Intel Core Graphics have been a perennial loser. Although in recent years have made great progress, but compared to dazzle on the content of each slide on Intel, is still far less. Even so, it can not also hinder naughty down generation to generation.

Intel core Graphic was also a great leap forward! So you believe it? 

End of the year, we will celebrate the next generation of 14nm Broadwell processors, mainly for notebook platforms, only a few paragraphs on the desktop version of the K series. In addition to new technology, new enhanced CPU, GPU core will have to improve substantially the full range involving 3D graphics, multimedia, display output, API, user interface, and so on.

Broadwell nuclear noticeable will be the eighth generation Intel GPU graphics architecture (Haswell is about seven generations and a half),  the number of execution units (EU) will increase by 20% compared to now, GT2, GT3, respectively 24, 48.

Performance Optimization improvements include: increased variety of GPU cache capacity, enhance the Hi-Z / tessellation performance, improve the pixel fill rate, hardware, native support for multi-sample anti-aliasing 2xMSAA.

Broadwell will use open source VP8 decoder to achieve full hardware decoding of VP8 video format. Haswell was added scalable video codec (SVC) will be upgraded to support a higher standard of High Profile, and remove some of the basic restrictions, supports any video resolution and cropping.

As for the new H.265 format is not fully supported, since the fourth quarter of 2013 the standard was fully determined, then Broadwell’s architecture has been designed, and then have to wait for the next generation of Skylake.

GT3 will add additional circuitry to further accelerate the Quick Sync video transcoding.

But in the video pre-processing, post-processing, there will not be anything new.

The display controller will increase the frequency on the part of the interface, which supports higher display resolution. H series processors eDP 1.3, DP 1.2 output supports up to 4096 × 2304 @ 60Hz, U, Y series can achieve 3840 × 2160 @ 60Hz, 4K meet all needs, but pay attention to the Y series can only support a single screen at this time, And this time the power consumption will increase.

At the same time, LVDS, VGA output modes are two kinds of ancient completely removed, leaving only the pure digital output.

In order to reduce the power consumption of the display section, Intel increased the panel self-refresh, low power single line, two new technologies.

Interface API, Broadwell core was to continue to support DirectX 11.1, the OpenCL 1.2, some models can support OpenCL 1.2, OpenGL 4.2.
