Predicate Proposal - CPU

Field Name: CPU

Type of value: entity

Number of values accepted: multiple

Tooltip description: Central processing unit found within the subject item

Full description: Central processing unit (CPU), principal part of any digital computer system, generally composed of the main memory, control unit, and arithmetic-logic unit. It constitutes the physical heart of the entire computer system; to it is linked various peripheral equipment, including input/output devices and auxiliary storage units. In modern computers, the CPU is contained on an integrated circuit chip called a microprocessor.

Examples of proper use:

Examples of improper use:

Usage in other schemas:

Constraints: Only applies when Subject has the “Is a” value “Product”

What is the value of this information for the user?

We can find all the products that were developed on these CPU.

And what will this knowledge give to anyone?

Just a reminder (about the predicate).

To build on @AVADAKEDAVRA 's question, how practically do see it being used? We don’t have a lot of detailed entities for different computer models right now e.g. the Dell XPS line is one of the most popular and mainstream lines with dozens of models, both desktop and laptops, yet all we have right now is Dell XPS - Wiki | Golden
And within each of Dell’s named models e.g. Dell XPS 15, there is a huge variety of specs and CPUs, which invariably change every year; and even within the current year’s model, 9520, there is the choice of 3 different CPUs and there are mid-year refreshes. The CPUs themselves, even within a brand such as Intel i7, also have generations and within each a huge range of specs and numbers e.g. At the moment we only seem to have a few Xeon processors in Golden.

For different models there are other aspects of hardware choice such as amount, type and speed of RAM, storage, screen resolution and technology. Here is the set Dell uses - would you propose predicates for all those?

I could go on, but my genuine question for the community is what level of detail, for both product models and components, would people find of value in the Golden Graph? And for what sort of queries/scenarios/use cases would it be used? To shop for a new PC? To investigate the impact of temporary shortage of a particular part?
What info would be needed for each CPU? I’d imagine more detail than just “i7” - I would have thought at least the generation and performance variant (U vs P vs HK etc).
And how would all this info be maintained? Vendors are changing specs all the time.
