but if, if, but and what about the 1%? And ....
Stop the bs pls. Ppl that want to play with lag can just ignore it.
I suggested this earlier (to display CPU model) and just as now, the excuses not to do it are ridiculous.
Very simple example; ALL the Intel -U CPU's will throttle. That's simply a given because at full boost (that they use for the benchmark) can only be sustained a very short time before power delivery and heat become a problem. For ppl using laptops where the biggest task is opening a 100 page PDF this is excellent and manufacturers can skimp down on power circuits, cooling and the consumer gets a cheaper, lighter and thinner laptop. Not suited for FAF though.
Bigger games in FAF are ruined by ppl with shitty throttling systems. There should be something in place that would override the shown cpu score for these players. That includes the ppl that turn on their software streaming after running the bench, like lilSidlil.

Only if you have all the CPU models memorized. And even then, are you sure every laptop CPU is a distinct model from a tower? And even then, who is to say that every laptop CPU can't play every game?
Your argument boils down to "perfection is not easily achieved, so we should not improve".

This was the last issue on github about cpu benchmark:
Please read my comment:
This could explain why a CPU benchmark is useless in any cases
We should test memory speed.
The first link; hilarious. A Q6600 user still living in about 2006...
The second link; false. CPU speed is still an issue. Thermal throttling is all over the place. Also ppl load up their CPU with things like VLC, Youtube, streaming. The existence of "fast i7's" does not mean everyone has one.
Also; the older i7's are simply too slow anyway. The cheapest current-gen Celeron (the G5900) is faster than the i7-920 for example. 2nd gen i5 is already faster than 1st gen i7.
