An assistant to help you compare CPU's and develop a more informed future state environment

Create CPU Recommendations

Source CPU
# of physical CPU sockets from Source
# of virtual CPU cores from Source
Min # of Sockets in new environment
Max # of Sockets in new environment
Only include these CPU Editions

Max vCPU:pCPU ratio:1
Add % horsepower for growth%
Current average CPU usage%
Minimum CPU FrequencyGHz
Calculate results based onSPECint_rate
Sort CPU Recommendation by

PS - 0 disables fields with number options

Manually Compare two CPUs

Source CPU
Destination CPU
# of physical CPU sockets from Source
# of virtual CPU cores from Source
# of physical CPU sockets at Destination

Last update: Aug 14 2018

Recent Changelog:
Added prices for ivy bridge and fixed a few typos
Added minimum CPU frequency, added a few more pointers on manual compare, added nehalems
Added ability to set current environment's average CPU usage, added old cpu comparison tool back in, add ability to filter on edition (platinum, gold, silver, bronze), added ability to set desired growth %,
Added ability to set min sockets, max sockets, and vCPU:pCPU ratio
Changed tool to recommend CPUs based on specintrate instead of manually trying to figure it out. If you want the old tool an archived version is available here but I do plan to add a manual comparison feature back in eventually
Added ability to show all CPUs
Added Intel's MSRP and price per specint_rate for Skylakes
