To help quantify the performance impact on today’s laptops using 4th generation Intel processors (e.g. Haswell), we worked with Intel’s performance group and have just published a Solution Brief on the subject. Understandably, end users prefer that technology solutions do not harm productivity and from what we have seen utilizing an industry benchmark called SYSmark2012, the performance impact to an end user is negligible. Also, the boot-up times and added times when closing the laptop lids (to enter standby) aren’t too shabby either!

 

The Solution Brief is available here:
