For what it's worth, the marketing graphics product names for Intel's upcoming Broadwell processors have been revealed.

Broadwell is Intel's 14nm shrink of Haswell that uses an MCP package design in conjunction with Intel 9-Series chipsets. On the CPU side there's some new instructions supported while on the graphics side is VP8 video decoding support, two bit stream decoder rings, and many graphics performance improvements alongwith better support for OpenGL 4. With Broadwell being another breakthrough for performance and power efficiency, the next-generation Intel hardware has me super excited for its debut later this year.

Intel's open-source Linux developers have for years been working on Broadwell hardware enablement so it's in good shape for launch -- as dozens of Phoronix articles have already covered Intel Broadwell Linux support. Today though they have finally revealed the actual product marketing names for upcoming graphics cores within Broadwell CPUs. The mentioned names include:

- Intel HD Geaphics 5300
- Intel HD Graphics 5500
- Intel HD Graphics 5600
- Intel HD Graphics 6000
- Intel Iris Graphics 6100
- Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200
- Intel Iris Pro Graphics P6300


The new Iris graphics are, of course, what have me most excited... Stay tuned for Phoronix Linux benchmarks of Broadwell hardware as soon as it's publicly released, thanks to great cooperation from Intel Corp.
