Back to BenchmarksBack to NewsScorecard Key
Best BEST Performance/Price Grade: A+ (Top of the Class) %% (A+)
RECOMMENDED: The current price/performance leader.
Good GOOD Performance/Price Grade: A (OK) %% (A, B)
RECOMMENDED: Computer systems based on this CPU give you the most power for the price.
Fair FAIR Performance/Price Grade: B (Better) to D (Dismal) %% (C, D, E)
CANNOT RECOMMEND: If you're buying a computer built around this CPU, make sure you're getting a good deal on its other components.
Poor POOR Performance/Price Grade: F (Forget it) %% (F)
NOT RECOMMENDED: Either the price is too high for the marginal performance gain offered to the typical computer user, or the computer will not likely be fast enough to adequately run the latest applications, games, or operating systems.
