Intel HD Graphics (Haswell)

Intel HD Graphics (Haswell)

The Intel HD Graphics (Haswell) is an integrated graphics card in the Haswell codenamed processors (Celeron and Pentium). It is the successor the the Intel HD Graphics in the Ivy Bridge CPUs and performs slightly better. Depending on the processor model, the base and turbo clock rates may differ, resulting in varying graphics performance between CPU models.

In comparison to the HD 4000, the graphics core has been modified extensively. The GPU supports DirectX 11.1, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.0. It also features an improved decoder for 4K videos and the fast Quick Sync encoder (deactivated in many entry level models).

The Performance of the HD Graphics (Haswell) is similar to the old HD Graphics 3000 or the AMD Radeon HD 8250. Only a few modern games like Dota 2 can be played fluently in very low details and resolutions.

Due to the 22nm 3D Tri-Gate production process, the power consumption should be relatively low (the development was focused on performance per Watt). The GPU can be found in ULV models and regular (37 W) dual core CPUs.
