Intel Ivy Bridge will be unveiled in April 2012
The first benchmark performance of 22nm Intel Core i7-3770K codenamed Ivy Bridge has got revealed today. Outside of its 3.5GHz base clock speed, along with the support for Intel’s Turbo Boost technology, Core i7 3770K can increase its operating speed to 3.9GHz when not all cores are active or simply in single threaded applications, using single core.
TOPPC, a leading Taiwanese overclocker
The Taiwanese clocker nicknamed TOPPC has a great involvement in overclocking of processors with liquid nitrogen in a professional level. He has also participated in MSI Master Overclocking Arena 2008 and proved his Excellency in overclocking by winning third place in the Championship arena.
TOPPC has decided to test the performance of Intel Core i7-3770K
The name TOPPC, was first heard from the mouth of one of the sellers in kompyueternoy shop in Taiwan, and seen his name displayed in one of the cup with the logo of MSI MOA. From the conversation with that seller, it was made clear that TOPPC work in Taiwan as an overclocker. He never ceases to get involve in overclocking and now he come up with his words about a new processor Intel Core i7-3770K.
Details of Intel Ivy Bridge revealed
He claimed that
- Intel Ivy Bridge will be manufactured using 22nm processors and will be presented in April 2012
- It will be based on LGA 1155 socket
- It will be compatible with the Intel H61, H67, P67, Z68 chipsets and new unannounced Ivy Bridge chipset
Test Results of Ivy Bridge revealed
After testing the engineering version of Intel Core i7-3770K for two days, TOPPC summarized as follows:
- The performance of CPU is increased by 10% when compared to the Intel Core i7-2600K
- The performance of the memory controller is also increased, as the maximum available speed memory stood at 2800 MHz
- PCI Express 3.0 support
- Theoretically the temperature should be low but under load the CPU temperature readings are high
- Stability of multi-threaded benchmark has been achieved at a frequency of 4.8 GHz only
- At the time of announcement of Ivy Bridge, a benchmark for single-threaded operating frequencies will be at the level of 5,2-5,4 GHz and that of multi-threaded operating frequencies will fall just below 5 GHz.
If the overclocking performance of the final revised version of Ivy Bridge doesn’t scale much, then atleast the speed of memory was admiringly enough. He finally gave a verdict that Ivy Bridge will make a worthy transition from Sandy Bridge processors. And about overclocking he finally noticed that he held an early version of the processor, and possibly, Intel can improve overclocking potential of Ivy Bridge in the final versions.
