    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.

    ?

    Intel benchmarked their top-end Haswells, of course. Which cost > 300$. If the top-end high-priced Haswell can match a $100 Richland, I would say AMD still has the price advantage.

    Most of the best graphics will go to mobile processors. AMD may make strong APU, but they probably won't be able to provide it at equaly low power consumption. The desktop BGA (R?) line with strongest Intel graphics is also not so demanding for power.

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

    leave it to intel to confuse the shit out of people,


    so let me get this straight, the IRIS thing that you get double performance will be only for the most expensive chips?

    the regular chips in i3's etc will only be ~20% faster?


    when are laptops with haswell coming out?

    Default Steambox candidate

    Could this have enough performance to be a steambox apu candidate? Dunno if intel is interested in that though.
