Intel has officially launched their 14nm Broadwell Desktop CPUs at Computex 2015, with an increased focus on integrated graphics. All CPUs in the Intel Broadwell lineup wil have a TDP of 65W or under, so do not expect top end performance out of these chips, not to say that they are not impressive in their own right.

Intel with this launch are focusing on their new Iris pro graphics, which now take up over 50% of Intel's CPU die. Intel have only one disadvantage to their competitor AMD and that is on the graphics side, making that the place where Intel needs to improve on to ensure continued market dominance.

  Intel now have a graphics component inside their CPUs which actually offers passable gaming performance, being able to play games such as League of Legends, World of Warcraft and Heroes of the Storm with ease. Intel's increase in graphics performance also allows them to gain a lot of extra performance in certain productivity related workloads.

Broadwell will only be coming in 2 flavors on the Desktop, at least in the socketed platforms.The i7-5775C will be Intel's Broadwell Quad core hyper threaded part which will have a Core clock speed of 3.3GHz and a boost Frequency of 3.7GHz, the i5-5675C will be Intel's Quad core 4 threaded part, which will have a core frequency of 3.1GHz and a bost frequency of 3.6GHz.

Both will be compatible with Intel's current Z97 platform and will feature unlocked multipliers and will use Intel's Iris pro 6200 Graphics. The Broadwell i7 has a MSRP of $366 and the i5 will have a MSRP of $276. 

Intel's Broadwell is targeted at low power environments, where space and thermal dissipation are the main limitations. While these chips are unlocked, it is recommended that you wait for Intel's Skylake and Z100 chipset if you are looking for some real performance parts.

 

You can join the discussion on Intel's Broadwell CPUs and anything Computex 2015 on the OC3D Forums.

Intel just gets better and better with their naming scheme Quote

Hi guys. What do you think about the graphics? Are they better than AMD's APUs? At a certain point this year I'll have to upgrade my father's PC, since he doesn't do any hard core gaming, he can pass with integrated graphics. They're still great CPU and he should benefit more in this way. What's the iGPU performance if I try playing something like Borderlands on fullhd.Quote

Probably still worse than an APU for graphical performance.Quote

Amd has better graphic performance on their apus, but intel is much more energy effiecient, mostly because of their cpu cores being better. That is actually why the vast majority of laptops come with intel igpus. Now, if you are planning to buy a desctop apu, definately go with amd, since they announced that they will take advantage of dx12, in order to have both the apu's igpu and the dgpu active at the same time. I would prefer to wait though for am3 to come since its going to be the platform amd will be using for all of their future apus AND cpus ( which means its going to have better support, and all future products will be released in that platform ). IMO, a a107870k ( or whichever the top apu at that time will be) and a 390x will be a killer combination.Quote

Well, actually I already have a gaming PC, I'm just trying to find something that would work for my father for the next 5 years or so. I have doubts around AMD's CPU part and it's not that I'm seeking for top tear graphical performance, then I would get a proper GPU. I just like the fact that I could give him a nice CPU that will be future compatibile.Quote
