Intel HD Graphics 4200 is an integrated, GT2 graphics controller in the Core i-series of processors from Intel’s Haswell generation. Announced on June 5, 2013, its goal being to successfully fend off the lowend dedicated memory graphics by AMD and NVIDIA.
HD 4200 has 20 ‘Execution unit’ blocks, four more than the HD 4000’s sixteen blocks. The graphics chip supports DirectX 11.1, Pixel Shader 5.0, OpenCL 1.2, OpenGL 4.0, a Quick Sync encoder and a similar 4K video decoder. Intel HD 4200’s base frequency is 200MHz, but Turbo Boost can increase it up to 850MHz, depending on the processor in which the 4200 is integrated.
HD 4200 supports up to three individual displays with a max resolution of 4096×4086. Power consumption is dramatically lower when compared to NVIDIA and AMD’s discreet solutions, which is why integrated GT2 controllers are a must-have for the Ultrabook class of portables.
