You're welcome. What you're trying to do is a tall order, but quite valuable. I hope the endeavor goes well for you (and for us users out here in Internetland)

Thanks for the feedback Duane (and to you as well for posting about our launch Clive), this is exactly the type of info. that will be helpful for us as we go from launch to tweaking the site for improvements. I agree that as it is right now, in certain areas it can be unclear what each benchmark measures, so in the future we're looking at adding mouseover info. to help clarify what the data represents and do a better job of guiding the user through the data. We've also had some demand for adding GPUs in the future, so that's something that we're considering, although we want to make sure that we really nail CPUs before expanding further. Thanks again for checking us out!

I like the concept of that site. The last few times I've built a PC have involved a fair amount of searching and benchmarking. The site I typically use (cpubenchmark.net) doesn't go into a lot of detail, but lists a large number of CPUs sorted by performance. It also rates GPUs. It looks like CPUBoss hase more detail, but at the moment, I can't say that it's all that well organized. It looks like too much data without enough explanation as to what it all means. Their Facebook page lists their mission as: "Our mission is to make it easier to find and compare the best processors on the market using rich aggregated data and a slick UI." I would have to say that the slick UI gets in the way of clarity right now. It's a good start, but I'd suggest that they make their definitions and easier to find and the functionality better labeled. They use a lot of cool icons, but the meaning of those icons is not as obvious to me as it is to them. Clear it up and I could see this as a valuable resource.
