Intel Demo Core i7 Broadwell Processor with Iris Pro Graphics
Ashley Allen / 2 years ago
Intel staged a presentation in San Francisco on Wednesday night, during which we got our first look at a 5th generation Intel Core i7 Broadwell processor with Intel Iris Pro graphics – the first time an LGA-socketed processor has been paired with Iris Pro – running on a Dell 5K display.
The PC used for the demonstration ran on an EVGA Z97 motherboard (P/N: 152-HR-E979-KR) – with the implication that all Intel Z97 boards will be Broadwell-ready – with a fully unlocked, 65w TDP Intel Core i7 Broadwell. No third-party cooling system was employed, so the Intel CPU Cooler appeared to be sufficient.
Intel did not demonstrate any games on the 5K display, a Dell UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K Monitor (UP2715K) with a 5120×2880 screen resolution showing a series of Ultra-HD images. The EVGA Z97 board was picked due to its dual DisplayPort video outputs, needed to run the Dell UP2715K display.
An Intel press release reads:
“Intel recently introduced our 5th Generation Intel Core processors resulting in a wave of products built on Intel’s industry-leading 14nm process technology. In a new disclosure at GDC, Intel showed the first 5th Generation Core LGA-socketed CPU with Intel Iris Pro graphics. This 65 watt unlocked desktop processor, available mid-2015, will bring new levels of performance and power efficiency to Mini PCs and desktop All-In-Ones. Since 2006 the 3D performance of Intel Graphics has increased nearly 100 fold (Intel 3DMark06 measurements) and powerful form factors from Acer, Medion and Intel’s own NUCs are becoming available with 5th Generation Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Graphics.”
Intel recently revealed that its Broadwell series of CPUs are due for release mid-2015.
