Rumour: Ivy Bridge to have 77W TDP

A few authentic-looking screenshots reveal details of Intelís next-generation Ivy Bridge processor

I wish AMD could learn from Intel... my lovely SB's are going to be outpaced in such a short time

I hope my Z68 board supports them.
I love my 2500k to death but if something killer comes out its nice to know that I can upgrade.

Amen to that.

Only just bought mine and a 2500k and to be honest I'm more than happy with its performance, even at stock but if it was possible at a later date to drop an Ivy bridge chip straight in then that would be awesome.

TDP != actual power consumption. Honestly I expect there to be higher turbo thresholds, maybe a revamped turbo design and some other "gimicks" to improve single thread performance. That said, I can't imagine that with a 77w TDP, if accurate, that there isn't going to be a fairly large increase in core saturated frequency. It'd be cool to see top part frequencies to hit or exceed 4Ghz, especially with a rumored/claimed increase of 4-8% in IPC through some minor architecture tweaks.

Power savings, a good whack of frequency increase, a slight IPC improvement and a much, much better GPU and this thing sounds like a screamer of a desktop chip and even better in a lot of ways as a laptop part!

Revision on my above comment, the new TDP doesn't mean that the actual power savings will only be 19%, just that that is the new thermal cap on the chip, the actual power savings might be a lot larger than that, meaning lower frequency increases. Though I hope as a desktop part Intel is going to balance frequency and power savings and lean a bit more toward a frequency increase this time around.

Now the laptop parts, I'd take the minor IPC improvements, much better GPU and hold the line on frequencies or only a very slight bump in the name of saving a lot more power.

The 19% decrease in TDP doesn't translate to a possible 23% increase of clockspeed as these two are not linear.

So a 5-10% increase in clockspeed, would be much more reasonable with the 19% decrease in TDP. That's still very good, as we would be talking about a base-frequency of 3.8GHz and a 4+GHz turbo.

I wish I could get an Ivy Bridge chip for my X58.
Can't really complain about the i7 920 though, still serving me well at 1.5v... somehow.

I've been planning to drop some cash on a Sandy Bridge laptop soon, but I'm wondering now if it'd better to wait for IB and hope for it to either neatly replace mobile SB or to cause a pricedrop on existing mobile SB systems.
Does anyone have any thoughts on that?

Im holding out for Ivy Bridge before i upgrade, got alot of power to cram in a small space...If all the hype is correct these chips look tasty! Om nom nom!

I think people are right when they say the TDP is the maximum draw.
Means nothing is the chip is dog awefull at managing power when idling etc.
I guess the only way we will know is when benchmarks appear.

I doubt it will be "dog aweful" at managing power when idle.

Yes, that rocks. I just picked mine up to replace my "sub par" P67 UD4 board.
This board already overclocks more than the UD4 could and its in a much smaller package.

Will there be a downside to using the older chipsets?

77W TDP for a flagship chip sounds awesome -- sound like loads of mileage on not a lot of vcore.

Well, that's a difficult-to-understand multi-coloured chart, but does it show an enthusiast K-series (unlocked) i7 CPU with "8-threads" ? Is this what we more normally call a core or is it just 4 cores with hyperthreading?
