Nope, they did not, anandtech is a trashcan.
yup... that's my current cpu
totally gonna upgrade to haswell...
but some of my "totally rich and need to have the latest kind of thing" friends that have ivy is also planned to upgrade to haswell (he previously upgrade from sandy to ivy), so i think as long as you can afford it, why not
The TDP's higher than Ivy's. Hopefully, it will be soldered. The Higher end chips at least.
Can't blame intel for focusing on integrated GPU this time. Their CPU performance is top notch already, iGPU performance is lacking compared to AMD.
f' the upgrade then.....scoop up your rich friends sandy/ivy system
My 2600K does way more than I need it to so upgrading for me will only be in the GPU department in the near future.
Little performance upgrade + USB 3.0 issue = not worth upgrading if you ask me.
Yeah, you need to get rid of those 6950 cards, get you a 7970 and some pie.
Honestly I have thought about offering them up for a GTX 670 to help a cruncher out since the GTX 670 is HORRIBLE on points.
Why would you get a 670 over a 7970 for a crunching rig? I know you know the 7970 is the best card for crunching, short of maybe Titan or workstation GPUs.
The thing is barbaric I wouldnt be crunching the main anymore
I am quite satisfied with this jump in performance, remember guys Ivy shouldn't have brought us IPC improvements so basically you should compare this to Sandy Bridge and look at the leap forward it has made.
I am pretty sure that if Intel kept the IPC improvements from Ivy and released it all into Haswell you'd be all shocked about the performance leap, which is quite significant from SB to Haswell.
Anyway I can't wait to see how this translates into the real deal, the HEDT platform since the 1150/1155 socket is doomed to be gimped down to 4 cores and integrated graphics.
Would be insane to see an Haswell based 8 core CPU, the jump from a 3930K/3960X would be mind blowing.
Might've been because of slower memory used, inefficient mobo/bios, or because they changed the memory hierarchy. Apparently they're going back to a seperate plane for the L3 cache, so the GPU can also benefit from it when the CPU cores are clocked lower.
I though the last image is haswell performance using dedicated gpu lol.
Why shouldn't it? I went from conroe to yorkfield for a reason.
Die shrink shouldn't give that much of an improvement, that's where I got my conclusion.
Intel has surely tweaked the architecture from SB to Ivy.
Why do you guys want a soldered ihs? Removing the ihs is the best feature of ivy bridge.
voiding your warranty is a good feature?
Well I assume a lot of people here overclock, so warranty isn't a huge concern. There's no purpose of ivy bridge otherwise, with a 3% ipc boost over sandy bridge.
<3 my ivy bridge. Cheap, sips energy, performs much better than my Phenom II BE.
I think they have the IHS soldered to the die instead of using TIM?
I heard its stuck on using peanut butter.
Ivy has 87W TDP, with no graphics.
I'd have expected desktop versions here(i7 3780, 8-thread, 3.6 GHz stock, 4.0 GHZ turbo, i7 3790, 8-thread, 3.7 GHz stock, 4.1 GHZ turbo), and haswell is stupid to me, but whatever, I don't work for Intel. I have said for over a year now haswell was underwhelming. I am not sure why anyone expected anything different. Same thing applies to solder under the IHS. Don't expect what isn't coming.
basically TH is saying they are unimpressed but in a nice way. I think everyone expected a little more out haswell
I'll be getting the 4770k regardless.
