Intel’s upcoming processors based on the 22 nm “Haswell” microarchitecture are due on 2 June 2013, and as with every new family of CPUs we’re getting the first leaked benchmarks about four months before release. Before us today is an engineering sample Haswell processor which is running at 2.60 GHz with a very low core voltage of 0.889V – a big step towards the lower power requirements Intel is aiming for with Haswell. The CPU in question was pitted against the current generation “Ivy Bridge” Core i7-3770K and “Vishera” AMD FX-8350, both of which were run at the same 2.60 GHz in order to give an accurate measure. The benchmark used was the popular Fritz Chess Benchmark.

The tests show that the Haswell Engineering Sample’s score of 10884 points puts it 9.86 % ahead of the Core i7-3770K’s score of 9907, and almost 25 % ahead of the AMD FX-8350’s score 8773. Considering the difference between Sandy Bridge (not shown, but 9823 points) and Ivy Bridge is only 84 points, the 977 point increase from Ivy Bridge to Haswell is huge. Of course this is only one benchmark, but time has shown that once the first set of benchmarks are out the rest follow quickly. Watch this space. Source — PC EVA, Source — AndandTech Forums
