Phoronix: Intel Los Lunas 2, Ivy Bridge Details
As the latest chapter of the pre-launch Intel Ivy Bridge story, here's some details on Intel's Ivy Bridge reference motherboard, the Los Lunas 2 with the Panther Point chipset. There is also some cpuinfo data on one of the forthcoming Ivy Bridge models.
Wow pasting /proc/cpuinfo and lspci information
What's next publishing the patches from mailing lists for us to parse through?
CPU flag forAVX2 ?
One of the reasons I care about Sandy Bridge is its fused-multiple-add instruction (FMA). I assumed Intel was going to designate the presence of that instruction with an "AVX2" cpu flag. But that flag wasn't present in Phoronix's dump of "/proc/cpuinfo".
Anyone know what the tell-tale flag is going to be for the FMA instruction?
AVX2 and FMA3 will come next year with Haswell.

And collected info from lsusb, lshw, dmesg, dmidecode, etc.
I'm sure that's where Michael got the information from - so there's probably some poor sap at Intel getting kicked around the office for publishing the info

im in the market for a few Ivy Bridge and will probably be looking to recommend them in time if there's a substantial improvement but until i see a real life 2012 x264 720/1080P test ill reserve judgement, and yet again i ask for a full x264 supplied "checkasm --bench" , as that would be a very good option to add to the Phoronix standard tests too.
