Hi all,

I'm a newbie and trying to build my very first PC :wahoo:  . I'm looking for a detailed benchmark similar to the one on tomshardware http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/desktop-cpu-charts-2....

I read that you should choose parts based on your need
and I want to build a PC that focus on video/audio encoding, rendering, home theater, programming but not gaming.

I like the ones on tomshardware but it seems outdated.

I found this one http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html#, but it has only 1 score.

Does anyone know where can I find the one similar to tomshardware but up-to-date :)  ?


Thanks,

anandtechs bench is one source, but how much it updates is moderately small. you just have to search each sites testing on the chips before you make the purchase. i wouldn't think all sites would keep builds and keep retesting them over and over. most tend to stick only to current gen and newly fresh testing.

^I would point out the same article but then he specifically said "not for gaming..."

@canhcutvl, at the end of the day, the choice of the CPU still relies on your budget unless you say it is not a factor. The higher the budget, the better processor you can get... it looks like for your application, the number of cores matter...

Should also be fine for non gaming too. Really for non gaming I would still buy a Sandy bridge than Bulldozer (not Phenom II x6 though, but they are mostly out of stock).
