    10-20% CPU boost?

    ...that's quite a bit higher than the 3-5% everyone has been estimating so far.

    Is that because there's no Broadwell S series?

    On some level, I find integrated graphics gains disappointing. I'll be using a desktop with discrete graphics, but some of the price and design I see will reflect a feature that doesn't have value to me.

    Though, of course, a better minimum graphics baseline helps software developers, which in turn, does benefit me, so I can't really complain.

    Funny how leaked slides look like media releases and usually appear around release time for products.

    I thought they carried the C suffix, basically a desktop part but with high performance graphics.

    It depends how much Intel cares for AMD. If they do not care at all a I3 with this GPU on it would be pretty much the end of the road, more so if they decided to just undercut them drastically. Sell a I3 with this gpu for under £100 job done end of market for APUs.

    Intergrated graphics are about on par with a 560ti in terms of performance so they have come a long way. Intel are basically been forced to cater to a few peoples needs with there IGPU.

    Maybe they fear ZEN might be good and are aiming for a 20% boost in there performance metric. Its not within reason that Intel could drop a 20% faster cpu and a 50% gpu boost if needs be.

    Nothing like letting a few snippets of information "leak," to get the free publicity mill working.
