If you have **Haswell** and **Ivy Bridge** systems you could easily evaluate their **real** performance and you need to use a **Vec_samples.zip** sample from Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013.

## Haswell GFLOPS

Hi Intel Experts:

I cannot find the latest Intel Haswell CPU GFlops, could you please let me know that?

I want to understand the performance difference between Haswell and Ivy-bridge, for example, i7-4700HQ and i7-3630QM. From Intel website, I could know i7-3630QM's GFlops is 76.8 (Base). Could you please let me know that of i7-4700HQ?

I get some information from internet that:

Intel SandyBridge and Ivy-Bridge have the following floating-point performance: 16-SP FLOPS/cycle --> 8-wide AVX addition and 8-wide AVX multiplication.

Intel Haswell have the following floating-point performance: 32-SP FLOPS/cycle --> two 8-wide FMA (fused multiply-add) instructions

I have two questions here:

1. Take i7-3632QM as an example: 16 (SP FLOPS/cycle) X 4 (Quad-core) X 2.4G (Clock) = 153.6 GFLOPS = 76.8 X 2. Does it mean that one operation is a combined addition and multiplication operation?

2. Does Haswell have TWO FMA?

Thank you very much for any comments.

Best Regards,
