Intel HD Graphics 5000 is an integrated, GT3 graphics controller in the Core i-series of processors from Intel’s Haswell generation. It was announced on May 6, 2013, its goal being to stand against the lowend dedicated memory graphics from NVIDIA and AMD.
HD Graphics 5000 has 40 shader cores, known as ‘Execution units’, twenty more than the HD 4600. The graphics controller supports DirectX 11.1, Shader 5.0, OpenCL 1.2, OpenGL 4.0. There is also an improved 4k Quick Sync encoder. Base frequency of the HD 5000 is 200MHz, and when the need arises, Turbo Boost can increase that to 1100MHz, depending on the processor.
HD Graphics 5000 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. For this reason, integrated GT3 controllers are a must-have for the Ultrabook class of portables.
