    There is more to see in those benchmarks than just the KBL short commings. Did anyone notice the ridiculously high difference in performance between the i7-4770K and i7-4790K in some games? ET Legacy runs nearly twice as fast on the 4790K. The CPU core of the 4790K clocks up to 500 MHz higher than the 4770K's. GPUs and scaling govenor are identical. No way a max. 500MHz Turbo boost can do that! This definately is worth a closer look as well!

    Thanks totoz, already the first link helps me to know that Sandy Bridge came before Haswell, it helps to understand the chronology in some articles here.

    Now there's also the gen6, gen7, gen8 that I'll need to decipher. This marketing naming maze can be quite redundant some time.

    Edit:
    This wikipedia article seems to list the intel gpu generations: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ocessing_units
    But now there is still the link between the marketing name ("Sandy Bridge", etc) and the generations.

    It seems they don't understand how small do we care about these names, we just want to have a scale from low-end to high-end. Having to choose between 10 CPU/APU just for the same generation, and having 3 or 4 generations on the market at the same time is pure intellectual masturbation (if you ask me). I thought marketing guys would have understood, since a decade of Apple rising and PC desktop falling, that consumers want a bit of simplicity in this world (and I'm not talking about going all Apple, which is as ludicrous but in the other side of the spectrum), but merely be reasonable with the offer.

    Wikipedia can help you, although I don't think there is a page listing all CPU names with a microarchitecture name:
    - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...oarchitectures
    - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...icroprocessors
    - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...icroprocessors
    - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skylak...roarchitecture)
    - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaby_Lake
    and more...

    If you're looking for 3D in xf86-video-intel, you're totally wrong. Mesa, libdrm, the kernel ans alikes are better places. Another culprit for your message would be to determine the last driver. Since there is no 3.0 release for some years, we should all know intel stopped supporting linux at all....

    Huh? Can you clarify what you are saying?

    No, because all tests were done with xf86-video-modesetting and the DDX driver anyhow doesn't have that much impact on 3D perf.

    Maybe it is slower , even on Windows i think watched some gaming scenes slower on 7600K than on 6600K with dGPU also... who knows what that video was something random can't find it now on GTAV or something...

    Smells like bios issues, but who knows.
