You want to purchase a new system but need to decide which CPU (processor) best fits your needs. Using the Web, research several different CPU benchmarking reports. Compare specifications for the CPUs, including number of cores, clock speed, cache size, front side bus transfer rates, and cost. Share the information from at least three different CPUs with your classmates (summarize the information, do not copy and paste), then identify the CPU you would choose and explain why. Be sure to try to find benchmarking reports that simulate the types of programs you would be using most often. Remember to provide citations for your research.
Then, review some of your classmatesâ€™ choices. Based on their reasons for choosing their specific computer, do you agree with their choice? Why or why not? Is there anything additional that you think they should consider in their assessment?
