Intel Ivy Bridge-E not a major improvement

Posted on Tuesday, April 02 2013 @ 12:25:58 CEST by

X-bit Labs got its hands on the specifications of Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge-E processors and concludes the new chips will barely improve performance.
In case the slide is legitimate and specifications published by the web-site are correct, then it appears that Intel decided not to increase core-count of the new HEDT-class microprocessors, even though it was technologically possible to do so. Moreover, given the silicon inside the new central processing units, it was also hard for Intel to push frequencies up significantly. Keeping in mind the fact that Ivy Bridge micro-architecture is not considerably faster than the Sandy Bridge, the Intel Core i7-4800/4900 processors will not be able to provide substantially higher performance than the existing Intel Core i7-3800/3900 chips. Still, those, who want to get even a slight performance boost can install the new chips into existing LGA2011 mainboards.
