When you build a PC, you're often making a series of delicate trade-offs. After all, most of us have budget limits on any PC we build, and making the most of that budget is key.
To help you determine the sweet spot where price and performance cross over for CPUs, we used data compiled by ExtremeTech and created a dataset that can direclty be loaded into InfoScope. In their testing about The Right Desktop Processor: CPU Price/Performance, they looked at a mix of applications, including video encoding, 3D modeling and rendering, PC gaming, office applications and web content creation. They used a mix of synthetic, applications-based and pure applications benchmarks to generate the results. The end goal is to help you determine which CPU might be the right one for your needs.
