CPU Real World Comparisons

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
In the Enthusiast Market (us OC Lovers), we look at our CPU as the golden ticket to speed, while many of us know that often the Hard Drive is a major bottleneck in performance for a computer, though we still consider the CPU as the main factor for determining what system to purchase. After all one could get a SSD if they want to reduce the Data Transfer bottleneck..

Therefore for the purpose of real world comparisons, we will be using Cars, specifically racing model cars, as a relative comparisons to how CPUs stack up in the Racing Car World...

Naturally a SSD would be indicative to using Nitrous Oxide, while a 5900 RPM HDD would be indicative to using regular unleaded gas, and a 7200 RPM HDD would be like using Premium Unleaded Gas, 10,000 RPM would be Ultra Premium Unleaded Gas... Of course using RAID with 2 or more HDD would be indicative to using Turbo to push more air to the intake... And of course RAID with 2 SSDs would be indicative to using Twin Turbo & other aftermarket parts to increase performance exponentially. (If you are using IDE Ribbon cable still, it's TIME to get a new PC! Get SATA or Get lost!) biggrin.gif

Now for all real world comparison purposes we will be comparing CPU GHz to Racing Car's Horse Power, for this is a major factor which determines how fast a car can go, though there are other parts which can also increase performance as well! (Like Turbo, etc)

(NOTE: This list is a work in progress, please feel free to give suggestions!)

CPU Description
Real World Car/Motorcycle Comparison

1.5 GHz Atom Processor
A Kawasaki Ninja 250cc Motorsport Bike (Because it's a Single Core CPU!)

2.0 GHz Pentium Dual Core
200 HP Kia Optima LX (Nothing special here, really)

2 GHz Intel Core i3 DC CPU w/ Turbo Boost
Dodge Colt 195 HP w/ Turbo & Front Wheel Drive

2.67 GHz Intel Core i5-750 Quad Core CPU 2/ Turbo Boost
Chevrolet HHR SS - 260 HP Turbo Charged 4 Cyclinder

3.06 GHz Intel Core i7-950 w/ Hyper Threading & Turbo Boost
Nissan 300ZX - Z32 - 3.0 liter V6 300 HP Twin Turbo FWD ROAD RAGER!
(Yeah, it's a pretty quick car, but not insane!)

=======================================

In This area we will be talking about Overclocked CPUs only, like the New Sandy Bridge i7-2600k & the i7-990x! biggrin.gif

More coming later!

Please add to the fun & quality of the post, thanks...

Are you even serious about this thread?

How is that helpful in anyway? You think people will think about cars when buying a CPU?

What a bunch of useless, pretentious crap.
