[CNET] Intel's upcoming 'Haswell' chip primed for gaming - Page 4

post #31 of 42
Seems like a joke to me. I heard the 4600 graphics is 10-40% improvement over HD 4000 graphics depending on the title. It's still not gonna be maxing Crysis 3 anytime soon. I'd be more interested in desktop CPU performances and overclocking. Intel should really just keep that as the primary focus, if you're talking about gaming. Keep the IGP to the mobile side of things.

You're forgetting that there's far more mobile users than hard-core PC gamers. As such, it is in Intel's best interests to focus more resources on IGP and power efficiency than getting that last bit of top-end performance in the desktop space.

I'm not forgetting that. I mention the mobile segment in my post, and that's the only space that IGPs are useful for. Are you forgetting this is OCN?

Intel is screaming like as small baby when he remembers on the segment that can be eaten by NVidia.
I wonder, quad Tegra5, or Haswell for a desktop?

When will this CPU be released?

Guys come on, I though you were smarter than this... Obviously I'm wrong.

The iGPU on both AMD and Intel CPU's are in NO WAY designed to perform like a proper dedicated graphics card. That would just destroy the point in needing them!

They're designed to compete with AMD's and Nvidia's low end GPU's like the GT 5x0/6x0 and HD x4xx, x5xx, x6xx. Not for full 1080p gaming with all bells and whistles, current gen GPU's can't even do that properly most of the time alone.

It's great to see advancements like this in the iGPU. It will be more beneficial for the mobile consumers. Soon they won't need to buy a laptop with a dedicated Nvidia/AMD GPU to do the usual bidding. (Light games, HD video, on the fly transcoding etc) which will be much more cost effective.

Intel would love to kill NVidia market like that. But so far only GT3 looks like they can compete with AMD/NVidia medium end cards. Majority of desktop CPUs, and all K CPUs, would have GT2.
