Leaked slides from Intel Corp.’s documents reveal additional details about configurations on integrated graphics cores inside the next-generation Core i-series 4000-family “Haswell” microprocessors for notebooks. There will be three types of graphics cores inside future notebook microprocessors from Intel, each offering different level of performance.

For notebooks, Intel will offer three types of graphics cores: HD Graphics 5200 (40 execution units with on-package cache memory), HD Graphics 5100/5000 (40 execution units at different clock-speeds) and HD Graphics 4200/4400/4600 (20 execution units at different clock-speeds). High-performance notebooks will receive either HD Graphics 5200 or 4600, whereas ultrabooks will rely on HD Graphics 4200, 4400, 5000 or 5100, reports Chinese VR-Zone web-site based on the leaked slides.

Different graphics cores will be installed into different classes of microprocessors. For example, HD Graphics 5100 will be found inside chips carrying Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3 brands. By contrast, the highest-performing HD Graphics 5200 will only be found in select Core i7 offerings, such as Core i7-4950HQ Core i7-4850HQ, designed for highest-performing laptops, which will be available only in the second half of Q3 2013.


Intel integrated graphics core inside Haswell microprocessors, code-named Denlow, will not only offer considerably higher performance compared to its predecessor, but will also support new application programming interfaces (APIs), such as DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 3.2+ and OpenCL.

Intel did not comment on the news-story.

For how long can the GT3 run at 1300Mhz before it fries itself?

Long-enough to beat anything below a 7660G/8650G.

I find it somewhere between interesting and odd the max boost is right above the theoretical max for lower-power Trinity parts or the base clocks of the higher-end offerings. I wonder if they will finagle some scenario (IPC CPU intensive?) where the worst-case for AMD allows their iGPU to look decent.

um it will not beat a 7660G the GT3 is around 15% slower then a 7660G Trinity. and it certainly won't beat Richlands 8650G which is around 20% faster then the 7660G.

Intel make crap graphics... BUT they used to make a whole lot worse back in the day, at least they have made huge progress VS old intel HD

They still dont come close to AMD or Nvidia dollar for dollar! in the graphics department.
