launch of Ivy Bridge
     Wed, Apr 25 2012 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Ivy Bridge GPU takes advantage of Intel's 22nm FinFET process to nearly double performance and enhance programmability with DX11 and OpenCL 1.1 support. The new scalable architecture features more powerful shader cores, distributed sampling pipelines, a high bandwidth L3 cache, tesselation and 4K resolution displays. Overall, Ivy Bridge should be the highest performance integrated GPU at launch and Intel's first competitive graphics offering.

Intel Core i7-3770K (Ivy Bridge)
     Wed, Apr 25 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When compared to the Core i7-2600K the new i7-3770K wasn’t a great deal faster for the most part. Many of our real-world application tests saw very little difference in performance, such as Excel 2010, WinRAR and Photoshop CS5. That said, there were instances where the Core i7-3770K was around 10% faster, such as Fritz Chess 13. Where we saw the biggest gains was in our encoding benchmarks, here the Core i7 3770K was between 10–17% faster than the i7-2600K.

Ivy Bridge is the "tick" that brings a completely new process
     Wed, Apr 25 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Because of this long-tail release of a CPU, we already know quite a bit about Ivy Bridge, the new 22nm processor architecture from Intel to be rebranded as the 3rd Generation Intel Core Processor Family. Ivy Bridge is the "tick" that brings a completely new process technology node as we have seen over the last several years but this CPU does more than take the CPU from 32nm to 22nm. Both the x86 and the processor graphics portions of the die have some changes though the majority fall with the GPU.

Intel announces Ivy Bridge processors
     Tue, Apr 24 2012 | 4:10P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.comReports Digitimes; "Intel has introduced the quad-core third-generation Intel Core processor family, delivering visual and performance computing gains for gamers, media enthusiasts and mainstream users alike. Available now in high-end desktop, notebook and all-in-one (AIO) designs, the new processors are the first chips made using Intel's 22nm 3D tri-Gate transistor technology.

The combination of Intel's 3D tri-gate transistor technology and architectural enhancements help make possible up to double the 3D graphics and HD media processing performance compared with its previous generation of chips, said Intel. With as much as 20% microprocessor performance improvements and new technologies to speed the flow of data to and from the chips, the new processors further extend Intel's overall performance leadership.

The performance gains found in the new processors are due in part to the groundbreaking, three-dimensional structure of the new Intel transistors. Until today, computers, servers and other devices have used only two-dimensional planar transistors. Adding a third dimension to transistors allows Intel to increase transistor density and put more capabilities into every square millimeter of these new processors.

The third-generation Intel Core processor with Intel HD Graphics 4000 delivers up to two times better 3D graphics performance compared to the previous-generation processor. Intel HD Graphics 4000 supports Microsoft DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.1 and OpenCL 1.1. With Intel Quick Sync Video 2.0 technology built into the new processors, people can convert their videos up to two times faster than even last year's processors and up to 23 times faster than PCs just three years old. Platforms based on third-generation Intel Core processors also deliver faster data transfer capabilities made possible by USB 3.0 integrated into the Series 7 Platform Controller Hub (PCH) and PCI Express 3.0 integrated into the processor."

Posted by: STAFF
Now having looked at the processor performance of the brand new Intel Core i7 3770K Ivy Bridge CPU, up now is our first look at the Intel HD 4000 Gen7 graphics performance for the Ivy Bridge processors under Linux. Building upon what`s turned into a huge success for Intel with their Sandy Bridge graphics with admirable performance and stable open-source Linux drivers, Ivy Bridge volleys Intel`s Linux graphics capabilities into a whole new realm for those concerned about open-source graphics drivers."

Ivy Bridge CPUs, 28nm graphics cards facing shortages
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 7:38P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although Intel is ready to launch and sell its upcoming Ivy Bridge-based processors soon, shipments of the processor are estimated to be lower than expected with the possible driver being either low capacity or yield rates, and the situation is forcing Intel to adjust its processor shipment proportions for notebook and desktop platforms, according to sources from PC players, which added that Nvidia and AMD are also facing shortage issues for their 28nm graphics cards.

Intel to launch next-generation Xeon processor by the end of 2Q12
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 5:38P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is set to release its next-generation Xeon processor at the end of the second quarter. Since Nvidia and AMD will also release graphics cards that feature PCI Express Gen.3 in the second half, sources from workstation vendors expect the two updates will drive a replacement trend for workstations.

Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Ivy Bridge Processor Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 4:37P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The one area that the 22nm Ivy Bridge processors really shine in is the graphics department. Usually we don`t have too many positive things to say about Intel HD Graphics, but the new Intel HD 4000 series graphics engine shows major improvement. Intel said that mainstream gamers should be able to use Intel HD Graphics 4000 as they have up to twice the 3-D graphics performance compared to the previous-generation processor. Our testing showed that performance improved by up to 60% in game titles, which is a significant increase and nothing to laugh at. "

Core i7 3770K & 3750 & Z77 reviews
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 1:37P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Core i7 3770K and 3750 Ivy bridge processors alongside Intel`s Z77 DZ77GA-70K motherboard. Will Ivy Bridge be the processor series everything you expected? Performance wise the all new Ivy Bridge series is not going to stun and shock like the Sandy Bridge series did. In fact clock for clock it is all roughly the very same, with a +0.8% performance offset in favor of Ivy Bridge. However -- with Ivy Bridge comes increased overclockability, the platform comes with native USB 3.0, we get PCIe Gen 3 for the fastest graphics cards and overall just a really fast processor series.

     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 12:45P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we get our fair share of evaluation products on NDA here at APH Networks, we don`t usually do performance previews on the stuff we get -- either we get the review done on time, or, well, we release it at our own schedule, haha. But here`s the deal: With Intel`s latest Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge processor sitting in our labs for the last little while, I am as excited to share our experience with you as much as you are interested in finding out how it performs in the benchmarks. Being the `tick` part of Intel`s `tick-tock` release cycle, what does the 22nm die shrink bring to the table today? To find out, here is a set of quick and dirty benchmarks along with a preliminary overclocking result to go. We will have a full review ready in a few weeks from now (Having a series of Electrical Engineering exams in a row last week certainly did not help). But for now, let`s not waste any more time, and move straight into the meat!"
