    An increasing number of people within the industry have access to Intel Ivy Bridge engineering samples. Some of them are generous enough to share performance details with the public. One such kind soul posted 3DMark, Fritz Chess, and Cinebench test results. An Intel Core i7-3770 sample was the test candidate, this chip has all components and features available to Ivy Bridge LGA1155 enabled, including HyperThreading, a faster uncore, and the full 8 MB L3 cache. The chip was put through 3DMark 06 (to test its CPU and iGPU performance), Cinebench 11.5 (both single-thread and multi-threaded), and Fritz Chess Benchmark (again, both single and multiple threads).

    Why not compared to 2600k
    I want to know of a good upgrade
    I also need pci-e 3.0 for kepler next year

    Still has a long way to go to meet AMDs Integrated GPU

    Well, results still early but when Intel talks GPU...grain of salt it. Till they can deliver results, there is no reason to trust an Intel IGP to be anything but sucky.

    You might want to keep in mind that this was tested using Alpha drivers and there's four months or so to go until launch. I wouldn't take these early benchmarks as more than that, an early performance preview

    If you want to compare single threaded and multi threaded performance

    There's a difference between i7-39xx which is SB-E and 37xx which is IB.

    So from what it seems, its just slightly faster than 2600K?

    Just ignore the underlined 3960x and take a look at the 2600k score, it's simple :)

    We shouldn't expect huge difference since this is a "tick" in the architecture change. The next "tock" would be the one that yields more significant performance gains. :)

    Definitely, architecture is way more important to performance than shrink.
    What die shrink helps more is in the TDP decrease :)

    ^^ and yet INTEL didn't think it's important to have 35W QuadCores.

    Insead, more dual cores. Oh GOD!

    Its all about the overclock

    No one seems to be talking about it but 22nm tri-gate process is all about keeping the TDP under control, reducing the current leakage and so, fingers crossed, allowing for some monster overclocking.

    I think the overall performance increase looks pretty decent (considering zero competition) and when you add that together with an easy 5GHz OC or maybe even 6GHz IB looks very tasty to me.

    Did anyone else notice the fact that the Core Voltage was only 0.88 :twitch:
    I wonder what clock you could achieve with a just a volt!!!!

    Might have to pick me up a nice Z68 board when Ivy Bridge rolls out and have myself a nice little upgrade if the price is right, would leave me with some very strong parts to start a second build as well.
