[MULTI] IDF 2012 San Francisco News/Discussion Thread - Haswell, Clover Trail, Medfield & More!

IDF 2012 San Francisco Has Begun!


So it's that time of the year again. Intel's Developer's Forum 2012 officially started today, and to avoid a torrent of news posts, I've decided to open a mega-thread, with all of the announcements, updated as they happen.

If you have any articles to add, post them below and I'll add them here.

11th September 2012

Intel has offered up details of its 4th-generation Core processor family based on Haswell microarchitecture at its annual developers forum in San Francisco, California.



According to Intel exec David (Dadi) Perlmutter, Santa Clara managed to reduce the platform idle power by more than 20 times over the 2nd generation - all while delivering "outstanding" performance and responsiveness.

[ZDNET] IDF 2012: Has the convertible PC's time finally come?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Quote:
One of the major themes at Intel’s annual developer conference, which takes place this week, is expected to be convertibles that function as laptops and tablets. These aren't new, but Microsoft's "reimagining" of Windows has prompted PC makers--including HP, Dell, Lenovo, Asus, Acer, Samsung, Toshiba and Sony--to once again experiment with hybrids. Will convertibles finally catch on?

[TECH2] IDF 2012: Intel wants you to call new CPUs ‘4th generation Intel Core', not 'Haswell'
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Quote:
Intel is focusing on branding its upcoming family of CPUs more as ‘4th generation Intel Core' processors than as ‘Haswell’ processors before it is launched. It seems to have come to the company’s notice that since codenames such as “Sandy Bridge,” “Ivy Bridge” and “Haswell” are usually easier to use than the official product names in casual discussion and descriptions, they are easily confused with regard to the actual name of the products. Intel is looking to rectify this for its next line of processors

If Haswell dominates the 3930k I'll be following the guy in your avatar.

Well, from what they're saying, if there's a Haswell-E, it'll most likely be around 10% faster, with 20% less power consumption, so you'll have to wait for Skylake to get dominated I'm afraid xD
post #4 of 10
Where did you get the 10% number? The architecture presentation says that they doubled the FLOPs per cycle from Sandy Bridge, so unless the clock speed on Haswell is significantly reduced, the new arch should be significantly faster? Or am I missing something else completely?

Edit: never mind, it seems like they also doubled that value from Nehalem to Sandy Bridge, so it's not that big a deal.

Yeah, it took me a while to find, and its an old article but here

I should write a disclaimer, anything I may say is merely personal conjecture, and not fact thumb.gif

There are PDFs available of the various presentations here, the Haswell microarchitecture one is ARCS001 https://intel.activeevents.com/sf12/scheduler/catalog/catalog.jsp?sy=768

Its Fudzilla, not credible tongue.gif I expect 20% like Sandy Bridge over Nehalem. When it comes to floating point ops/AVX2, I expect significantly more. I bet it'll be a monster in something like 3DS Max, Adobe Affect Effects, etc.
