Advantages of Haswell CPU?

My htpc bit the dust. Froze and then had a burning smell.CPU was an i3-550. I'm going to get a haswell Pentium from micro center and a new board.

Can anyone link me to one of Rene's awesome charts that show the new features of haswell chips compared to previous gen as it relates to htpcs. Or maybe there's a thread. I'm not having much luck searching thanks.

Haswell features better efficiency and power consumption, increased work per clock cycle, and the iGPU deals better with frame rates (one dropped frame every 11 days ) as compared to socket 1155 chips.

You don't need a chart there isn't really anything better so that's all you need to know.

Are the HD intel graphics able to handle some light madvr action? Don't need fancy post processing.

I'll be getting it either way just curious as I haven't kept up with things like I used to.

Yeah, get a chip with HD4600 and a mobo that overclocks. Overclock the iGPU, you should get a decent result with movies (film) that is only 24fps.

Video at 1080p is harder but not as common. Step down settings for video.

I guess I didn't create such charts. Even Celeron G1840 can handle madVR DXVA2 up to 1080i/p, with precise 23.976Hz clock.

Theres the man. Thanks for the input Rene. Thats what I wanted to hear. Micro center has the pentium for the same price that newegg sells the celeron so may as well get the pentium. They actually have the unlocked pentium for $10 more but not sure I will ever OC it. I guess I wouldn't regret it down the line.
