Official Ivy Bridge Benchmarks found their way onto the Net.

A deck of slides got into cyberspace, these are official and thus Intels interpretation of the performance of Ivy Bridge versus Sandy bridge processors.

Ivy Bridge CPUs will have single threaded performance on par with the existing Sandy Bridge CPUs and will mainly deliver improvements to power consumption and integrated graphics - nothing for PC enthusiasts to get excited about.

Intel have now revealed official performance figures for IB and they look rather good. They've produced a raft of benchmarks, which reveal improvements such as 56% in ArcSoft Media Expresso, 25% in Excel 2010 and a 199% gain in the 3D Mark Vantage GPU benchmark. Unfortunately, they haven't released any benchmarks based on high performance 3D games, but it's probably safe to say that they will be similarly improved. Now, on to the benchmarks, which compare their new 3.4 GHz i7-3770 (4 cores + HT) with the current 3.4 GHz i7-2600, also with 4 cores + HT:

+7% higher overall SYSmark 2012 score
+14% higher overall HDXPRT 2011 score
+15% higher Cinebench 11.5 score
+13% better ProShow Gold 4.5 result
+25% faster performance in Excel 2010
+56% faster performance in ArcSoft Media Expresso
+192% higher overall 3DMark Vantage score
+17% faster performance in 3DMark Vantage CPU benchmark
+199% faster performance in 3DMark Vantage GPU benchmark

The key architectural enhancements delivering these improvements are:

Intel's new 22nm 3D Tri-Gate technology. More on this here
Enhanced AVX acceleration
IGP performance improved by 30% compared to its predecessor
IGP supports DX11 and OpenCL 1.1
PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface, including a PCI Express 2.0 x4 controller

Ivy Bridge will feature PCI Express 3.0 x16 interconnection as well as PCIe 2.0 x4 controller. In fourth, the processor will support a number of power management innovations. The CPU is made using 22nm process technology.

Intel will release its code-named Ivy Bridge central processing units for desktops in March or April, 2012.

When I saw the thread, my heart jumped, and I started getting very giddy. Then I read the report.

Blech. IB-E will be the really interesting thing I guess.

Sandy-Bridge system it is!

Core i5 2500K @ 4.5GHZ, 8GB RAM 1866MHZ, 1080 GTX Strix, 128GB Samsung 830 SSD + 1TB Samsung 850 Evo SSD +  2 1TB HDDs.) Windows 7 64-bit Professional

Gonna wait for non-intel PR benchmarks Tongue2

Also IB won't really be about performance improvement as much.
It'll be about less power draw and hopefully an awesome overclocking headroom due to the new transistors and the smaller process.

We could be looking at a stable 5.0Ghz or more here, with pretty low voltages / heat.
IB is mostly about the igp, igp is where the mass of consumers are

Some real numbers here. Bit faster in Cinebench no faster in SuperPi.
Oh yea, for Intels idea of the market, sure.
Us enthusiasts simply skip the IGP as some weird tack on we don't really want Tongue2
I'm not sure they're will be a big gain on overclocking. The new transistor have very big gain in low frequency not that much on high frequency. So I don't think you will gain more that 10% on clock frequency vs SB.
There's also the smaller process Smile
Ivy Bridge is all about notebooks. If you're into full sized rigs you're gonna be waiting until Haswell for something interesting
Notebooks absolutely need the lower power consumption, yeah.
They'll also benefit from the faster GPU, which may be good enough for PCSX2 even.
