Takes the crown Intel integrated graphics performance

Takes the crown Intel integrated graphics performance

Today launched its new family of microprocessors Core fourth generation “Haswell” , and although including microprocessors highlight Core i7-4770K “Haswell-DT” and “Haswell-H”, the latter variant equipped with Pro 128MB EDRAM and fourth level (L4), posing as graphically more powerful variant of the new chips released by Intel.

Intel promised that their new IGP Iris Pro 5200 would provide a performance that would triple that of current 4000 Core Microprocessors equipped in third “Ivy Bridge”, claims that thanks to a review conducted by Anandtech can check.

The Intel Core i7-4950HQ consists of four cores running at 2.6GHz (3.6GHz in Turbo mode), capable of carrying up to eight processing threads thanks to HyperThreading technology, and is equipped with the IGP Iris Pro 5200, made for 40 EUs (160 shader processors) and EDRAM with 128MB 512-bit bus, which acts as a cache of a fourth level (L4) to increase and GPU performance.

Without further ado, here are some of the tests performed by Anandtech:

The Intel IGP Pro Graphics Iris 5200 “GT3E” shows 86.6% graphics performance than the Intel HD Graphics 4000 IGP, which is an improvement but consistent performance is far superior 200% Intel offered. While doing some overclock with the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility is possible to increase the graphics performance to almost double the performance of HD Graphics 4000.

Although Iris Pro Graphics 5200 performance did not meet 200% higher than promised, yet is crowned as the most powerful IGP market, surpassing even AMD’s A Series APU (but need to see how to behave with the new APU Richland) .

We recommend reviewing the full review Anandtech.
