    To compare AMD vs Intel or just different processors in general ... I look up the Processor's CPU Mark.

    (1) Is that a good way to compare overall ?

    (2) Forinstance, if I have 2 computers with windows 10, 8 Gigs of identical RAM, same Hard drive, same Graphics card, if one has a CPU Mark of 9000, and another with 4500, would I notice a difference ? (Scenario: I have 20 browser windows Open, 10 windows explorer, 15 MS Word documents, and a few Excel sheets open ?

    Yes. If the CPU Mark difference as large as 4500 (twice), you ought to notice a large difference under a fair workload.

    A better, more relatable way to compare CPUs would be to head over to anandtech.com
    Why?
