    Intel HD2500 Ivy Bridge IGP benchmarked

    The HD2500 is the IGP which most IB CPUs will contain:

    Scores might improve with newer drivers.

    Here are some scores in the same benchmarks for the A4-3400:

    The HD4000 has 16 EUs whereas Anandtech suspects the HD2500 has 8 EUs.

    Re: Intel HD2500 Ivy Bridge IGP benchmarked

    I doubt drivers will make that much of a difference, it's still the same gpu, just dx11 a couple more streams and a bit faster on the core.

    I saw a report somewhere else of some "leaked" numbers it put the 4000 at nearly twice the performance of the 3000.
    Which would mean it's around the same level as Llano.

    The main way that performance gets speed up by new drivers is by careful tweaking of specific calls, generally by careful reduction in quality performance gains can be made.

    The HD2500 is very close in performance to an HD3000:

    http://www.guru3d.com/article/core-i...600k-review/19

    Look at the 3DMarkVantage scores(1150 for HD2500 and 1295 for the HD3000).

    Anandtech has mentioned that the HD4000 has 16 EU so if double the scores you will have around 2300 to 2600 points in 3DMarkVantage.

    Looking at the second review,this is between the A4-3400 and the A6-3650. The A4 scores 2200 points and the A6 2600 points. Basically it means DX10 performance is between the 160 shader and 320 shader AMD IGPs.

    However,it is the 3DMark11 scores which look quite low for the HD2500. Even doubling the DX11 performance would place in the same ball park as the A4-3400 IGP.

    If the leaks of AMD increasing IGP speed by 30% across the range are true,then even the IGP in the Trinity A4 CPUs will probably be as quick as the top-end HD4000 IGP.

    Re: Intel HD2500 Ivy Bridge IGP benchmarked

    Yep that's what it's looking like, intel's IGP is getting better but still falling behind the AMD IGP
    And the HD4000 is only on the top end i7's for some bizarre reason, if you can afford an i7 then you can afford a decent graphics card.

    So it's really not idea for an HTPC or similar, granted they are probably going to perform better cpu wise than the AMD but again for HTPC you don't need massive cpu power and balance between cpu&gpu is better.

    The Llano really should be sewing up the HTPC and home internet&basic games pc market.

    Re: Intel HD2500 Ivy Bridge IGP benchmarked

    Looking at the Chinese review of the A4-3400,it seems WoW can run fine at 1440X900 which is not that bad considering the CPU is around £50. There was also a Chinese MMO tested which also ran well at 1440X900. DiRT3 and the Call of Duty:Black Ops were running at 30FPS at the same resolution. If the Trinity A4 IGP is 20% to 30% faster then it will be around the A6-3650 in performance.

    Now,I know why 50% of the AMD Fusion sales are supposedly in China - it will run plenty of MMO games at reasonable settings.

    Re: Intel HD2500 Ivy Bridge IGP benchmarked

    It's a shame that the IGP of IB won't be able to match that of it's AMD rival but that's great for competition I guess. I'm surprised I've managed to stick with my G620 without any problems other than the IGP being a bit too weak, even for casual gaming.
