More about difference ivy bridge haswell
  1. Without doing very deep into the technical specs. Haswell is a worked over Ivy bridge with an improved back end, New instruction sets, Bigger IGP, vastly improved memory controller and on die VRM's.
  2. Haswell is geared more towards laptops and tablets in terms of energy efficiency without compromising power, and Ivy Bridge is simply a performance increase over Sandy Bridge, as far as I can tell.
  3. Not much......
    The Haswell has voltage regs on the die itself, Ivy does not, I read about ~10% performance increase. Different socket of course, I also read it does not OC too well for heat reasons I gather, roll of the dice to get one that will, Ivy pretty much was consistent in the OCing, they all did a decent job. I am sure there are more....hope this helps

    Ivy was a die shrink of Sandy. 32nm > 22nm as broadwell will be a die shrink of Haswell.. 22nm > 14nm
  5. Main difference for a casual user is that a Haswell CPU is about 10% faster than an Ivy Bridge CPU at the same speed. Also laptops with Haswell should use less energy and run a little cooler than with Ivy Bridge.
  6. thanks for the replies ... i am working for sales so that many customer need to know the basic difference but i used to explain still was trying to find some better views so posted a question on the forum ...lol
