    Default Intel Haswell To Boost Graphics Performance 2~3x

    Phoronix: Intel Haswell To Boost Graphics Performance 2~3x

    Ahead of the official Haswell launch in early June, Intel released more details yesterday concerning the expected graphics performance out of the Ivy Bridge successor...

    If this is true the successor to AMD's Trinity better be faster than what initial benchmarks have shown (or the chips ought to be way cheaper than initially indicated).

    Default OpenGL 4.0?

    Too bad, no OpenGL 4.3 support.

    Don't you complain about the NVIDIA driver too ? It's the only driver which has OpenGL 4.3 right now.

    Back on topic, the performance boost of the IGP depends on the IGP, a lot. An HD 4600 will be faster by 2-32 % (3770K vs 4770K), according to Tom's Hardware, and you'll find an HD 4600 on most desktop CPUs.

    HD 5000/5100/5200 will be insanely expensive as usual and are only for the BGA (CPU soldered to the motherboard) and mobile market.

    Hoo boy, leave it to Intel to make confusing product names. Their codenames are always so much simpler to understand... Also, people should really stop writing "HD ****", as it's actually "HD Graphics ****"; the former nomenclature is used by AMD, so it gets really confusing now. At least use "HDG ****".

    So, if it ends up being 3 times better in performance than HDG 4000, then it should be somewhere close in performance to an HD 5570. That's a pretty impressive leap, considering that HDG 4000 is similar to 9500 GT or HD 3670.

    ?????????? Todays Intel HD 4000 is as fast as a Radeon6600 with 400 shaders and half a teraflop.

    OpenGL 4.0 support is only for their Windows driver. Linux will be lucky to see OpenGL 3.3 support before the end of the year.

    It's still a mystery to me if OpenGL support has to do with hardware capabilites or if it's just a driver thing.

    Both. You get the lowest version both support.

    OpenGL 3.3 is definitely going to be finished this year, at least for the Intel driver.
