System and Futuremark Performance

While AMD's Enduro software is apparently still a mess on Intel-based systems, I actually found my only problem with it was messing with the interface to disable the MSI GX60's Radeon HD 7970M. For the purposes of isolating the A10-5750M's performance and giving it the best chance I could, I swapped in a second memory stick from the much maligned MSI GT70 Dragon Edition I recently reviewed and then disabled the 7970M.

PCMark 7 (2013)

PCMark 7 is always going to respond primarily to the storage system, so the GX60's SSD takes a bath. What we want to see are scores that more directly isolate the performance properties of the A10-5750M itself.

On the CPU side, we can see that Richland provides a healthy performance boost over Trinity. Only the first pass in our x264 benchmark doesn't show a notable jump, but the second pass boasts a remarkable 20% increase in performance. We're still some way from catching up to Haswell, much less Ivy Bridge, but I'll take the improvement where I can get it.

3DMark also continues to heavily favor AMD's on-die graphics, but while CPU performance got a healthy boost from Richland, the refresh doesn't move the needle on the graphics hardware nearly as much. It's generally improved apart from the odd results in the Cloud Gate test, but Richland's primary reason for being seems to be driving up CPU performance.

    It's only a joke or disappointment if your expectations have been set far too high.

    If you're *not* disappointed by desktop Haswell, I'd say your expectations are far too low.

    No, just knowledge what can be done and what are limitations of computing. (For converse example see GPU which increase performance by significant complexity; we all saw how that worked out with manufacturing and consumption...)

    Note: I know I am quite late, but too many people comment without understanding.

    "waste heat"

    Desktop Haswell IS a joke, it's clear Intel put very little effort into improving the desktop chips.

    Mobile Haswell is extremely impressive though, from a battery life point of view.

    Wow, that IGP is much worse than I thought it would be. Seems to be roughly 30-50% faster than the ULV HD 4000. That means that its roughly it is as powerful as mobile GT2 HD 4600 ( HD 4000 SV is about 30% faster than ULV HD 4000 and HD 4600 is about 20% faster than HD 4000).

    AMD needs to release a 45 watt tdp chip for larger performance notebooks.

    I was hoping to see some power consumption and temperature observations.

    You're disagreeing that desktop Haswell is a joke? Ivy was a bummer too but at least it brought some minor things like PCIe 3.0. Haswell has brought basically nothing to the table.

    I thought GT3e (-R) SKUs and AVX2 were pretty significant additions on the desktop. Intel has the highest performing desktop IGP. Isn't that news?

    Yes, the -K overclocking folk are probably better served with Ivy-E.

    When it costs an arm and a leg and isn't available, well, anywhere: no, it's not news. Well, I take that back: it may be news, but it's not *good* news.
