    [H]ardOCP have published an article which aims to chart the five best CPUs of all time, of course this isn't about current raw performance, it's about their impact on the market at the time:

    What are you thoughts? Did you have any of the processors on this list?

    Over the year I owned all but the i7. The earlier chipsets were not bought new but passed down to me via other users as they upgraded, however it was a hugh learning curve for me through the years

    Quite a nice selection to be passed on there @TriplexDread :).

    From memory, I think my CPU journey went 8086 > 286 > P120 > P200MMX > Celeron 366 > Athlon (can't remember model) > Pentium IV > i5-3570k

    The 8086/286 were very old by the time I had them in the 90s. I still have very fond memories of them, and I've tried to track down similar systems on e-bay so I can have another go :D. I'm sure I've missed a few CPUs in that trail, either as they weren't a main PC or I have just forgotten.

    Honourable mention for the Q6600 and 920 D0, both great chip of the time, the 920 was a beast when overclocked. :)

    Ah now I remember, the CPU I had between the P4 and 3570K was the Q6600 :lol:. I've still got it somewhere!

    They missed one ... Am486 DX-2 66 :D

    I remember them all, even the notorious Cyrix.
