The new family of processors Sandy Bridge have advantages in consumption thanks to integrated Intel HD GPUs. His performance is up to 50% better than its predecessor. The manufacturer will incorporate number will grow
The first benchmarks made with the new Intel chips Ivy Bridge yielded the expected results and confirmed the improvements announced on predecessor Sandy Bridge, which benefit ultrabooks market.
The specialized site Anandtech was commissioned to carry out the first tests and although in terms of CPU performance advances are around an increase of between 5 and 15% in the best cases, advances are focused on consumption and graphics performance thanks to the new integrated Intel HD GPUs.
The tests performed showed that the GPU HD 4000 Intel integrated Ivy Bridge equipped with an increase in yield between 20 and 50% compared with the results obtained by Sandy Bridge.
This will affect a greater capacity for processing the second generation Ultrabooks. Compared to previous generation Intel expects to ship 50% more units in the first two months, marking a very high adoption among manufacturers and assemblers.
According to the results obtained in benchmarks, Ivy Bridge TESV obtained: 46.2 Skyrim a score of a total of 70, compared to 31.9 points previous chip.
This expands the possibilities in the field graph of any equipment that incorporates the new Intel CPUs, but stay away from Radeon units integrated into AMD's APU. Tests HD 4000 Intel ranked fourth against other GPUs like AMD Radeon HD 5570, NVIDIA GeForce GT 440 or Radeon HD 6550D, all teams focused on moderate drinking.
