If you are then you should visit AnandTech‘s benchmark page. It has a simple to use interface that allows to select two different CPU’s, SSD’s, or GPU’s and then configures a comparison ratings chart with categories like “Video creation”, x264 HD Encode Test, “Windows Media Encoder 9 x64”, “Far Cry 2 playback”…etc. As well the comparison chart includes the overall benchmark comparison at the very top of the chart. So if you are looking/debating between two different CPU’s, SSD’s or GPU’s then look no further and see.
