I'm looking for current statistics that could be used to compare different CPUs. I'm not necessarily looking for comparisons of chips using the same clock either (AMD 1GHz vs. Intel 1GHz).

For example, over at Mike's Hardware, the upcoming Alpha 21364 (EV7) is "expected to deliver around 804 SPECint2000 and 1253 SPECfp2000". I think I've read similar 'SPEC' data before, but I don't recall.

Hopefully that made sense. Also, I'm not interested in "Can't beat the P4", or "Get an AMD XP 75000+".

Thanks,
I'll go back to searching.

Well, the people that come up with the SPECInt benchmarks are these guys. I haven't really looked through that site, so it may only be theoretical stuff, with little real data. Worth a shot, though.

They do post real numbers here for CPU benchmarks.

:lol: I didn't even realize 'spec' was a company. Thanks for the link.

Also, I have to raise the obligitory point that megahertz is only one (small) factor in the overall speed of your computer. Busses, memory bandwidth and dozens of other factors contribute to how "fast" something is.

Yeah, I know you already knew this. Just stating the obvious. :)
