          Compare CPU 2022

          Our CPU comparison with benchmarks is not just a simple processor ranking list, but also helps you to compare two processors with each other very easily. In addition to the CPU benchmarks, you will also find all the important technical data of the processors here. It has never been so easy to find a suitable processor, whether for a desktop, notebook or smartphone!

          Do some research in our numerous tables or search directly for a specific processor. We sorted the CPUs according to performance in the benchmarks, energy consumption and price.

          CPU Benchmarks

          Beside of technical cpu data, cpu-monkey is able to show the real cpu speed to you. We're using a bunch of favorite benchmarking software to realize that:

          CPU groups

          We have clearly divided all processors available in our benchmark database into groups for you. For example, all Intel Core i7 processors can be compared at a glance. In addition, all CPUs of a generation are divided into subgroups.

          MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ vs Apple A16 and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1
          Posted by Stefan on 2022-09-22
          With the Dimensity 9000+, Mediatek presents the latest of its smartphone chips. The successor to the Mediatek Dimensity 9000 achieves higher CPU and GPU clock frequencies thanks to better binning. The CPU clock of the prime core (A core) increases from 3.0 to 3.2 GHz. And the ARM Mali-G710 MP10 GPU can now clock at 0.9 GHz (previously 0.85 GHz).

          Both are a good improvement over the Dimensity 9000 in theory but the increase in performance should not usually be noticeable in practice. In the end, the overall performance of the Mediatek Dimensity 9000+ is impressive: Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is beaten in Geekbench 5 in both the single-core and multi-core benchmarks.
          The evolution of AMD Ryzen processors
          Posted by Stefan on 2022-09-06
          The AMD Ryzen processors are designed for the mid to high-end range and are grouped into the Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 classes. AMD follows the market leader Intel, which groups its Core i series (Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 and Core i9) identically.

          The AMD Ryzen processors were first introduced by AMD in Q1 2017. They are the successor to the not particularly successful AMD Bulldozer processors. The latter were manufactured using an outdated manufacturing process and could not keep up with the competing products from Intel. AMD lost a large portion of its desktop processor market share during this period.
          AMD Ryzen 7000 and Intel Core i 13 Gen at almost 6 GHz clock speed
          Posted by Stefan on 2022-08-29
          In September, both AMD and Intel are introducing their new mainstream desktop processors. It doesn't seem to have been as close as this year for a long time, leaked benchmarks of the new top models from AMD and Intel point to a head-to-head race.

          This year even the 6 GHz clock limit is almost within reach. With a good cooler and some overclocking it should be possible to reach the 6 GHz limit. But even in series production, the manufacturers try to realize the highest possible clock frequency, at least on one core.


          In our leaderboards, we have clearly compiled the best processors for specific categories for you. The leaderboards are always up to date and are regularly updated by us. The best processors are selected according to popularity and speed in benchmarks as well as the price-performance ratio.

          AMD CPUs

          AMD manufactures its current Ryzen 5000 processors with Zen 3 CPU cores in a modern 7nm process. The production takes place at the contract manufacturer TSMC. The new AMD Ryzen processors are currently the fastest desktop processors.

          With the internal graphics unit (iGPU) of the processors, Intel is now back on par with AMD with the new Intel Xe graphics, which in the current Cezanne APUs (Ryzen 5000G) still use the older AMD RDNA architecture.

          Only the next APUs from AMD (code name Van Gogh) will be based on the new RDNA2 architecture. This is already being used in the new graphics cards and also the XBox Series S / X and Playstation 5 game consoles.

          Intel CPUs

          Intel's new CPU architecture is used in the desktop processors (Core i 3/5/7/9) of the 11th generation ("Rocket Lake"). Intel was able to significantly increase the raw performance per cycle. It is just behind AMD's current Ryzen 5000 processors with Zen 3 cores.

          The "Tiger Lake" mobile processors use the same CPU architecture, but are already manufactured in 10 nm, while the desktop processors are still manufactured in 14 nm. They are fast and efficient and roughly on par with the current AMD "Cezanne" mobile processors (Ryzen 5000).

          In the new processors, Intel relies on the Intel Xe graphics, which have been promising a significant performance boost again since years of standstill.
