cpu_graph

So you're in the market for a CPU, how do you determine the best value at various price points? Do you care most about single-threaded performance or overall multi-core performance? This scatter plot of CPU price vs performance has you covered!

I wrote about the features of this on my blog, and you can find a live version of the graph at jcward.com/cpu_graph/

Data is downloaded from the fabulous cpubenchmark.net - if you're buying a CPU, please click through one of their referral links to Amazon or Newegg as thanks for the service they provide.

Usage

./refresh.sh

Grabs the data, parses it, and writes index.html for your browsing enjoyment.

On the page you can type a comma-separated list of search terms into the box to highlight certain CPUs (e.g. 3770,4770 to search for those CPU families.)
