Ivy Bridge official benchmarks leaked

Written by Slobodan Simic

Pretty much what was rumored


Finally the offical set of Ivy Bridge benchmark slides have leaked online and they pretty much show the exactly same thing that was rumored before. As is always the case with offical slides, these compare performance of Ivy Bridge versus Sandy Bridge or simply new against previous generation, and of course, should be taken with a grain of salt as, they come from the manufacturer.

According to the slides, the main performance gain is with the new IGP that will score up to 30% more compared to Sandy Bridge. Of course, to be quite honest, Sandy Bridge one was pretty undewhelming, so we guess that it wasn't that hard to beat it. According to the slides, Ivy Bridge is up to 17 percent faster in 3DMark Vantage CPU test and up to 199 percent faster in 3DMark Vantage GPU test. These sound like pretty decent improvements, but then again we doubt that any 3D games will be playable, at least not on any decent quality settings.

Ivy Bridge is pretty much on par with Sandy Bridge CPUs when it comes to single threaded performance and the performance slides show up to 15 percent higher Cinebench 11.5 socres and various performance boosts in Excel 2010, SYSmark 2012, ArcSoft Media Expresso and similar software.

Of course, you can expect decent power consumption improvements as Ivy is based on Intel's new 22nm 3D Tri-Gate manufacturing process and will include enhanced AVX acceleration, PCI-Express 3.0 x16 and PCI-Express 2.0 x4 controllers.

Currently, Ivy Bridge is rumoured to be scheduled for launch sometime in Q2 2012, between March and May.
