Are you moving out of that office Ryan? That's a bummer, you guys just got it!

Could be a reason for the higher temperatures

A simple answer would be to pull the IHS off a chip like the 2600k and see if it has TIM or not.

That or remove the IHS off of an Ivy Bridge processor and put a cooler directly on the die.

Hey thank you, look forward to it.
Might make time to watch live.

Great Podcast as always guys, thanks.
I have a small comment for you all, and would appreciate the input.

While i do agree that the IVB temperatures are an issue. Especially if its getting that hot under water cooling. While i am still a bit new to this but, I have to say that it kinda makes sense that it gets so hot because of how its made. I keep thinking about that microscope picture of the Trigate vs Planar (unless its CGI)
(couldn't find a link from here)
If you look at the picture you can clearly tell that Trigate uses more physical space because of the the weaving, im also assuming that a current of some sort is going through all of the connecting parts. I didnt go to school for this stuff, but im assuming that has a lot to do with the temperatures.

What do you guys think? Am i just plain wrong or confused?

If anything, the trigates should lower temperature, since they lower leakage and resistance.

At least Nvidia writes and maintains their own graphics drivers for their GPUs. Intel seems to be Happy Letting cheepo Laptop OEM's MOD the generic Intel GPU HD graphics drivers, Which the CHEEPO laptop OEM's do and the CHEEPO laptop OEMs never update their MODDED Intel HD graphics drivers, and the Cheepo laptop's owners try to play a game that needs the graphic drivers updated, but Cheepo laptop's owners find that they can not update the Cheepo laptop's drivers at the Intel HD graphics update website because The Intel hd graphics drivers update can only update Intel genaric hd Graphics drivers, which leaves the cheepo laptop's owner at the mercy of the cheepo laptop OEM's, who never update their customized cheepo hd graphics drivers! Ah! AAh! AhAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Now that HD4000 has arrived, can OpenCL be used to enhance the performance of the Ivy Bridge processor while simultaneously using a discrete graphics processor? If OpenCL can utilize GPU cycles for general purpose compute tasks then It should be able to utilize the Intel integrated GPU for more general purpose processing power in addition to the Ivy bridge's other CPU cores, while the discrete GPU uses its resources for the graphics. OpenCL should see all the hardware on the computer as an available resource and It should be able to do this? If not then what is described as Heterogeneous computing has not completely arrived yet! Or is it just a matter of waiting for the software to catch up?
