According to the article, they're also going to be using embedded DRAM on desktop boards to increase the graphics performance of Iris Pro options.

:thumbup:
Let's see how much of that transfer into real-world performance. ;p

Apart from that, AMDs APUs look vastly superior, even in concept to this. Their next-gen processors support GDDR5 as regular RAM, which should vastly improve performance; I guess that's the reason Intel tries to counter the concept with embedded DRAM...which, I think, is not so good, because slotted GDDR5 sound much more interesting... :!:

Second generation of Haswell will need to have to beat that, or maybe Apple will switch over (finally); the better CPU+GPU die is the kinda thing to have for MacBooks, MacMini, etc..

So the future times look really interesting, don't they? :D
