Compare Processors

A large number of people have been looking for comparing the processors. This site has been started with the aim of helping readers know about the processors, comparison of processors and graphics. We will also help you understand differences between the architectures and graphics. We have included both the benchmarks as well as the architectural differences in the processors and graphics.

You may like to familiarize yourself with the following key concepts that will help you understand the terms required when making comparison.

1. TDP Rating – A desktop has a higher TDP Rating, a short form of Thermal Dissipation Power. TDP rating refers to the amount of the power that must be removed by the cooling system from the processors. Notebooks have intermediate TDP rating – in the range of 45 Watts to 25 Watts. Recent trends has been the design of ultra notebooks or thin and light notebooks. These require processors with TDP rating of 18 Watts or lower. You may like to read more about TDP Rating.

2. Integrate Graphics – A system may come with a separate card ( in desktops) or a separate dedicated chip ( in notebooks) to process graphics data to be displayed on screen. Alternatively, as the recent trend in processors dictate – the processor itself may integrate the functions of the graphics unit. The integrated graphics has become more important during last 2 years of processor design.

3. Integrated Memory Controller – A processor having integrated memory controller communicates with the memory directly. It has been a while since Integrated memory controller has established itself matured technology.
