Marcus Yam served as Tom's Hardware News Director during 2008-2014. He entered tech media in the late 90s and fondly remembers the days when an overclocked Celeron 300A and Voodoo2 SLI comprised a gaming rig with the ultimate street cred.

    Thanks for the hard work :)

    Can Toms do a comprehensive benchmark for Intel's latest integrated solutions sometime in the future? I'm particularly interested the new HD (HSW based), 4400, 4600, 5000, 5100 (Iris) and 5200 (Iris Pro). They're starting to look more and more viable for light gaming in this day and age.

    Also, can their relative performance be added to the "Best Graphics Cards For The Money" hierarchy chart? I'm curious as to how well they stack up today.

    I'd also like this, too, really. Integrated graphics are becoming more and more relevant these days. Especially considering the new consoles are powered by an APU.

    I suppose there is difficulty in that performance is greatly affected by memory bandwidth, but there must be some way to come up with a generally useful metric for integrated graphics to be weighed against graphics cards. Maybe sticking with 8GB of 1600mHz RAM in dual channel, as I imagine that's what most people that bought/built computers recently would have.

    Short answer: They don't do all that well in gaming even against APUs, except for the 5000 series and above maybe.

    I play games on the Haswell HD graphics that my c720 Chromebook has. It runs League of Legends, Torchlight, Starcraft 2, most of Valve's source games, and many others at medium settings. Pretty champ for a $200 notebook and a Celeron chip. Those with HD 5000 graphics are even better and the Iris Pro is just a little bit under a GT 650M, which runs a lot of modern games perfectly on my Lenovo Y400.

    I'll use the best IGPU as of May 2014, as a reference point:

    AMD R7 7850K = 100%
    Intel Iris Pro 5200 (desktop/laptop) = 80%
    AMD Radeon HD 7660G = 60%
    AMD Radeon HD 7660D = 58%
    Intel Iris 5100 = 53%
    Intel HD 4600 (desktop) = 47%
    Intel HD 4600 (laptop) = 45%
    Intel HD 5000 = 43%
    Intel HD 4400 (desktop) = 33%
    Intel HD 4400 (laptop) = 32%
    Intel HD 4000 (desktop) = 31%
    Intel HD 4000 (laptop) = 29%
    Intel HD 4200 = 28%
    Intel HD 3000 (desktop) = 18%
    Intel HD 2500 = 17%
    Intel HD (Haswell, desktop) = 16%
    Intel HD 3000 (laptop) = 16%
    Intel HD (Ivy Bridge, desktop) = 15%
    Intel HD 2000 = 15%
    Intel HD (Haswell, laptop) = 14%
    Intel HD (Sandy Bridge, desktop) = 14%
    Intel HD (Ivy Bridge, laptop) = 13%
    Intel HD (Sandy Bridge, laptop) = 12%
    Intel HD (Bay Trail) = 10%
    Intel HD (Westmere, desktop) = 8%
    Intel HD (Westmere, laptop) = 5%

    The HD 5000 would perform better if it wasn't an ULV-processor-only IGPU.

    Thanks! out of curiousity, where's the source for this data?

    A combination of PassMark, Futuremark, Notebookcheck and my own research.

    I also forgot to mention the R7 7850K is capable of running Battlefield 4 @ 720p, 35 fps, and Minecraft on its highest settings (including render distance) at 40 fps, just as an idea of how the other solutions compare. Naturally, Intel IGPU performance will differ depending on the processor used and also on the power tier due to different frequencies of the IGPU, but the Iris Pro 5200 is offered at identical frequencies in both desktop and laptop processors.

    How come there are no benchmarks of the Maxwell 860m? Is it because laptops make it impossible to do a proper test bench for comparable results?
