Tom's Hardware Wants Your Help Choosing CPU Tests For 2011

Tom's Hardware wants you, well not literally, but they do want your input as to which tests you'd like to see featured in their updated CPU charts for 2011. That's right if there is a new benchmark, game application or something else out there you'd like to see featured on the new CPU test charts for 2011 now is your chance to tell them and they might just listen!

Here’s the current list of test they'll be featuring:
  • Apple iTunes 10.0.1
  • TMPG 4.7 with DivX 6.9.2 and Xvid 1.2.2
  • MainConcept Reference 2.0
  • HandBrake 0.9.4
  • Autodesk 3ds Max 2010
  • WinRAR 3.92
  • 7-Zip 4.65
  • Adobe Photoshop CS5
  • AVG Anti-Virus 11.0
  • 3DMark Vantage
  • PCMark Vantage
  • SiSoftware Sandra 2010
  • Metro 2033
  • Just Cause 2
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • DiRT 2
Two things to keep in mind: Tom's would prefer to use free/trial/open source software, making reproducibility an option for as many of our readers as possible and the apps they are going to be willing to use will likely be the ones most applicable to the largest number of readers out there. So don't go all crazy suggesting some lame duck software no one has ever heard of or some totally niche test that only the geekiest of geeks would be willing to try. The have said there 'may' be room for a handful of more fringe tests but I'm sure that doesn't included something totally out there!
