The fastest computers and the fastest computers are not always the same, according to a new report by the TSP Fund Performance Plus, which tracks the performance of high-performance computers.
The report, which was prepared by the consultancy for a conference called “Performance in the Information Age,” showed that the average performance of a PC over the past three years has been around 30% faster than a laptop.
“A desktop computer can be the best in its class for the same amount of power, but it will be much more efficient,” said TSP CEO and co-founder Tim Southey.
“The best laptops will be able to do more with less power, and they’ll have a better battery life.”
The TSP report says that the latest machines, which are designed for productivity, include Intel’s Core i5, i7, and i9 processors, and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 960 graphics.
Those models run at a similar price point, with the best models costing as much as $5,000, while the priciest models start at about $10,000.
Intel’s top models are available at $6,000 and $8,000; the top-of-the-line GTX 960 starts at $3,999.
The new report also shows that the new models are outperforming PCs in most of the categories, and the same is true of most notebooks.
The computer makers are also seeing a steady rise in the cost of the components they use, which can result in a price drop if consumers choose to use the laptop for a while.
TSP has compiled a list of the top 10 most expensive computers for the past 3 years, including the latest Intel Core i7-7700K model, the top model from Dell.
Tsp’s list of top 10 computers in 3 years: The most expensive PC in the world The most valuable computer in the history of humanity The most profitable computer in history The most efficient computer in existence The most innovative computer ever The most technologically advanced computer ever TSP’s report says, however, that these trends are not just happening at the consumer end.
“There is an expectation for the computer to be more powerful than it actually is, and so the manufacturers are starting to see some of that,” Southeys said.
“And when they’re starting to do that, they are also starting to start to see the power consumption drop, and that’s what you see on the TSM report.”
The report also found that most consumer PCs are still running at lower power than they were three years ago, and this is partly due to the shift to the use of CPUs with more cores than processors.
That means that the majority of the current PCs are not using as much power as they once did, which means the performance benefits are being missed.
The TSM Report, “Performance of the Latest Computers,” shows that “the top three fastest PCs in the TSS world are all still running laptops,” Soutsheys added.
That suggests that the PC market may not be quite as saturated as previously thought.
“We’ve been saying that PCs are going to be in a much lower power-to-capacity ratio than they used to be, and I think that’s really starting to happen, and people are beginning to realize that,” said Southes.
“It’s a great opportunity for the consumer to get a better laptop for less money, but in the same time, you can see that the performance gains aren’t as great as they were when the laptop was being built.”
Intel and Dell declined to comment for this story.
But TSP and Dell did not dispute the report.
They also did not deny that PCs have surpassed laptops in performance, or that the market is not quite saturated yet.
“They are two of the fastest growing segments, and there’s no question that the consumer is going to continue to get more efficient with every new model,” said Steve J. Karp, chief technology officer at TSP.
The PC market is already saturated, he added, and TSP is excited about the potential of the future.
“I think it’s really important that the industry continue to look at where the best performance comes from and how to make the best use of the performance,” said Karp.
