CPU Grade

CPU Grade

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.

The specifications are organized into ten separate categories that can be shown or hidden individually, or collectively (JavaScript required). This is to aid with legibility so you can find exactly what you're looking for, as the website is very informative.

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.

Users can request a missing processor to be added into the database using social media (Facebook or Twitter), or via the contact form found on 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.

Hardware Compatibility

ProcessorNo strict requirement
System Memory (RAM)No strict requirement
Resolution240 × 320 — 3840 × 2160 pixels (entire website)
640 × 360 — 3840 × 2160 pixels (processor comparison feature)
GraphicsNo strict requirement
Other HardwareAn update in the future, adding a processor comparison feature, will require a display resolution of at least 640 × 360 pixels. For smartphones, this equates to qHD devices (quarter HD), with a display resolution of 960 × 540 pixels and a viewport ratio of 1.5. The rest of the website isn't affected by this update.
