it says 64bits, that's half the of what the 650 have.
64bit GDDR5 should be as good as 128bit DDR3 numbers but I think it's worse because the card will only use half the "ROPs"!?

at the same time it's 1250MHz, while most DDR3 cards use 800 or 900.
so it's like 40GB/s, for this 640 64bit GDDR5
64bit gddr5? What a strange combination.:confused: So it actually have more bandwidth than gt640. 40GB/s vs 28GB/s... Interesting

I would love to see power consumption number in this review. That would be interesting to see.

1. How were you able to obtain and bench a chip prior to a NDA lifting?

2. I don't believe you are allowed to start threads to promote your website, you are only allowed links in your sig, but I am sure a Mod will make that decision if they haven't already.

You're accusing another person without having any proof?

It's especially "funny" looking at Intel's logo in your avatar.

I believe that this whole thread is not allowed, I am checking with higher authority. He is right though that self-promotion is not allowed.

The NDA has been lifted so I don't understand what NDA is this guy breaking?
As for "self-promotion", how can we know about the review if somebody doesn't post about it? Do you suggest he should have asked somebody else to create a topic in his name? That would be actually devious.

This is also reposted all over the place as a quick google search will reveal.

Are forum users forbidden to share their performance charts?

I actually think it would be more shameless self promoting to just post a link and nothing else. All the pertinent information is in the OP. Don't have to leave the forums to see it.

Considering he has 31 posts over 2-3 years and every post is pimping his blog and he never has any community involvement above that..... Yes, it's a self promotion only account and those aren't allowed.

agreed, I didn't visit any of his links, just looked at what he posted in this topic, and I think it was a good post with some interesting numbers,

if you forbid people from posting their results here, they could just pretend it's not theirs and post a link, I prefer this way.

What he posted here is instantly more contribution than 90% of the posting population, and you don't have to visit a link to get it. What's the issue?

Keep in mind that the Iris Pro on the 4750HQ is TDP limited to 47W for the whole package.
And IrisPRO is still a too expensive piece of hardware and it's unaffordable for the PC/notebook nowdays mainstream targets.

So IGP's continue to be an unsuitable choice for anyone remotely interested in mainstream games.
With 4k monitors going mainstream-priced and PC sizes getting every year smaller, will ever IGPs catch dGPUs?
