Intel's Iris Technology Will Get You Excited About Integrated Graphics
MaximumPC.com reports that while nobody brags about integrated graphics, and that’s because there’s not much there worthy of boast. That’s fine, but if manufactures insist on pushing thin and light platforms on the masses and shrinking the desktop, then is it too much to ask for an integrated graphics solution that either (A) doesn’t suck, or (B) is better than just serviceable? Intel doesn’t think so, and its Iris graphics might be just what the market needs.
Intel Iris graphics will be available on select SKUs of the chip maker’s 4th Generation Core processor line (Haswell) and will offer up to 2X the 3D performance of today’s fastest mobile Intel HD Graphics solutions, the company claims.
