I (and perhaps other people too) would
like to see more data about the CPU's (e.g. integer, floating performance,
etc), not just a number. I don't even know what that number represents. If
that info is somewhere on the page, I apologise, but you should consider
putting it front, or emphasise it.
Except this tiny thing, I like this page, because there's a lot of
The benchmark numbers are based upon Intel's
iCOMP Index, which is a combined rating of indicators that test
integer, floating point, and application performance. Non-Intel
manufacturers usually use the WinStone set of benchmarking routines. All
the benchmarks come directly from the manufacturers and other reliable
sources, and are linked to the Scorecard benchmark numbers respectively.
As you've likely discovered, everyone uses a different benchmark method
and compares their products to a different set of their competitor's
products. The CPU Scorecard places all the various
benchmark scores along one relative scale, for more convenient reference.
Note that iCOMP, WinStone, and other benchmark techniques can only
provide an approximate indication of how each CPU will perform in a
particular system configuration and suite of software. They are an average
of business application and gaming performance, and your mileage will vary
depending on motherboard, memory, hard drive, and video specifications.
While showing separate floating point and integer numbers may be
interesting, they may be more confusing to most visitors trying to compare
one CPU with another.
