Looks like probably the first ever Ivy Bridge benchmarks have been leaked over at Chiphell so take a look…
Here’s the 3D Mark 06 score. We’re looking at about 6841 3D Marks with the Ivy Bridge i7 3770K and its HD4000 graphics. The Ivy Bridge processor also gets a 7170 CPU score which is a good improvement over the current generation Sandy Bridge i7 2600K and the i5 2500K which scores around 6608 and 6101 respectively.
Here we have the single core and multi core runs of Cinebench 11.5. Again, we’re looking at a performance boost with the i7 3770K over the i7 2700K and the i5 2500K. The i7 3770K scores a 7.52 on the multicore run while the i7 2600K [...]
Ivy Bridge specs have been leaked and looking at the specs, there’s nothing really to be excited about.
The flagship i7 3770K will boast a 3.5ghz (3.9ghz Turbo) quad core CPU with HyperThreading which isn’t much different than the current specs for the i7 2600K which runs at 3.4ghz (3.8ghz Turbo). The real kicker in this party is efficiency with the i7 3770K spec’d to run at only 77W TDP, a 19% drop from the current 95W TDP of the i7 2600K. Of course, we are definitely interested in seeing the overclocking ability of these new chips (Which if the i7 2700K has shown us anything is that there is room for improvement).
In addition to these minor [...]
