Im looking forward to power savings of being on the lower process and 3D transistors. In theory it should offer much lower consumption, especially at the lower end of the scale.

perhaps when ivy bridge comes to the market bit-tech will revisit their article on homemade nas boxes

Well most of that went right over my head, but interesting stuff none the less specially the security parts.
Nice article

Why would anybody need something like Ivy Bridge for a NAS box?

I think the point being made was that with the potentially substantial power savings that tri - gate may provide, you could have a NAS box which was both extremely frugal on power while doing nothing and extremely fast when called upon to upload a video (or many small files for that matter) over your gigabit ethernet cabling. Sure the Ivy Bridge parts coming out soon probably aren't the best choice for a NAS box, but the lower power mobile parts might be pretty well suited to such a role.

The low end of Ivy Bridge presumably like the low end of Sandy bridge on MITX makes for a great NAS box. The extra reduction in power consumption at idle and the performance when pushing bytes will make it cheap to run a box capable of maxing out 1 gbit/s.

The NAS boxes I see reviewed rarely max out ethernet, the low end of them barely hit 15MB/s instead of the 120 MB/s the hard drives and the cable is capable of. A Sandy Bridge CPU on MITX will hit peak performance at a mere 20% CPU usage with software raid 5. Its overkill but there is nothing in between the two to deliver the top performance. Ivy Bridge will allow further reductions in power which is always welcome for the low end.

If you're building a NAS box, why not use an AMD E-350 M-ITX board? It's plenty fast and will be much cheaper.

Anyway, NAS boxes are a bit off topic for this thread, anyone excited by the new maximum CPU multiplier that's gone from 57x to 63x? Did anyone even hit the 57x limit of Sandy Bridge?

Interesting article, especially how the cs2.00 is 25% indipitive finfet 1a.0 of the ITX ATC / 3 x to the power of gobbldygook.

It's a shame Intel are still focusing on making Quick-sync faster, rather than improving the encoring quality. It's currently about the same perceptual quality as x.264's "superfast" preset, and largely the same speed (check appendix 1). However, with quicksync fast-but-rubbish-mode is all you have, whereas at least you can vary the encoding quality of x.264 all the way up to lossless depending on how long you want to wait.

Considering there will be a mobile quadcore version of Ivy Bridge with a TDP of 35W they could easily make a 12 core version with a TDP no higher than that of a 6 Core SB-E.

But of course they won't do that, why?

Ivy Bridge is the low end - mid range cpu for 2012 from Intel, it is not supposed to be faster than the highend SB-E due soon or IB-E due later in 2012.

There is a big but though, that being the Xeon branded IB chips.

To bad the game dev's are not interested in using it simply because of the consoles.
