    Nah, I'm not ignoring GT3- I'm just pointing out that better integrated graphics were necessary. Intel clearly agree, based on the big improvements that they've been making. :) I'm looking forward to seeing how Haswell does, and I already predict that NVidia will be out of all next-gen Apple products.

    Don't get too excited about the fact that GT3 is coming to tablets, though- it's going to be a big boost, no doubt about that, but it's not going to be as fast as the laptop versions. The current HD4000 performs pretty differently in high TDP and low TDP chips: http://www.anandtech.com/show/5878/...ation-realtime-igpu-clocks-on-ulv-vs-quadcore And in a 10W or lower chip, they'll have to bump it down again. So it's not going to do as well in a tablet as it would in a laptop. But it should still perform well, and I certainly imagine better than Temash. (I also expect it to be quite a lot bigger and more expensive than Temash, of course.)

    Thats a laugh MS worked hand in hand with AMD on 64bit. AT least it clear it was AMD and MS that kept the X86 bagage alive , Even tho VLIW is the future.

    Microsoft was forced to gamble on AMDs "hotfix" of x86. Imagine all legacy benefits gone. While still in an upper position, MS would essentially start from scratch.

    Nobody gonna bet the house if they can avoid it.

    x86 as such is also slowly being replaced inside out.

    There was a reason AMD bought ATI . It was because intel had already started working in this direction . Elbrus purchase was the sign of intels future direction and its almost fully implemented threw out intel compilers . Intel started work on using all transitors doing more with less . Soix is good at shouting down unused transitors , The real aim is to make those transitors useful so they don't have to shout down. Fewer transitors . Rather than more is better . Silvermont is already going with 8 core atoms for servers and that number will grow . Haswell at 7 watts will have alot of server use.
    I hoping airmont fineally brings intels dream to relization

    Is that supposed to be 7W or 10W or 13W? Looks like intel's PR is working as planned. Was Mooly Eden hiding off screen somewhere during the demo? :p Surely you'll understand if people don't take intel's word for their claims.

    Ok good points. But I doubt we will see iPad like Resolution on Windows tablets. I mean we all know how great classic windows (desktop) deals with this...text would be unusable tiny.

    He is probably driving the "dirt" formula-car behind the scenes :D.

    Actually, the DPI scaling works pretty well so long as applications are aware of it. Take a look at this lot (running Windows 8 on Retina Macbook Pro), notice how much the DPI scaling helps: http://www.anandtech.com/Gallery/Album/2080#1

    lol they almost got away with it once, I wouldn't be surprised if they tried it again. intel probably used a new lacky this time though, the very sight of Mooly's hat would be a dead give away. Hope you traced those wires Anand! :p

    We have seen demo of haswell running with GT3 @8 watts but you keep spreading your lies

    Erm, the Dirt 3 video? That is obviously not a "8watt" Haswell. That's the top of the line Haswell GT3 and eDRAM chip.

    I'm with Mightymalus on this one. That Nvidia 650m is a 45w TDP part. Impressive as it is, there's no way that's an 8w Haswell chip.

    Yeap, they used a desktop Haswell+eDRAM against a mobile GT650M and we havent even seen the frame numbers :rolleyes:

    The CPU used is most likely 37W or 47W.

    It wasn't a desktop Haswell, but it was the top end mobile haswell.

    I mean, it looks nice and all. But it ain't no "8watt". The 8watt haswell shown in IDF 2012 was only comparable(honestly, it seemed alil slower) to the IVB 15watt.

    AMD at least has more of a fighting chance for design wins with Temash and Kabini. Intel will be reluctant to release Haswell based Pentiums like they have done against Llano and Trinity. Even so, it will be very important that they break the cycle of shipping delays they've been caught in.

    I was unexpectedly impressed with the C-50/C-60 chips and it seems like these upcoming products might also impress.

    LOL, its true though. They shot their credibility in the foot on that one. I wouldn't trust a pre-packaged demo setup if I was asked to assess it. I hope Anand looked for woodscrews too ;)

    They used a desktop tower = better thermals = higher performance.

    This too ;).
    So to sum it up: solid performance(at unknown fps) on non-ULV part . Like others noticed probably 35+W model with GT3+eDRAM.

    YOU don't know this at all . Its what you want to believe because it smashes your agenda , We don't know leave it at that . We don't know that AMD was showing was real it could have been anything . We don't know . But if I was a betting man I would say that was not 2core soc/soix haswell . But it really doesn't matter . Intel graphics below 10 watts will run just as well as AMDs . Given what we know intelis better at low wattage
