CPU chip/processor Benchmarks

(Source: cpubenchmark.net)

Here is a link to the single-thread benchmarks of more than 1,200 CPU's --- mostly Intel and AMD --- at 'www.cpubenchmark.net'.

    Before about 2020, the list of CPU make-models was on a single page. But, around 2020, the 'single-thread' page was separated into 4 different categories of CPU chips:

    • Desktop (default)
    • Laptop
    • Server
    • Mobile/Embedded

That site also breaks sorted CPU-ratings (of multi-processor/multi-thread benchmarks) into 4 groups:

It is not clear to me whether these benchmarks correspond to my computer usage. I think the single-thread benchmarks are probably more representative of my computer usage.

Most of the applications that I use are probably not written to take advantage of multiple-processors --- in other words, they have not been written to use multiple-threads.

Also there is a CPU-ratings page that sorts CPU's by the ratio of CPU-performance to heat-generation --- a measure of the efficiency of the CPU. The numeric figures on this page are CPU-PassMark-Rating-divided-by-Max-TDP (= Thermal Design Power).

    "You can, generally, use TDP to gauge power consumption of a chip, in that the smaller the number for TDP, the lower power consumption by the CPU."

If a chip does not appear on one of these sorted lists, you could also try the 'recent' laptops and portables list sorted by CPU performance, where 'recent' means that the first-benchmarks were submitted in the last 3 years.

(on low-power-consuming yet quite-capable CPU's)

In September 2021, several AMD Ryzen 7 chips stood out at the top of the CPU-performance-per-heat-generation chart --- CPU-PassMark-Rating-divided-by-Max-TDP (= Thermal Design Power). These Ryzen 7 chips had a ratio-rating of about 1,200.

And these AMD Ryzen 7 chips were in the top 10% of the single-thread benchmarks list.

But these Ryzen 7 chips are quite expensive and are not used in 'bargain' computers.

Some 'bargain' Intel Atom, Celeron, Pentium, and i3 chips in the CPU-performance-per-heat-generation chart (with their performance-to-heat ratio-rating), in Sep 2021, were:

  • Intel Pentium N6415, 578
  • Intel Pentium Silver N6000, 537
  • Intel Core i3-10110Y, 492
  • Intel Core i3-1000NG4, 450
  • Intel Pentium Silver N5030, 438
  • Intel Pentium Silver N5000, 432
  • Intel Celeron N5100, 423
  • Intel Celeron N4120, 418
  • Intel Celeron N4100, 409
  • Intel Celeron J6413, 408
  • Intel Celeron J6412, 404
  • Intel Pentium Gold 7505, 361
  • Intel Pentium N4200, 361
  • Intel Celeron J4500, 358

  • Intel Celeron N5015, 338
  • Intel Core i3-1125G4, 337
  • Intel Atom x7-Z8700, 328

Some 'bargain' AMD Athlon and Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 chips in the CPU-performance-per-heat-generation chart (with their performance-to-heat ratio-rating), in Sep 2021, were:
