For a while there Toms Hardware had posted their price/performance curves.

These were a long way from perfect (the "curves" seemed kinda useless actually) but the relative performance rankings were pretty useful

Anybody still have links to these charts..? I can't seem to find them anymore....?

Thanks!

There is a price performance option in the choose benchmark combo bar. But as for the other chart I can't seem to find it either AMD must have been beefed that they weren't the "best bang for your buck" anymore.

I wondered too if AMD got the chart pulled somehow.

You look at an $800 FX getting beat by a sub $400 E6600 and you have to think AMD was a bit peeved.

That being said, in the $200-$300 cpu range, where I expect most chips are actually sold (actually most chips are sub $100, so I guess I should say where the majority of "profitable chips" are sold) - AMD still did fairly well.

Oh well.. another service to help "the little guy" crushed by big business :)
