General Performance

SYSMark 2007 & 2012

Although not the best indication of overall system performance, the SYSMark suites do give us a good idea of lighter workloads than we're used to testing. SYSMark 2007 is a better indication of low thread count performance, although 2012 isn't tremendously better in that regard.

As the SYSMark suites aren't particularly thread heavy, there's little advantage to the 6-core Sandy Bridge E CPUs. The 3770K however manages to slot in above all of the other Sandy Bridge parts at between 5 - 20% faster than the 2600K. The biggest advantages show up in either the lightly threaded tests or in the FP heavy benchmarks. Given what we know about Ivy's enhancements, this is exactly what we'd expect.

    CPU perf pretty much as expected,GPU perf somewhat dissapointing ,i thought they'll at least aim to match Llano but i guess it is ok for 1MP laptops screens if mobile parts perform close enough (and a couple of big ifs when it comes to image quality and drivers).
    Any opinions yet about QuickSync encoding quality?

    And we should remark that's comparing 2600 with 3700 which have different cpu too.
    Other benchmarks had significantly better results on 3700 than 2600.

    So Anand, how you know that difference is not attributable to the CPU and not to some gpu improvement?

    You are not being serious, are you? The CPU gets 10% in CPU sensitive benchmarks and GPU gained 40-60%. Even taking out 10%, its still 30-50%, which btw isn't true as games aren't very sensitive to CPU changes as applications do. Reply

    Look at crisys or metro benchmarks and tell me where you find that improvement, at least more than what you find in cpu difference. Reply

    I've tried it on some HD clips at a local TV station and on a big screen it really sucked.It's way behind AMD.We used aHP EliteBook 8460P laptop. Reply

    At least AMD's products are HD capable. Reply

    My 5 year old laptop with a shared ram gpu is "HD capable". GTFO noob. Reply

    Billions in R&D, double the MSRP, half the power and yet it still can't play Crysis better than Llano, which will be replaced by Trinity in a few weeks. What a crying shame. Reply

    Not playing Crysis sounds like a good thing to me. Reply

    Source or gtfo. Apple got the stock HD 3000, why would this be different? Reply
