We're hard at work on our in-depth Haswell review, but it's not finished just yet. Since Intel's press embargo has lifted, we thought we'd give you a taste of what's in store. Here's a quick look at how two Haswell processors—the Core i7-4770K and its Iris-infused i7-4950HQ sibling—compare to, well, everything.
The results are from only one benchmark, but they give us a sense of where Haswell sits in a sea of 36 processors dating back to 2005. We've come a long way since the Pentium Extreme Edition 840. That CPU is about eight times slower than the Core i7-4770K in Cinebench's multithreaded test.
We'll have much more to share with you soon. Stay tuned.
