    Anyone has any idea about the benchmarks? How does it fare compared to the Iris Pro? Or the Iris ?:confused:

    Probably not as powerful as the Iris Pro, after all it has no fan for cooling it so unless Intel have made something magical I would say along the lines of the Iris

    It supports dual 4K monitors, which the Iris Pro does not. I wonder how well it does this.

    I just noticed the memory is 1866mhz instead of 1600. This should help the Iris I would think.

    I don't think anybody else used those chips yet. You will have to wait for benchmarks. I am guessing it will be 20% faster minimum or so based on simple math with memory speed and execution units. Question is the actual clock rates it will run under load. Chances are 14nm helps with the low clock rates and that will be whatever will be the percentage points on top of the min 20%.

    I too am interested in this!

    Also, does anyone have any details on the new flash storage and RAM (I see it has a few more letters and mhz now)? I'm supreised PCIe based flash storage even gets any faster?

    Well at least we know that Iris 6100 can support up to 3 displays at 3840x2160 at 60 Hz.
