15% in one synthetic benchmark that is compiled to favor your arch is nothing. Skylake and Kaby Lake are less than 1% apart in IPC, and just a few days ago during an intel keynote an engineer stated that they are internally the same arch. The Kaby Lake core *is* Skylake only with some hardware bugs fixed.
Intel stating that their new arch will be another 15% uplift in the same synthetic bench is saying that they have nothing. 15% uplift in Sysmark is actually fucking nothing.

Well to be fair, dozens to hundreds of people work on designing a core arch. It could have been pure coincidence that so many things Keller worked on turned out to be stunning, even industry changing. So I can see why some people would doubt his ability to single handedly impact the outcome of an entire design team. The layman sees him as something of a rockstar for IC design.
You look at the track record of things he was involved with, and eventually it can't be coincidental, theres too many wins under his belt. Hes just a gifted guy, and probably a type A personality who demands the best from the people around him too.

Its not quite the same, but Steve Jobs is an apt example. Jobs himself wasn't necessarily talented. What Jobs did was be an angry fuck who demand the best from the workforce. Fucking up wasn't an option or you'd pay for it.
I get the feeling that Keller is probably the same type, though I doubt he has the same autistic temper that Jobs had.

Best case scenario for benchmarks are in engine game benchmarks, or 3d/2d test scenes

or real world product demos

realistically, these are the only things that accurately show off a cpu, as synthetics have a tendency to give you best case scenario, not the what every program ACTUALLY functions like.

True, but it means that IPC starts mattering less if you can make it up with more cores. Very reason why intel itself is starting to push up to 8. Its the future, just like duo cores were the future.

They just divided the benchmark score by the number of cores, which shows fuck all in terms of single-core performance. Notice that all the 8 core CPUs do worse than 4 core ones, even if you only look at the Intel results. Basically the benchmark doesn't scale 100% across Intel or AMD cores, which is obvious.

Single-core performance is generally higher than Kaby Lake judging by the Passmark results posted by PC Gamer.

Of course Geekbench is relevant, what better way to test 100w+ cpus than by using a benchmark designed for chips with a sub 10w performance envelope. I mean geekbench was relevant when really early zen leaks came from it and showed horrifically bad performance.

That said geekbench was automagically not relevant again when leaks had kabylake regressing severely against skylake. Funny how that works.

Its a factor into why the bulldozer design did so poorly - its moar coars/less IPC was (again, in simplistic terms) a move to get more throughput will saving on die space. It was a design never aimed at typical desktop workloads but was aimed at getting huge numbers of "fast enough" cores/threads onto small (within context) server dies.

Its why the Opterons are sort of okay but the version us mere mortal had available really were only any good with mental clocks - but its a complex issue as to how and why bulldozer went wrong and no single thing is the root cause.

pcie and nvme drives benefit largely from recording and how fast the files can be fed, especially if you record in the highest semi reasonable quality (lagarith lossless codec) that can easily bottleneck slower write speeds and when feeding a video editor does make a perceivable difference.

But what I mean with future is different, at some point nvme drives will cost the same as a sata or barely a premium at all to it. Its much the way I believe 8k or 8k+ will happen, the tech to do it, the tech to push it, and the tech to manufacture it will all come down to the point that there is virtually no premium.

Synthetic benchmarks are a way of testing a processor at its peak load so that you can compare it to another processor. The arbitrary scores you get in a benchmark won't tell you how well it will perform without a reference point.

the fact that 4.0/4.2 is only 21% ahead of 3.15-3.3 (they barely saw 3.3 as it stands closer to 3.2) should be a bit telling.
