Didn't he say at the end of that video that someone was playing it back stage? Maybe they were streaming, could be why it stuttered at the start?

Hi all,

I bought the February edition of APC today, and they have a feature entitled: 'The PC's Revenge'. I've only had the quickest of a skim at the 'CPUs' part and read the following:

Speed demons shouldn't get too excited as the frequency of Ivy Bridge, at least in the first batch, doesn't seem to be a big step up, with the fastest i7-3770k reaching a Turbo peak of 3.9GHz.


(Bennet Ring, APC, February 2012, p. 25)

I've read through the diagrams supplied earlier in this thread, so I know performance wise, IB wouldn't be the greater overclocker as SB was. But, upon reading the above, would it be wiser to hold off till the 'second batch'? When does a second batch come out? Is it announced?

No second thoughts or anything like that; but the alleged speed increase IS tempting :D
Rig: Antec DF-30, GA P67A-UD4-B3, Intel i5-2500K, Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus (Fan) G.Skill Ripjaws X: F3 12800CL7D-8GBXH (8GB), GA GTX 560OC (1GB), 1TB HDD (but gives me only 5.9 score, so 'tis very slow)... can't remember the other stuff OTOH, will get rest asap!

im hoping the lack of clock speed increase is more due to them trying to hit a lower tdp than a sign that it wont oc any better

I'd say it has more to do with your trail of thought Dasa. It's almost a given that any new (enthusiast) CPU coming out of the Intel Fabs needs to hit 5GHz in order to be a success in the eyes of overclockers. Overclockers write the magazines and websites, and for that reason it is important that Intel make a chip that impresses everyone. Given the 2600K commonly passed 5GHz I find it hard to imagine Ivy being too far off the milestone.

all i have found is a suggestion that intel is releasing slightly higher clocked sandy chips which to me suggests they are in no hurry to release new cpu\mb
i wouldnt be surprised if we didnt see much till 2nd-3rd quarter from intel or nvidia as much as i want there new gear right now

damn it thats really disappointing was hoping for a decent new motherboard. 1155 pricers are going down however.

decent 3way sli/crossfire are few and far between

case in point 2700k, its a 2600k +100mhz. pretty sure everything else is identical, except the price.
as nesquick said, why even bother unless you have some competition.
in these global financial crisis times, they will probably begin to release things when they feel it will be most financially successful.

IMO there are too many bloody chipsets out at the moment. there is x58, h67, p67, z68, x79 and now z77? This has to be the fastest intel has ever upgraded its platforms. I think it will be interesting to see how well the z68 boards work with the ivy bridge cpu's. I believe all that is required will be a bios upgrade. I would consider a 3770K if its significantly better than 2500K.

Ivy Bridge Desktop Core i3 Processor Lineup Detailed, Lack PCIe Gen. 3.0

Details of desktop Core i7 and Core i5 "Ivy Bridge" processors in the LGA1155 package have been detailed at lengths, in the past. Core i3 parts based on the same 22 nm Ivy Bridge silicon, however, were relatively known. Tables listing out updated information about the lineup points out that Intel has as many as five Core i3 "Ivy Bridge" desktop processors in the works, all dual-core, and among which two are low-power parts.

The table also suggests that these Core i3 chips will have reduced features, importantly, the lack of PCI-Express 3.0 bus. When connected to these chips, PCI-E 3.0 add-on cards (such as graphics cards) will function in PCI-Express 2.0 mode. Further, these chips will lack support for AES-NI (accelerates encryption), VT-d (enhanced virtualization), and TXT (security). Certain models in the lineup have faster integrated graphics, denoted by a "5" in the end of the model number. These chips also lack Turbo Boost for the x86 cores, but feature HyperThreading.

Leading the pack is Core i3-3240, clocked at 3.40 GHz, with integrated graphics clocked at 650 MHz / 1020 MHz Dynamic. This is followed by the Core i3-3225, which is clocked at 3.30 GHz, packing faster Intel HD 4000 graphics. The Core i3-3220 is likely the cheapest of the lot, also clocked at 3.30 GHz, but with slower HD 2500 graphics. These three chips have rated TDP of 55W. Moving on to the low-power models, which have 35W TDP, we have the Core i3-3240T, with 3.00 GHz clock speed, and Core i3-3220T, with 2.80 GHz clock speed.

What do you think? I also see Core i5's there with 8 threads, and that Sandy Bridge-E is missing PCIe 3.0, and heading is LGA1155 Low Power CPU's... Not sure about this one, but still something to talk about :-P

lack of pci-e 3 could hurt those who want to run two new high end gpu on ivy there was talk a while back that they didnt have it in officially yet due to lack of cards to test it with but now that they have that... maybe this info is still a mix of old or maybe it didnt work or maybe they just want cf\sli users that want the extra bit of performance to spend extra on 2011

So if I was to buy p0is0n's GB-Z68XP-UD4 because its socket 1155, will it be able to take the new ivy bridge socket 1155 cpu's when they come out?
