    It's now done and done.

    Thank you!

    Original post:

    Hey all!

    It's time we made a new CPU poll. I decided to make a thread about it first to make sure I don't forget stuff. Note that I've made no distintcion between mobile and desktop chips (and left out server chips entirely because I know nothing about them). Below are the planned choices (multichoice of course):

    Intel

    • Vintage (Pentium MMX and backwards)
      P6 Legacy (Pentium Pro - Pentium III, includes Pentium/Celeron M)
      Netburst
      Intel 64 Netburst
      Intel Core
      Core 2 Duo
      Core 2 Quad
      Core 2 Extreme
      Atom Single Core
      Atom Dual Core
      Nehalem Pentium
      Nehalem Core i3
      Nehalem Core i5
      Nehalem Core i7
      Nehalem Core i7 Extreme
      Sandy Bridge Celeron
      Sandy Bridge Pentium
      Sandy Bridge Core i3
      Sandy Bridge Core i5
      Sandy Bridge Core i5 S
      Sandy Bridge Core i5 K
      Sandy Bridge Core i7
      Sandy Bridge Core i7 S
      Sandy Bridge Core i7 K
      Sandy Bridge Core i7 Extreme
      Ivy Bridge Pentium
      Ivy Bridge Core i3
      Ivy Bridge Core i5
      Ivy Bridge Core i5 S
      Ivy Bridge Core i5 K
      Ivy Bridge Core i7
      Ivy Bridge Core i7 S
      Ivy Bridge Core i7 K
      Ivy Bridge Core i7 Extreme

    AMD


    • Legacy (K6 and backwards)
      K7 - Athlon XP/MP, Duron, Sempron
      K8 - Athlon 64/FX, Sempron, Athlon 64 X2, Turion 64
      Athlon X2
      Phenom
      Phenom II
      Phenom II X6
      Athlon II
      Bulldozer FX-8xxx
      Bulldozer FX-6xxx
      Bulldozer FX-4xxx
      Piledriver FX-8xxx
      Piledriver FX-6xxx
      Piledriver FX-4xxx
      Brazos (AMD E, G, C, Z)
      Llano A4
      Llano A6
      Llano A8
      Brazos-T (also AMD Z)
      Trinity A4
      Trinity A6
      Trinity A8
      Trinity A10

    And somewhere on the end I'll add two or three VIA CPU's.

    Opinions, corrections? It feels like I made a mess of the AMD side of things, but they are MUCH more confusing than Intel imo.

    So, as said I'd appreciate comments before I make it "live".

    This is not the actual vote, it's just a post asking for suggestions and improvements. I hate doing these big polls only to realize I've forgotten something important.

    oh sorry about that, already 2:36am here hehehe didn't read it properly,

    well those choices above are great, people should also post a pic of their (even processor will do) as also saying they use this or that or at least vote for the cpu they had most good memories with ^_^

    suggestion: allow people to make upto 3 choices.... Because who here at TPU doesnt have at least 3-6 PCs/Laptops in their possession? :p
     
    Norton and 3870x2 say thanks.

    Good point. I've had something on the order of 10-15 different Intel CPU's, not even counting Cyrix.

    How about the P4 EE ?

    Maybe. Probably.

    Anyway, I was thinking about asking people to vote what CPU's they actually run now. Counting everything one own or have owned is pretty useless imo.

    Adding lga 2011 might be good as well.

    I think the biggest concern is how granular you'd want the poll to be. Do the recent processors need to be so finely divided?

    With Intel's socket-whoring, sorting by sockets for the later processors might work...

    LGA 2011 (CPU A, CPU B, etc.)
    LGA 1155 (CPU A, CPU B, etc.)
    LGA 1156 (CPU A, CPU B, etc.)

    things should be like what people owned right now (doesn't count what relatives own)

    This.

    I have a T7500, an i7 2670M, and an Pii 945. These are just the ones actively in use.

    Also, no VIA? Might as well include all 3 major x86 players! :D

    Sockets aren't interesting, CPU's are. I chose the different CPU's by how important I think they are. K and extreme CPU's should be in classes of their own imo.

    As I said in the OP, I know nothing about them. I could include just "Opteron" and "Xeon", but that feels a bit unfair when I was so detailed about the other CPU's...

    Also in the OP, they will be included. Thinking "Single Core" and "Dual core". As with the Atoms that is a bit unfair, but it'll work imo.


    So, should I just put "Xeon" and "Opteron" there as two choices, or should I go research and be more specific or should someone else with knowledge put together a nice list for me?

    I believe you should be general and use Opteron and Xeon. There are just too many models/generations in the server realm and the list would become too convoluted.

    Could have an "Other" option to fit in for the odd stuff. Wouldn't need a separate list for VIA/etc. Heck, might be folks like me who still use old PPC 7447s from time to time. Although I'm probably the last hold out by now.

    I'd avoid sockets too. Just focus on how you are doing it now.

    IMO you can remove the K and S ones , the K one are just the same as the non K one , just with an open multiplier , and the S ones just use lower clock's .

    Another thing , i would change the "i7 Extreme" to Sandy bridge Extreme as there is the 3930K which is a SB-E CPU but isn't branded as extreme ..

    K is for overclocking which is a big difference. I chose S because it'd be interesting to see how popular the "energy saving" models are.

    Thanks for your input people, I'll make the vote now!

    Its simple...

    Every few years we have a 'what CPU have you got' vote.

    Just to see what the folks here at TPU are running. Its a good way to find out which manufacturer is getting our hard earned monies

    That means I don't get counted. :ohwell: I agree with not categorizing them individually because there are so many models and not that many of us using them, but as said above maybe you can create "Intel Xeon" and "AMD Opteron" categories that will count us.
