IPC wall?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
As intel keeps improving their manufacturing tech it now seems that the improvements are mainly power oriented, because for example the performance between the 2500k and 3570k are almost exactly the same.. The IPC is not really changing are CPUs just reaching their maximum?

That's because it's Sandybridge and Sandybridge-E. The architecture is the same, they just improved it. But Ivybridge's architecture is more efficient per hertz.

Huh, the example he used the 2500k is sandy bridge and the 3570k is its ivy bridge direct replacement.


and for the record, while not huge it is faster clock for clock

My bad, I had a rough weekend

So yes, the processors become faster clock per clock throughout the generations. Just because they're releasing processors with smaller generational performance gaps doesn't mean processors aren't getting more powerful.

We haven't hit an IPC wall ; but currently, the processors we have are enough for 99% of consumers. The main goal is to make them A) Cheaper B) More efficient.

So in theory the 4xxx i CPUs will be a significant leap in performance all around.

They'll be noticeable ... idk what you qualify as significant.
