[LR] Hands On With Devil’s Canyon – Intel Haswell Refresh - Page 2

post #11 of 106
I know there are never any guarantees but I would seriously love to hear Intel make some sort of vague statement about these chips are overclocking higher than previous Haswell cpu's due to the improved TIM.

This is the first I've heard about an unlocked Pentium. I'm excited! I have a feeling I'll be using them a lot for LoL builds for teenagers.

No matter how much I love the idea of an unlocked pentium, I can't help but feel that Intel should of released this 3-4 years ago with the debut of Sandybridge, weren't most nehalems unlocked? I'm not entirely sure.

More efficient and better multi-threading looks like it's about to take off with DX12, Mantle and the next gen systems, so it looks like the Pentiums are going to fall behind with their dual cores, or possibly battling out with AMD Quad cores.

From most of the benchmarks I've seen, a fair amount of games are still single-threaded today and I3s and Pentiums are often seen toppling quads and six cores even the eight cores if only 4 cores are utilized at most.

Guild Wars 2 runs disgustingly on FX chips many people I know with the six cores are horribly bottlenecked and always complaining because the game isn't using their cores to the fullest.



Bearing in mind that this graph is from the abysmal bulldozers, but even on the Pile-drivers much hasn't improved.

However this is just from a gaming perspective, these chips will still have their great uses and I may end up dropping one into my Server for server operations which run mostly on a single thread like Minecraft, upping the clocks on these things are bound to get you per-core performance comparable to a higher clocked I5 or I7 i bet, minus the cores and maybe cache if they're lacking in that area.

If you overclock a Pentium wouldn't it also consume more power?

Even at 4.6ghz a Pentium isn't going to consume much power

AMD isn't focusing on the high-end. They've already explained their stance, and that is focusing on HSA and APU's for now.

Nope. Carrizo for consumers, Toronto for enterprise.

Yes, I'll be quite amused if benchmarks show a Pentium @ 6ghz out performing an FX-8350.
