Intel to debut HD P3000 workstation graphics series

/ 7 years ago

While it is obvious from all forms of testing that Intel’s graphics royally fail at gaming, it is also just as apparent that their graphics cores are quite capable in a workstation environment being particularly strong at encoding and rendering. Currently Nvidia’s Quadro series and AMD’s FirePro series dominant the workstation environment. Using Nvidia’s FX 580 as a baseline (which costs rougly £160/$180) Intel claims the HD P3000 graphics it has integrated onto its newest Xeon CPUs offer the same if not better performance resulting in no need to have an FX 580 and therefore a $150-$200 saving.

This should give Intel CPUs even more of a competitive edge in the workstation environment if they didn’t have it already. Since now cheaper AMD alternatives are not that cheap as you would still need to purchase a separate GPU for them. The new Professional grade Intel graphics are going to get certification for PhotoShop, AutoCAD, Solid Edge and 3DS Max which will really give Intel a foothold in the workstation graphics market.
