Re: Haswell vs Ivy Bridge Benchmarked Compared Clock-for-Clock
Haswell introduces AVX2,FMA3,BMI2, and TSX. Don't expect much from legacy programs but it should give a big increase to optimized programs.

Thats assuming the developers properly optimize.
Still thats a good point. the IPC boost may not be much, and the igp may be useless to most of us here, but there are other features that could entice us to upgrade.
