          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.

          First Geekbench 5 benchmark of the Intel Core i7-13700K
          Posted by Stefan on 2022-07-26
          Last week we already reported on the new Intel Core i7-13700K processor from Intel, which is expected in autumn 2022. With 8+8 CPU cores (24 threads), the Intel Core i7-13700K should have the same configuration as last year's Intel Core i9-12900K. With this, Intel wants to finally clear AMD's lead in multi-core performance, which has existed for several years.
          Intel Core i7-13700K could debut with 16 cores and 24 threads
          Posted by Stefan on 2022-07-20
          According to an internal Intel slide published at the end of last year, the Intel Core i7-13700K could have 8+8, i.e. 16 CPU cores that provide 24 threads. The interesting thing about the slide is that it was recently confirmed by newer leaks of the Intel Core i9-13900K and the Intel Core i5-13600K as the number of cores and also the size of the cache matches with recently published CPU-Z screenshots of alleged development models.
          AMD Ryzen 5 5500 - The CPU with the best price-performance ratio
          Posted by Stefan on 2022-07-18
          The AMD Ryzen 5 5500 (6C 12T) is currently enjoying great popularity and is currently one of the best-selling processors for AMD's Socket AM4 platform.

          But why is the AMD Ryzen 5 5500 so cheap and what disadvantages does the buyer have to accept? We clarify that in this article. But first we have to dive a little into the technology of the current Zen 3 processors in order to understand what kind of exotic cpu AMD has actually created with the AMD Ryzen 5 5500.


          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.
