The Sisoft Sandra 2013 SP3a benchmark utility measures pretty much all of your system components, but we’ll be using it to focus on memory and CPU performance!
Results: The Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge processor had 27.8GB/s of memory bandwidth with our Corsair Dominator Platinum 2133MHz memory kit and CL9 timings. This is a solid number, but the Intel Core i7-4770K had 28.1GB/s of memory bandwidth with the same exact kit and XMP 1.3 profile. This is a 1.1% performance improvement, but we will take any improvement right? The AMD A10-5800K APU is also running the same dual-channel 2133MHz memory kit, but has just 16GB/s of memory bandwidth due to architecture differences.
Results: The Intel Core i7-4770K processor was much faster than the Intel Core i7-3770K in the Multi-Media test, which is likely to to the new Intel AVX2 instruction set. This is a large 58% performance improvement.
Results: All the new mainstream and high-end desktop processors support AES-NI and have pretty good Cryptographic Bandwidth numbers. The Intel Core i7-4770K was found to be 7% faster than the Core i7-3770K.
Results: In the CPU Arithmetic benchmark the Intel Core i7-4770K was found to be 7% faster than the Core i7-3770K processor.
So, for the most part the memory bandwidth is the same and general CPU performance is up by about 7% on Haswell compared Ivy Bridge. The only standout benchmark that we saw here on Sandra 2013 SP3a is the Multi-Media Processor test and that is mainly due to the new instruction set.
