Report: Haswell Included GT3e IGP Will Perform Like GT640

The folks over at VR-Zone have managed to get ahold of one of Intel's slides regarding the HD Graphics lineup. Based on what it shows, the performance that we can expect from some of the IGP might actually be good. According to the slide, the best Intel HD Graphics part, the HD 5200 (GT3e), might actually slightly outperform the GT640.

What we already know is that the HD 5200 GPU, otherwise known as the GT3e part, would reside in a number of mobile Haswell CPUs as well as three of the desktop Haswell CPUs. The Desktop CPUs that will carry this GT3e part will be named with an "*R", as can be seen in the list below. Not only this, but the "*R" named CPUs will likely have a BGA (Ball Grid Array) socket instead of the LGA (Land Grid Array) socket.

Core / Threads
Base / Turbo
L3 Cache
Core i7-4770R4 / 83.2 / 3.9 GHz6 MBHD 52001300 MHz65 W?
Core i5-4670R4 / 43.0 / 3.7 GHz4 MBHD 52001300 MHz65 W?
Core i5-4570R4 / 42.7 / 3.2 GHz4 MBHD 52001150 MHz65 W?

The mobile parts that will make use of the GT3 (not necessarily the better GT3e) are listed below. All of these chips are likely to be used only in Ultrabooks.

  • Core i3-4158U (5100, GT3)

  • Core i5-4250U (5000, GT3) 

  • Core i5-4258U (5100, GT3)

  • Core i5-4288U (5100, GT3)
  • Core i7-4550U (5000, GT3)
  • Core i7-4558U (5100, GT3)

So far, this is all we know. While we're waiting for Computex, be sure to have a look at our rumor roundup of all the rumors and facts that we know regarding the Haswell CPUs.

    Intel HD Graphics LEADERSHIP? Don't make me laugh.

    Keep in mind, Sakkura, the next lineup of APUs is supposed to do incredible things.

    Intel HD Graphics Leadership is an odd title! When have Intel taken the lead in graphics, ever?
