Re: Haswell vs Ivy Bridge Benchmarked Compared Clock-for-Clock

said by koitsu:

but I rarely upgrade my CPUs these days purely based on getting a performance boost.

THAT is a great point. I don't need increased CPU performance at this time. Lower TDP, and a much better GPU would be appreciated.

At the moment, the biggest issue for me is the 4000 GPU is almost good enough for stand along gaming. Work on the GPU, and eliminate the need to buy a video card, and I'll be upgrading just about everything (assuming increased GPU performance still lowers total TDP compared to a discrete GPU).
