Intel Xeon E3-1200 family features integrated graphics

Posted on Monday, April 11 2011 @ 00:06:10 CEST by

Bright Side of News reports Intel's newly released Xeon E3-1200 is the first server processor family to feature integrated graphics. These chips offer Intel's HD Graphics P3000, which seems almost identical to the HD 3000 on the desktop platform.
There is one thing that stands out with some of these CPUs. Unlike the desktop SKUs, only some models feature the IGP unit, with all but one of these being named Intel HD Graphics P3000. If you recall, in the desktop models the Intel HD Graphics 3000/2000 is used. So what does change in the P-model (short for Professional)? On the surface it appears to be the same as Intel's HD 3000 - same clocks, same number of execution units, same 3D API support. Checking Intel's supplemental documentation reveals that it has supposedly "unlocked" graphics performance for professional applications.

Enough with the marketing chit chat, his basically means that it adds support for professional applications. It also states it is "certified and tested with ISV's", claiming sufficient performance for 3D CAD and basic digital content creation (DCC) applications – at least on the entry level as another slide clarifies. Does that ring any bells? Until now, Intel had no solution for this market.
