Tom's Hardware 2010 Charts 出爐了 ... rts-2010,11343.html

During the course of 2010, we've updated our Charts section several times to bring existing categories up to date and add a number of others. Check out the CPUs, coolers, graphics cards, USB thumb drives, SSDs, hard drives, and NAS appliances we've added.

While our North American team is busy writing reviews of the latest CPUs, graphics cards, and motherboards, Tom’s Hardware’s lab in Germany keeps a constant stream of components on its test beds for the express purpose of updating our Charts section.

We’ve just completed an overhaul of several Charts pages, which you can use to not only compare the performance of a wide range of parts, but also temperatures, noise, and power consumption.


To begin, our CPU Charts have been updated for 2010. New in this latest version are:

    AMD Athlon II X2 260u
    AMD Phenom II X6 1035T
    AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
    AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
    Core i3-530
    Intel Core i5-750S
    Intel Core i7-930
    Intel Core i7-960
    Intel Core i7-970
    Intel Core i7-980X

You’ll find the results of our performance testing (along with a performance index) in our 2010 Desktop CPU Charts. All told, there are 33 processors from AMD and 44 from Intel represented here.

CPU Coolers

Though our CPU Cooler charts are not brand new, they haven’t been mentioned in a Charts update yet, so here you go. Fourteen different vendors are represented, including:

    3R System
    Cooler Master

The Cooler Chart is a work in progress, and we’ve slowly been adding models each month. For the most current iteration of what we have online, check out CPU Cooler Charts for 2010.

Graphics Cards

The Gaming Graphics Cards Charts were recently updated for Q3’10, and you’ll now find the complete range of Radeon HD 5000-series cards, and a couple of different models of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 460. In addition, we’ve included CrossFire and SLI results for the configurations where we had hardware on-hand to enable those multi-GPU technologies.

Note also that all of these cards (many of which were tested previously) have been re-tested using a new, updated benchmark suite that includes Aliens vs. Predator, Avatar, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Dragon Age: Origins, Left 4 Dead 2, and Supreme Commander 2.

    Radeon HD 5970
    Radeon HD 5870
    Radeon HD 5850
    Radeon HD 5830
    Radeon HD 5770
    Radeon HD 5750
    Radeon HD 5670
    Radeon HD 5570
    Radeon HD 5550
    Radeon HD 4890
    Radeon HD 4870
    Radeon HD 4850
    Radeon HD 4830
    Radeon HD 4770
    Radeon HD 4670
    Radeon HD 3870
    GeForce GTX 460
    GeForce GTX 295
    GeForce GTX 285
    GeForce GTX 280
    GeForce GTX 275
    GeForce GTX 260
    GeForce GTS 250
    GeForce GT 240
    GeForce 9800 GX2
    GeForce 9800 GTX+
    GeForce 9800 GT

The GTX 480, 470, and 465 are currently missing, and we’re looking to get those added/updated ASAP.

You’ll find the results of our performance testing for these cards, plus SLI and CrossFire configurations, in our 2010 Gaming Graphics Charts (High Quality).

USB Thumb Drives

We’ve also added USB Thumb Drive Charts, which currently include 11 different products based on USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. Included, you’ll find:

    Super Talent RAIDDrive USB 3.0
    Corsair Voyager GTR
    Silicon Power LuxMini 920
    Kingston DataTraveler 410
    Kingston DataTraveler 160
    Kingston DataTraveler 102
    Patriot Xporter XT Boost
    Patriot Xporter Razzo
    LaCie itsaKey
    LaCie iamaKey
    Transcend JetFlash 600

You’ll find the results of our performance testing in our USB Thumb Drive Charts.

Enterprise Hard Drives

Brand new for 2010 are our Enterprise Hard Drive Charts. All of the results in this one are new, and it’s populated by 25 products from Seagate, Hitachi, Toshiba, and Fujitsu. The product families represented include:

    Seagate Savvio
    Seagate Cheetah
    Seagate Cheetah NS.2
    Seagate Constellation
    Seagate Constellation ES
    Hitachi Ultrastar
    Toshiba MBFxxxxRC
    Fujitsu MBxx RC-Series

In addition to performance metrics, you’ll find drive temperature statistics, along with power consumption figures. Those results are all available in our Enterprise Hard Drive Charts 2010.


Our third generation of SSD Charts includes 17 different products, representing flash controllers from several vendors. You can expect to find the following drives (and a number of variants) compared in fresh and used states employing synthetic tests, real-world metrics, power measurements, efficiency analysis, and a performance index:

    Crucial M225
    Crucial RealSSD C300
    G.Skill Phoenix
    Intel X25-M G2
    Intel X25-V
    OCZ Vertex
    Toshiba HG2
    Western Digital SiliconEdge Blue

For more on the results of our SSD testing, please check out the SSD Charts for 2010.

USB 3.0 Hard Drives

Finally, we’ve indexed the performance of several external USB 3.0 drives. The results currently include eight different drive-based enclosures capable of shattering the performance bottlenecks previously imposed by USB 2.0-class hardware.

    A-Data Nobility
    Buffalo HD-PE500U3
    PQI H566
    Samsung Story Station 3.0
    Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk
    Transcend StoreJet 25M3
    Western Digital My Book 3.0

We tested these drives using h2benchw, IOmeter, and a handful of file transfers. If you’re in the market for USB 3.0-based storage, check out our USB 3.0 Hard Disk Charts.


Processors, graphics cards, and SSDs are of course some of the most popular components folks look up on Tom’s Hardware. However, we also have a fairly extensive storage testing facility in Germany that runs through a lot of network-attached gear. We have 134 different configurations (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 10) tested in healthy and degraded states from the following vendors:

    Buffalo (TeraStation)
    Intel (SS4200-E)
    Iomega (StorCenter)
    LaCie (5big)
    Maxtor (Shared Storage)
    Western Digital (MyBook)

PS:我好少見人玩480,470同5970哩D- -


it'd be nice to have a read on the coming techs, e.g. 6xxx series graphics, sandy bridge, cpu/graphic on same die etc
