Ivy Bridge & 8 Core SB-EP Benchmarks


Recommended Posts

Just to Elaborate a little further, I found this today.

Ivy Bridge Official Benchmarks Surface

By Hilbert Hagedoorn, December 1, 2011 - 10:11 PM via tpu via xbitlabs

 

 

 

A deck of slides got into cyberspace, these are official and thus Intels interpretation of the performance of Ivy Bridge versus Sandy bridge processors.

 

Ivy Bridge CPUs will have single threaded performance on par with the existing Sandy Bridge CPUs and will mainly deliver improvements to power consumption and integrated graphics - nothing for PC enthusiasts to get excited about.

 

Intel have now revealed official performance figures for IB and they look rather good. They've produced a raft of benchmarks, which reveal improvements such as 56% in ArcSoft Media Expresso, 25% in Excel 2010 and a 199% gain in the 3D Mark Vantage GPU benchmark. Unfortunately, they haven't released any benchmarks based on high performance 3D games, but it's probably safe to say that they will be similarly improved. Now, on to the benchmarks, which compare their new 3.4 GHz i7-3770 (4 cores + HT) with the current 3.4 GHz i7-2600, also with 4 cores + HT:

 

 

+7% higher overall SYSmark 2012 score

+14% higher overall HDXPRT 2011 score

+15% higher Cinebench 11.5 score

+13% better ProShow Gold 4.5 result

+25% faster performance in Excel 2010

+56% faster performance in ArcSoft Media Expresso

+192% higher overall 3DMark Vantage score

+17% faster performance in 3DMark Vantage CPU benchmark

+199% faster performance in 3DMark Vantage GPU benchmark

The key architectural enhancements delivering these improvements are:

 

 

Intel's new 22nm 3D Tri-Gate technology. More on this here

Enhanced AVX acceleration

IGP performance improved by 30% compared to its predecessor

IGP supports DX11 and OpenCL 1.1

PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface, including a PCI Express 2.0 x4 controller

Ivy Bridge will feature PCI Express 3.0 x16 interconnection as well as PCIe 2.0 x4 controller. In fourth, the processor will support a number of power management innovations. The CPU is made using 22nm process technology.

 

Intel will release its code-named Ivy Bridge central processing units for desktops in March or April, 2012.

I would say that the 1155 chipset will live on quite nicely with this kind of performance and features just around the corner. Im wondering what kind of OC headroom there will be.

Yea, the low 77W TDP would make for some nice temps, which I would think would equate to some OC headroom :evilgrin: If those 3dMark numbers are accurate, the benchmark junkies will be all over this chip :lol:

as amazingly hard as it was to go buy a SC and chuck my i7 away i couldnt.

ive never gotten such a low-voltage chip, let alone for my daily use mahine.

 

i've been waiting for IB and hope to see more results like this.

of course they couldn't do any modern gaming tests :(, but it will come soon :)

Hell yeah :evilgrin:

 

I doubt its that much of a perormance jump over SB , but the lower power and nm will make for some awesome overclocking. 6GHz anyone ?

p4's with dry ice hit 6ghz, lets shoot for a new record lol
