Haswell specifications?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Has anyone seen official specification for the Haswell chip?

eager to find out if it is worth upgrading my kit..

cheers

What are you currently running? Ivy Bridge?

If so its most likely not worth the upgrade from a purely performance perspective.

Its said though that Base Clock overclocking is coming back with Haswell, and someone has apparently come out and speculated that Haswell is going to be an overclockers dream.

However none of us really don't know anything yet.

If I get really into benching and can afford to build a strictly benching rig I'll be getting Haswell for that, I'll be happy with Ivy in my Everyday/Gaming rig for a 2-3 more years yet I imagine. Can see me upgrading it when Skylake comes out.

right right...
will be interesting to see what the chip is all about, what is the speculation regarding skylake?

I will be following your train of thought to be honest.. Ivy Bridge is booming along at the mo.. and have no quibbles with it.. apart from having to butcher the little bugger...

Interested to know about the skylake chip though.

Is AMD ever going to challenge intel on the chip side or have they slipped to far back?

Here's the specs for Haswell:

There are no details for Skylake at the moment apart from it will be using a 14 nm manufacturing process and will have native support for DDR4 memory.
As Matt said, if you're currently running Sandy or Ivy there is no point upgrading until Skylake.

Wanting to upgrade really badly, but also want to wait for skylake. Currently running a first Gen i7 with 2 5850's in crossfire.
should I upgrade CPU now or buy a good gpu and wait for skylake?

do not get the Ivy Bridge if overclocking.. from personal experience the chip is degrading big time. might of had a bad batch but i have delidded and lapped the ihs.. so can't return it

wait for the skylake

waste your money otherwise.. and fingers crosses it will be soldered from die to ihs.

good luck with your upgrade.

best

Notion since no one has seen an ivy degrade yet it still looks like your the only one so i am not sure why you bring that up. also i believe you scratched your pcb in another post when you delided

hi enigma

well he asked if he should upgrade and thats my opinion and experience. There is as it looks more than myself who have had this issue.
plus the stated voltage of 1.355-1.36 @ 4.8 was after the delidding.. i think i had seriously gone deeper than th top surface of the plastic on the pcb then i think it would not work altogether. so yes i did "scratch it" but i don't think it has anything to do with that as i have checked the location and it looks to fall under the graphics area. plus they are negligible. At the end of the day that chap was asking wether he should upgrade now and i personally wait for the skylake, the haswell is not much difference on ivybridge. if he is desperate go fore it.. but get the haswell over the ivybridge.. the temp issue kills it for me unless you delid and blow your warranty and can run the risk of having to buy a new chip.
There is so many people having different voltage parameters that the margin is vast in my opinion with the ivy bridge.

I think the ****ty tim they use is there for a reason and that is it can't handle the voltage.. sure shoot me out of the water for that statement but its from my experience.

please see the thread:

Unless the heatsink is soldered to the die on Haswell i will be avoiding it and any other intel cpu that does the same, Spending $$$$ worth of watercooling parts to be denied by cruddy tim is a joke tbh. You should never have to risk damaging your cpu by delidding to achieve the performance Ivy should have had from the factory

I totally agree, my thoughts are the same!
