The problem is (to my knowledge) Intel won't put it in i5 models or lower - that's where people would need it most. Most desktop i7 users don't need the IGP at all. If you're a gamer or graphic...

You're really grasping at straws here. Looking at only the bar graphs for games, the 5775C wins in 6 tests, loses in 4, and ties in 2. Of the tests it won, the greatest FPS difference was 6%...

No, it CAN heavily increase performance. Big difference there. It doesn't always increase performance. I have no doubt that in tests involving the IGP, the 5775C will always win, but in strictly...

No... the 5775C doesn't disagree with what I wrote. First of all, as you said, it's an L4 cache - that's pretty removed. Secondly, if you haven't noticed, each layer of cache is always multitudes...

Why should they get larger? It's not supposed to be a source of on-chip RAM. The smaller they are, the better latency read/write speeds become. In many cases, L2 has double or even triple the...

I'm really glad they implemented Vulkan. This is the sort of thing that may help popularize it over DirectX, especially when you consider that OpenGL ES isn't very portable. Besides, ARM devices...

I've always wondered the same thing. Even in Linux, you can access different shells within the same terminal window or TTY. For example, you can switch between sh, bash, zsh, and so on. I don't...

Yeah I never quite understood that either. The way I see it, Microsoft implemented this as a way to help Linux [server] users transition to Windows. However, it can easily work the other way around.

In many cases, DX11 doesn't have that many visual advantages over DX10 either. I think DX10 had some visual improvements over DX9, but each generation since 9 has been more focused on performance...

Holy crap Intel, you still don't get it, do you? Raspberry Pi didn't get popular because of GPIO, and it [the original] certainly wasn't all that fast. It was popular because it was...

True, I thought of that. But keep in mind the 480 is already pretty limited. From what I recall, that doesn't have as much overclocking headroom. Considering the 480 does have more physical...

Of course it's still good. Just because you have something last-gen and relatively expensive, that doesn't make it bad for playing games. The 970 was meant to effectively play games at 1080p. I...

Hmm... the 470 is weirdly competitive with the 480, albeit, when OCed. If I were on a budget, I'd much rather get a 470 and OC it and save myself $50 or so.

EDIT:

In some cases, it wouldn't surprise me if the 2x 670s would perform better. But it really comes down to your electric bill. A single 1060 is significantly more energy efficient.
