Intel HD Graphics P3000 for Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 Family
Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 family’s greatest innovation is how it integrates – for the first time in an entry workstation product – the CPU and graphics are on the same die. Intel® HD Graphics P30001 integrates high-performance graphics and media processing right on the processor, putting these two key components together on a single chip. That means visual and 3D graphics capabilities that were once only available to entry workstation users with discrete graphics cards will now be accessible to anyone with an entry workstation powered by the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 family with Intel HD Graphics P3000.
If your systems are to be employed by users of application like the Autodesk AutoCAD*/Inventor*/Revit*; Adobe Premiere* Elements; Adobe Photoshop*; SolidWorks* and other similar volume professional software applications, then the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 family with Intel HD Graphics P3000 is a solution to consider.
Intel® HD Graphics P3000 has been architected to support Microsoft DirectX* 10.1 and OpenGL* 3.0.
Intel HD Graphics takes advantage of a generalized unified shader model including support for Shader Model 4.1. The platform also has support for DirectX* 11 on DirectX* 10 hardware. The graphics core executes vertex, geometry, and pixel shaders on the programmable array of Execution Units (EUs). The EUs have programmable SIMD (Single Instruction, Multiple Data) widths of 4 and 8 element vectors (two 4 element vectors paired) for geometry processing and 8 and 16 single data element vectors for pixel processing. Each EU is capable of executing multiple threads to cover latency. The new generation of Intel HD Graphics now integrates transcendental shader instructions into the EU units, rather than a shared math box found in prior generations, resulting in improved processing of instructions such as POW, COS, and SIN. Clipping and setup have moved to Fixed Function units, further increasing performance by reducing contention within the EUs. The end result is the fastest Intel HD Graphics to date.
