Which CPUs crush rendering in Blender?

Since the recent update to the Blender Open Data project was announced, I got curious and decided to dig into the data to see what CPUs perform the best with cycles rendering, this article presents insights on the fastest CPUs you can buy right now and provides a chart of over 100 CPUs and how they stack up against the Barber Shop interior benchmark, all thanks to data from the Blender benchmarks, hope you enjoy the article and comments, corrections and criticism welcome :D

I'm a software engineer, I've worked on numerous technologies over the past 10 years. I started out working on full motion flight simulators and then worked with embedded systems. I now work on building an add-on to support rendering using multiple computers over internet/local networks. I started using blender in 2009 and have done small projects with it since then, however, crowd render, our network rendering add-on is by far the biggest adventure with Blender to date.
