First test of a Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge processor
Thu, 2012-02-23 - Leonidas
As usual haunt in the Far East, weeks before the launch about new processors, this time, the Chinese MyDrivers get hold of the Core i7-3770K, the flagship of Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge Architecture and send them through a complete CPU test . The Ivy Bridge processor was compared against a Core i7-2600K from the Sandy Bridge series, which takes up but with 100 MHz lower nominal clock and also 100 MHz less Turbo Mode clock - the better comparison model to the Core i7-3770K would be here the same clock Core i7-2700K have been. Since the clock rate difference but only accounts for a maximum of 3 percent (which should provide an average of 2 percent difference in performance) , these processors can still compare quite reasonable.

It made ​​the Ivy Bridge model, a surprisingly good result with a 10.3 percent higher performance than the 3.0 percent slower taktendem Sandy Bridge model - this indicates a (in the appropriate benchmarks) by as much as 7-8 percent higher per / MHz performance of Ivy Bridge. Once added many general tests, such as by zip programs (often bandwidth-or interface-limited) or something like PCMark showing mostly only fairly small performance fluctuations, it could also be an increase in Pro / MHz performance of only about 5 percent will be determined - but then it depends just on the benchmark portfolio and by whether they are intentionally damaging CPU benchmarks out looking or just takes a wider benchmark for the field hands. When it comes to pure CPU performance, rather they are likely to fall 7-8 percent per / MHz advantage - is still interesting, if you can find this value in (CPU limited) gaming benchmarks.
