I don’t blame people for not keeping on top of video card or CPU models; it can get mad confusing. How is it that a GeForce 8800 GT more powerful than a GeForce 9400 GT? CPU naming conventions have gotten better, but not by much. This is why I am welcoming Intel’s new five star rating system which essentially groups their own processors into five distinct categories.
5/5 rated processors will have your Core i7’s and other high end multi-core solutions while the Celerons and Pentiums line of processors occupy the lower segments of the new scale. Makes sense and is relatively easy to comprehend once you see the groupings chart.
Their new processor badges aren’t too shabby either.
