Comparison of new / old stationary / portable processors


Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I have a bit of a general question - is there any A site where you can compare processor performance Of new / old desktops / laptops?

(I understand, performance depends on the specific use, so I will refer to some "average" or "general" use or something like that).

 

I'm afraid it's time to replace the desktop computer, and before buying a computer I want to check out the possibility of using Old in the stationary place, compared to the possibility of buying a new computer.

I want to know what improvement can be expected, and of course make sure I do not replace it with something that will limit me.

Specifically, I would be happy to compare:

i5 760 (old stationary)

i5 6200U (portable a few years old)

i7 7920HQ (Mobile, Per)

Current generation processor (maybe i3 or i5 or any)

 

Thank you in advance for helpers

For basic office use you will not feel a significant difference between an aging i5-6200u and the latest word in the market. 

Of course, you should have enough memory and Agile. 

When the requirements go up a bit then the 4 cores of the 7920 will surely cover the gap.

What powerful processors need is this:

Professional work such as professional office work like very large PDFs or several tens of gigabytes of email accounts, audio / film editing / graphics editing.

Games.

Games + streaming.

 

Of course modern processors give the ability to perform occasional "heavy" tasks more easily. Editing a movie once a year, filtering Once a year, etc.) 

 

Content in 4k can be a problem for 6200u depending on the circumstances.

Thanks for the comments.

 

In basic office use would I feel a difference between the old desktop (i5 760) and a new computer / one of the laptops?

So basically all the alternatives are better than the old desktop?

Streaming - is it in the context of games, or streaming movies?

 

I compared in PASSMARK as Yehudaa suggested, but I am not closed on the results (comparison attached):

I have not found an explanation for what each index says, and I would be happy to explain (I guess the relevant ones are: Single Thread Rating, Cross-Platform Rating, CPU Mark).

Are the results linear? For example in performance Single, the difference between the i5 desktops is a little more than 2 times, even though about 10 years have passed. I was expecting a much bigger difference ...

(Where is Moore's Law reflected? Isn't there some measure that was supposed to show that the new processor is 30 times more powerful?)

I added both i3 and i5 from the current generation (I did not know what the relevant Ryzen is) - it seems that the i3 is quite similar to the mobile i7 from 3 generations back - does that make sense? In addition, the difference in score between i5 and i3 is almost 2 times, although performance Individually very similar - where does the difference come from? (Number of cores? In what use will the difference between 4 and 6 cores be felt at all?)

Yes because this processor is 11 years old. It has been a decade since then. What do you expect?

Yes.

Yes the number of cores. For office use you can settle for 4.

Depends on what you do on the computer.

Yes, the 760 is old and the system around it is already lazy.

Streaming - is it in the context of games, or streaming movies?  Games. Load of game + load of coding

 

I compared in PASSMARK as Yehudaa suggested, but I am not closed on the results (comparison attached): Not my favorite comparison base, but gives a pretty accurate picture.

Windows can be installed on Mac-based computers With bootcamp, it works great.

Also computers , Mainly pro 15 keep their value very nice, in as much as you can sell such a computer you can buy a great new desktop computer. (Sounds like he's thrown in the closet)
