Gigabyte EP45-DS3P | Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 3.6GHz
2x 2GB Kingston HyperX PC2-6400 @ 960MHz (5-4-4-13) | 3x Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB HDD in RAID5
2x HIS Radeon HD 4850 @ 761/1129 in CrossFireX w/ Thermaltake DuOrbs | Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro

Maybe it could take into account price to performance and over clocking potential

Both of these are always taken into account when buying, and show a CPU's true potential

We could just do it over preference. Start with one list of the 10 somebody likes the most. Using the input from users, you could add and take away, and reorder them until most people decide its a good list.

Thing is, it seems like this whole idea is rendered useless since we have the almighty search button built into this forum. What's so wrong about someone typing in a few cpu names and seeing what has previously been said about each one -- about a thousand times.
