I have quite a few questions of the type of finding average access times in CPU pipelines under various conditions, finding access times of caches and the like. Would Super User be the site to ask these? Or some other site?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
If you want to find ready-made benchmarks to run on your PC, that's computer usage: ask on Super User. If it's not a PC but an iPhone, ask on Ask Different. If it's an Android phone, ask on Android. If the computer is running a unix variant, ask on Unix & Linux.
If you're want to know how to write benchmarks to measure characteristics of a chip, that's programming: ask on Stack Overflow.
If you want to understand the theoretical concepts behind hardware design or compilation techniques, that's computer science: ask on Computer Science.
While it is quite theoretical/leaning towards computer science, I would post it on http://electronics.stackexchange.com. They are not discussing resistors only there ;)
