Benchmark Databases

The CPU Scorecard scores are based upon a combined rating of integer, floating-point, and multimedia performance.

Published CPU benchmarks, including those listed below, are converted to a common scale using comparative statistics.

Chris' Lightwave Benchmarks An extensive, searchable database of Mac and PC processor benchmarks, based on NewTek's Lightwave graphics software.
Ideas International A comprehensive listing of server, workstation, and PC processor benchmark sources.
Overclockers Australia PC Database A searchable database of benchmark results from those who have overclocked their PC processors.
Passmark Performance Test:
 CPU Review
A comparative review of Intel and AMD processors, benchmarked on Passmark's Performance Test software.
PPC Crosscompilation Benchmarks Linux-based cross-platform benchmarks
Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation
The gold standard in server, workstation, and PC benchmarking metrics.

Now searchable through the Ace's Hardware SPEC Dataminer

Tabsnet A searchable database of single- and multi-processor benchmark results using the Persistence of Vision raytracing program (POVRAY).
Top500 Listing the top 500 fastest installed supercomputers in the world, presented by Mannheim University and U of Tennessee
Transaction Processing Performance Council
Delivering trusted transaction processing and database benchmarks to the workstation/server industry.

A word of caution about CPU benchmarks...
When you get right down to it, computer processor benchmarks are an imprecise and transitory method of comparing how fast/well/suitably a given list of computer systems will perform for you.

They are prone to error, skew, and hype. They are highly dependent upon the specific test configuration from which they result. And the various speeds and capabilities of the individual computer hardware components (hard drive, bus, memory, video, et al) in a system can be at least as important to overall performance as is the speed of the CPU.

But flawed as they are, CPU benchmarks can arguably provide the most important information about how fast a computer will... well, compute!

Count on The CPU Scorecard to keep all the best benchmarks in their proper places!
