CPU Grade is the newest and most streamlined method of obtaining the technical specifications of central processors from a variety of vendors, under many platforms.
Its elegant, simplistic approach to layout and design means that information is readily available, no matter what device you're using. It's also designed to be 100% user-friendly, meaning even the least experienced users can find what they're looking for. The glossary will also help these users understand the terminologies, technologies and features found throughout the website.
Processors are graded based on performance, compute power, efficiency, electrical requirements and integrated graphics. Each processor is graded respective to three separate scenarios — against the entire market segment (consumer, mobile or server), against the same processor family on the same platform, and lastly, against the same processor family, inclusive of all platforms.
A commenting system (Disqus) has been added to each specification page, allowing users to interact with the website.
Intel and AMD desktop and laptop processors are the highest priority while the website is starting up, and more vendors and platforms will be added as it progresses. Server processors are expected to be added last.
