Good grief...our desktop (which is fairly recent -- i5-3470) scores 6562 with Passmark.

Not even. These are Haswell-E (22nm) chips I'm looking at. The Skylakes aren't out in the LGA 2011 package yet, and are still limited to 4 cores + hyperthread, so they barely crack 10000.

It's a good point, though. Wait until the next-gen Skylake, when they go 6 core in the new socket. That'll push the score up into 13k territory and get you access to silly amounts of DDR4 memory, but without the huge TDP of the Haswell.

TDP is one of the things I actually care about, EFFICIENCY

Actually, I'm kind of surprised that the Broadwell (which is the 14nm die-shrink of the Haswell) isn't available in a 6 or 8 core version of the i7 variant. That would really be the chip to have today, since the Skylake doesn't bring much to the table aside from the integrated GPU, which I couldn't care less about. It's got the TDP of a Skylake, with the per-core performance of a Haswell.


Remember back when there was only one version of every major CPU family? You want a 286? Great, what clock speed? Here it is. What socket does it fit in? The rectangular one.

Even the 386s and 486s didn't differ much between the SX and DX variants aside from the FPU and the bus width, so far as I can remember. At least in the desktop versions.

These days, processor names are damn near meaningless. The name "i7" covers everything from a potato to the fastest x86 processors available at any price.
