First Photo of Intel Core i7 “Haswell” with High-Performance HD Graphics 5200 Leaks to Web.
I have not seen any good OpenCL comparisons between Intel APUs and AMDs APUs and also with how these compare to a decent discrete graphics card from AMD or nVidia but not in artificial synthetic benchmarks but in real world software like WinZip, Adobe and Handbrake. I know a real graphics card would have much greater potential than the tiny APUs on the processor but I don't believe there is much software out there that uses OpenCL and still isn't CPU limited. From what I understand, although GPGPUs has the ability to be so much faster than a CPU there just isn't much software out there that can or certainly is able to take advantage of this power so even OpenCL software like Handbrake will still be CPU limited for a long time to come.
I am fairly sure there won't be an LGA desktop chip with the full 40 APUs. I am not talking about the GT3e I am talking any GT3 series.
More hidden failure of every intel Integrated aka GMA/GT graphics is that their driver that "should support" all these wonderful features are in fact trailing chip itself for 18-36 month. And most of "Intels graphics" are "well performers" just because Intel cut out routines that maximally eliminate large bunch of eye-candy feature you'd expect every GPU since DX9.0c would support.
