Intel’s mobile Skylake chips to have Iris graphics

It is a well-known fact that Intel plans to launch the all-new Skylake processors by the end of this year but so far we have heard of the upcoming desktop models only. Now we have some news on the upcoming mobile Skylake processors too – they will feature the powerful Intel Iris graphics.

If this information is true the mobile Skylake chips with Iris graphics will outperform certain desktop Broadwell processors chips that come with the Intel HD 6000 GPU on-board such as the Core i7-5650U processor. Intel Iris is now featured in several 14 nm Broadwell chips, namely the dual-core Core i7-5557U, Core i5-5287U, Core i5-5257U and Core i3-5157U with 28W of TDP. In case you do not know, Iris, also known as Intel HD 6100, includes 48 execution units and runs at 1.1 GHz max, providing up to 845 GFLOPS, which is a lot for an integrated GPU.

The first mobile Skylake processors with TDP of 15W and Iris graphics will appear this fall. More mobile and desktop Skylake chips will follow in year 2016 and given the expected very low power consumption we may get the first fan-less notebooks and desktop PCs in decades.
