UserBenchmark

Speed test your CPU in less than a minute.
 January 2017 CPU Rankings

Welcome to our desktop CPU comparison. We calculate effective speed which measures real world performance for typical consumers. Effective speed is adjusted by price to yield a value for money rating. Calculated values don't always paint the whole picture so we check them against hundreds of individual user ratings. The customizable table below combines these factors and more to bring you the definitive list of top CPUs. [CPUPro]

User sentiment trumps benchmarks for this comparison.
