https://www.cpubenchmark.net talks about CPU Mark
what are other industry standard benchmark references to use when comparing the strengths of one CPU config to another. (while trying to determine before deployments)

the best benchmark is your actual workbench.
having super extensions useful in 3D rendering is useless to a database server for example.
what do you plan to run on these computers ?

>>database server for example. what do you plan to run on these computers ?
can you give guideline of how you will use the CPU spec to evaluate it is appropriate for specific usage, in your example as db, before bringing it to actual local workbench?

does the 'CPU Mark' mentioned in the above site of any value to you from your observation?

the specs say 'Integrated' ; what value do you expect to see there? can you guide?

that link said " IPC is hard to measure, and won't appear on any spec sheets. "
if this is a good industry standard benchmark , how can we easily find or determine IPC..
take an example: how can you know ipc for intel i7-6600U

>>i still find cpubenchmarks  (from your link) one of the best
that answers question.

what really after is this:the CPU and overall performance was fine.. (regular drive)
now need to upgrade to new hardware.. win 10, ssd, 8GB RAM, trying to decide what level of advanced CPU needed for SQL 2016.

so when i look at a spec, i can go to the site and see where it stands. (good to know that is good enough of industry standard)
next step is (this may be a seperate question).. before settling on a CPU , getting it and testing it for performance, how can i
try to use such metrics to scale and see what new CPU would fit the bill for win10, sql 2016. there is going be some CPU with
*mediocore performance
*average performance
*excellent performance

how, if possible, to isolate such criterias using above mentioned benchmarks..


microsoft recommended at least 1Ghz processor for SQL 2008. but we found out that 3.3 GHz fared 'good' or decent
now, microsoft recommended at least 2Ghz processor for SQL 2016.. how do i scale that reasonably using such metrics, as first step, before, as next step to actual benchmark when getting to test with that cpu
