It's really great to have it back and especially in such an improved way and with such a nice scene! Thanks! 8)

But i think the list would be better to read if it would be organized in a different way. I don't know if i'm the only one thinking so, but for me the most important information now is at the end of the row and the most unimportant on the left side...

I think the readability could be improved if the most relevant entries (Processor, Speed, Time, Benchmark) would be placed side by side. And it would be clearer if there would be a clock speed entry next to the processor model if the speed differs from the stock speed.


Maybe like this:

Yes, very useful to make more qualified hardware purchase decisions. Interesting how ~1500 € i7-3930K and ~900 € i7-2600K PC DIY-builds fare compared with the overpriced Apple hardware :)

Hey, thanks again for the feedback.

We've changed the columns order so now is more readable. We also added a position column (#), it's more motivating.

Regarding the speed colum you propose, what do you mean? processor speed or process speed?

As Juan has pointed out, once we've got more benchwells (maybe in a month or so), we'll try to make it more dynamic and add more stats.

oh... that was quick! 8) :D

much better now! (at least for me... i don't know about the others ;) )

yes, the position number is good (i think you could even put this on the left side in the first column - i don't think this would disturb the readability and would be more logical)

With speed i meant a column for the clock speed or frequency of the processor when the actual speed differs from the nominal or stock speed displayed in the processor model field.
So there should be only an entry if the processor is overclocked. Then you would see directly that it is overclocked. As it is now you have to click the info symbol to see if a cpu is oced (and for some entries this info isn't even available or wrong)

Is it possible to read out the clock speed (and the stock speed) automatically to avoid wrong entries? It looks like there are already entries where the system must be oced and it is not mentioned in the info.

Is it possible to get rid of the "R" and "TM" in the processor field? Or change the format to the trademark symbols. And i don't think the word "CPU" is necessary in the processor field. It would be clearer without it.

Hi,
First post here.
The sheet needs to have Cores and Threads instead of Cores only… Imho

...

It would be useful to make sure, as numerobis suggested, that the use of overclocking, multiple processors, motherboards and memory use is somehow taken into account and listed?

ps: that good 'ol i7-2600K is still up for it, and you got ok graphics for operating the PC to boot...

Yep, that's the point why I think the Benchmark list/information display needs some tweaking...

Hi, thanks a lot for your comments.

We will try to improve the table as much as possible in the future, adding more fields, providing other ways of displaying the info such as graphics, comparatives of selected columns, average results for specific cpus, etc take into account that grabbing hardware info is not an easy thing, APIs used for that purposes rely heavily on assembly instructions and on things that are very sensitive to the OS version, etc. Namely functions for finding out the clock speed or the memory type can work or not depending on the service pack installed, or maybe are not available in other OSs. That is why we decided starting with something generic that works in pretty much all the systems and adding more functionality later.
