Some more info on Broadwell’s graphics

As you know yesterday Intel officially presented its latest 14 nm Broadwell CPU generation, currently available as mobile processors only. We wrote of the new chips’ specifications but new information has surfaced and this time it touches the integrated GPUs in the Broadwell family.

The mobile Broadwell generation (and likely the desktop versions too) uses several integrated GPUs – Intel HD graphics, Intel HD 5500, Intel HD 6000 and Intel Iris 6100. As it happens the simplest GPU – Intel HD graphics with 12 execution units will be used in entry-level Celeron and Pentium processors, the HD 5500 GPU with 24 execution units will be used in Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors (Core i3-5010U and Core i3-5005U use Intel HD 5500 graphics with just 23 execution units!), while the high-end Intel HD 6000 graphics and Intel Iris 6100 will be used in high-end Core i5 and Core i7 Broadwell models and in the Intel Core i3-5157U chip.

This is what we know so far. What do you think of the new chips?
