    Not a big jump in gaming which doesn't make it worth the switch yet. I always found [H] reviews on cpu's and gaming a bit pointless. I get what they're trying to point out but no one plays games at 640x480.

    Mobile Haswell with the Iris GPU is insane. Really fast iGPU. I wonder if AMD can take the lead again with their next generation APUs.

    Seems like I will be waiting for Broadwell, or at this pace of improvements even Skylake. And then they are surprised that PC's don't sell well anymore.

    Yeah, Haswell is considerable upgrading for those who don't have a Sandy or better...
    Are we there yet?

    They are going to use GDDR-5 as graphics memory

    Looks like a great mobile platform.

    Waiting for delidding results.

    I had chills after checking that. I simply can't believe that the Haswell with GT3e stomps even a Desktop APU. Not taking into account the price difference, it would be sad if there is not any market where the AMD offer is superior.


    Did anyone tested overclocking Haswell on a non K part? I recall hearing that you could overclock via Base Clock on Haswell. What happened with all that?

    REALLY useful review as it looks at the heat especially when overclocking..

    in brief: Open air case, Corsair h100, 1.2v @ 4.6ghz and this things hitting 91c

    Still, the lead Iris has over A10-4600 is very significant. AMD has to make a big jump to retake the iGPU crown on the laptop market. I really hope they will though!

    -Power consumption looks much better than in Chinese reviews.
    -CPU gain is respectable (>10%) in many real applications.
    -Very impressive graphics power efficiency of IGP (according to hexus review).
    -Surprisingly HD4600 beats AMD APU in many OpenCL benchmarks (especial in some real apps, such as Photoshop).
    -Iris in Anand's review looks very good, considering its mobile IGP vs. fastest desctop APU.

    IMO, it has potential but the price is way out to lunch. At $649, that one processor costs more than an entry level laptop.

    That can't be right. Under air cooling I wasn't even hitting above 80C @ 4.5GHz.

    AFAIK, GT3 (but not GT3e) will be in all ULV (15-17W) CPUs

    Do any reviews actually mention S3 Sleep problem?

    I assume we still have to wait for another months for fixed chipsets to become available.

    Edit: found some info - Haswell has USB 3.0 issues with 14 out of 22 tested USB drives

    Looks like C2 is still on the way.

    After looking a few Reviews, I finally found what I was wanting. According to Tom's Hardware, you can NOT realistically overclock via Base Clock on non K parts:

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...w,3521-10.html

    That’d all be well and good if Intel was enabling this new level of flexibility for the folks who don’t spend extra on K-series parts, giving them the ability to pick higher BCLK settings without access to the ratio multiplier. However, the company instead chooses to restrict the ratios to the Core i7-4770K and i5-4670K—the same ones you can already overclock in 100 MHz increments. Anyone buying one of the 11 other SKUs in Intel’s new Core i7 and i5 line-up is out of luck.
    So you're limited to 107 MHz Base Clock at most, while possibily risking data corruption and all the bad things for forcing components that hate to run out of spec.


    According to this list, the price difference between a Core i5 4670 and 4670K is just 18 U$Ds, while for the Core i7 4770 against the 4770K is 35 U$D. However, now the K series doesn't make much sense. Besides that Haswell Frequency headroom doesn't seems to be substantial, specially compared to Sandy Bridge, Haswell K and non-K models have the same GPU (FINALLY they make sense out of it), so the only thing you get on a K model is the Unlocked Multiplier, while you're losing FOUR features: The classic three VT-d (For IOMMU virtualization), TXT, vPro, and a new feature introduced in Haswell, TSX, joins them.
    Basically, this is the way that Intel segments the market. Nice, it isn't? One thing is for sure: No K for me. I want to do serious stuff with my machine, its not a benchmark toy.

    Not sue what kind of ram set-up was used for testing AMD APU , using single channel DDR 1333 ram will fubar results for AMD APU.

    To remove as many bottlenecks as possible I configured all integrated GPU options (other than Iris Pro 5200) with the fastest supported memory. That worked out to being DDR3-2133 on desktop Trinity and desktop IVB, and DDR3-2400 on desktop Haswell (HD 4600). The mobile platforms, including Iris Pro 5200, all used DDR3-1600.
