Not necessarily. Remember that, for example, NVIDIA and AMD have different shader counts, the big difference is how much work each shader does. If each shader got a significant performance boost, given how Rasterization scales well, you can easily expect an exponential performance increase.
Granted, I want numbers, but given how it apparently gets performance somewhere in the neighborhood of the GT650, is a promising sign.
got it. but the leaks/rumors that i've seen don't show any significant change/improvement in individual shader design. seemed like haswell will have similar igpu design as ivy bridge and haswell gt3 only getting higher number of them .... according to my rather limited knowledge on design..
in the gt3 vs 650m demo, intel kept the gt3 build inside a desktop chasis. now, if it was the same stunt amd pulled (trinity laptop hidden in a dt case running multi monitor), intel coulda just shown the innards. it seemed more like gt3 gets really hot on load and needs more aggressive cooling to perform similarly to gt650m.i noticed that no one seemed to be actively interested in what's inside the case.
still this could be very good news for intel based performance all in one pcs.
