Intel’s Haswell Chipset To Feature 2X More Integrated GPU Power Than Current Ivy Bridge CPU’s Offer

Gizmodo’s Eric Limer reports that Intel’s integrated graphics chipsets have taken plenty of heat over the years, most of it deserved, but the climb back to respectability that started back with Sandy Bridge is about to get a turboboost, with Intel’s new Iris integrated graphics with its soon to debut Haswell family of CPUs claimed to provide a 2x improvement to 3D performance over Intel’s current HD 3000, and HD 4000 that are incorporated into Ivy Bridge CPU cores.

Limer says Iris will come in two flavors: Intel Iris Graphics 5100, which you’ll find on the Intel 4th Gen Core i7-4000U series for ultrabooks, and Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 which will be making its appearance on H and R-series chips that’ll be packed into beefier laptops and all-in-one desktops respectively.
