More Leaked Benchmarks from Intel's Ivy Bridge

By - Source: NordicHardware | B 51 comments

Ivy Bridge sets Super Pi 1M record @ 5.187 seconds (unofficially).

In December, we saw our first glimpse of the potential of the Ivy Bridge CPUs when compared against current gen i7 2600. The i7 3770 showed minor improvements over the i7 2600 in limited benchmarks reviewed. For most, this was expected, as the major improvements were to come with the Intel HD Graphics 4000, 22nm 3-D Tri-Gate Transistor Technology, and improved TDP (77W).

Recently, a leak from NordicHardware gave us a glimpse of the potential of the Ivy Bridge i7 3770K when overclocked using liquid nitrogen. The i7 3770K running at 6.961 GHz with memory at DDR3 2652 MHz with 7-11-7-28-1T timings - on liquid nitrogen - completed SuperPi 1M benchmark in 5.187 seconds.

The current record with a Core i7 2600K in SuperPi 1M benchmark is 6.109 seconds at 6.042 GHz, while a Core i7 980X has the world record at 5.781 seconds and 6.930 GHz. These unofficial results would give the i7 3770K a new world record, along with nearly a 1 GHz clock speed improvement over the i7 2600K on liquid nitrogen.

Also, NordicHardware talked about a new record in SuperPi 32M. The i7 3770K clocked at 6.650 GHz completed SuperPi 32M in 5 minutes and 2.843 seconds, which is faster than the current record of 5 minutes and 13.719 seconds. With the i7 3770K clocked at 6.805 GHz, it performed the PiFast test in just 10.56 seconds, which can be compared to the current record at 12.01 seconds.

These unofficial results give overclockers and enthusiasts alike something to look forward to down the road.

    Ahhh it's sad that intel doesn't compere it's processors to AMD any longer....

    I saw techpowerup was ICE'd earlier. Probably used it as april fool's joke then decided to take an extra day off.

    @amuffin (and all who got that message)

    Refresh the page. And happy April Fools' day.


    On-topic: I guess all the enthusiasts who bought X79 platforms are kicking themselves. That time looks to be a substantial improvement; though I'm surprised the 3960X didn't make a world record for speed in pi computations.

    I'm willing to bet the majority of the improvement in those benchmarks come from the higher turbo frequencies.

    games aren't CPU dependant

    you'll see next to no improvement in most games under low settings, and no imporvements under high settings

    Nope. It was April's Fool from techpowerup yesterday :p . I fall for it too when I woke up yesterday for sum seconds and then I thought, "Woot, woot???" and then I saw the day and then I /facepalm.

    You demonstrate a noted lack of knowledge on how overclocking these chips works.....you barely touch the base clock, the majority of the work is done my manipulating the turbo multis well beyond what is stock, far nullifying any impact on stock settings.

    I was going to say "And in other news, AMD doesn't see fit to release any Piledriver benchmarks... because you're just not worth it.".

    john_4Nice but I see no need for a faster system right now. Maybe after the next gen of kiddie consoles releases then the PC gaming will demand it.


    Yeah I'm still gaming fine with my Phenom II x 6. I'll upgrade either when I need it for gaming or when the CPU companies come out with something truly impressive. 10-15 percent gains don't make me want to upgrade (especially when I won't notice much if any performance in games). Even if games don't improve though I would upgrade the CPU if it really impressed me. Right now though I don't see the point of upgrading.

    Well, not everyone has a year or two old computer. And if you are buying a new computer, why not get a better CPU, even if not major improvement over the sandy? In years to come, you would have to upgrade GPUs, and gpus only. And it's not only 10% improvement on Phenom II x6, Ivy is much more than that. Comparable Intel chipsets are faster too...
