Intel Haswell HD Graphics 4400 Are Great On Linux
Written by Michael Larabel in Graphics Cards on 11 October 2013. Page 6 of 6. 13 Comments

For the GpuTest benchmarks, the i3-4130 HD Graphics 4400 performance continued to tango with the i7-3770K HD Graphics 4000 while the HD Graphics 4600 performance on the i7-4770K was far superior. The i3-4130 Haswell with HD Graphics 4400 at least remained superior to the Core i3/i5 Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge CPUs.

While there was a noticeable difference in the Haswell graphics performance between the HD Graphics 4400 on the i3-4130 and the HD Graphics 4600 i7-4770K, the low-end Haswell performed surprisingly great against the previous-generation Core i3 and Core i5 CPUs from the Sandy/Ivy Bridge generations. From the graphics perspective on Linux at least, the i3-4130 is a nice CPU, but stay tuned for the full review in the coming days. There's also the open-source low-end Linux GPU comparison results that will be published next week from Linux 3.12 + Mesa Git. The Core i3 4130 CPU currently retails for about $130 USD.
