Processor Chart (Showing Years and Processor Models)

Hey Experts,

I am looking a chart or whatever shows it the best of what processor came out when what is better then the other. If possible, I would like it the show Intel and AMD processors if possible. I just want something that I can refenece quickly to see how good a certain processor is.

Is there a document or websites out there that does this? I would like everything on one page, not a website I have to search on.

Let me know if you have any questions...

Passmark Charts http://www.cpubenchmark.net/  Quick and easy comparison, no years though and multiple charts.  There are a lot of CPUs ...

Geekbench http://browser.primatelabs.com/processor-benchmarks#2 Similar as well and also categorizes.

That's going to be a problem because there have been thousands of CPU models over the years.  But if you are just looking for the best current CPUs, then the links above should be good enough.

Okay maybe I'm asking the wrong question...I know the Intel line of processors pretty well but not so much with AMD and others. How do I know which is better than another? What are the factors and in what order? GHz, cores, cache? That kind of stuff...that way it doesn't matter what kind it is, I can just look at the specs and know.

Note nobus's comments above, that pretty much nails it.  

The CPU you'd choose for a server would be different from that on a business desk to that on a gaming computer to that of a home computer.

>>  GHz, cores, cache?

I'd put in this order:  Cores, GHz, cache.  But you need a modern OS to take full advantage of cores.

Roughly Intel CPUs outperform AMD ones and do so with less power.
AMD CPUs with built in graphics outperform Intel CPU and Intel graphics chipsets at lower cost.

I'm just looking for regular desktop and laptops...if I'm looking at two models of laptops and one has a Intel processor and the other has a AMD processor, how do I know which one is better?

You just have to look them up in the benchmarks.  That's what they are there for.

to make things simple, post the cpu's. in general, iprefer intel ones though
