Intel GMA HD Vs Intel HD Graphics 3000

Postby picadelly » Tue Jan 03, 2012 2:18 pm


Intel GMA HD or the Graphics Media Accelerator HD is the earlier 1st generation graphics in Intel Core i3, core i5 and core i7 processors ( As also Arrandale based Pentium Processor). The Intel HD Graphics 3000 ( Sometimes also called GMA HD 3000) is the integrated graphics in the second generation core i processors ( As also Sandy Bridge Pentium and Celeron Processors). Let us discuss the difference between them and how much is the HD 3000 improved with respect to the earlier revision.

The Intel GMA HD graphics is made available with first generation processors due to availability of 3 codes.

The Intel HD Graphics 3000 is made available with the 2nd generation processors due to the availability of 4 codes.

The GMA HD is much slower than the HD 3000 and HD 3000 offers good performance with games unlike GMA HD. It is essential to configure the HD 3000 to the maximum settings in order to make more out of the graphics card for the user.

None of these are good enough for playing games. The good news is that we now have HD Graphics 4000 in Ivy Bridge which should, for the first time, make some games playable without any stutters etc.

I am actually looking at the Haswell. It is launching in March/April 2013 and I will be looking at the GT3 version of Graphics in Haswell. In they can put on processor graphics, as some reports suggest, it will be a real killer.

What kind of graphics is there in Core i3-370M. I have that processor in my computer and I have no complaint as such. It runs smooth and display is good.

It is the GMA HD - the older and slower Arrandale one. The HD Graphics 3000 comes with the Sandy Bridge ones.

Here is the comparative benchmark for 3DMark 05 for the two. Just gives you an idea.

GMA Graphics 2800
HD Graphics 3000 6400

Did anyone noticed. The Intel GMA graphics is poorer than the one in AMD's minnow E-450 APU. That is a $50 APU beating the likes of 1st generation Intel Core i3. Of course, the E-450 was launched later by it is just a 10 Watts processor.

The GMA graphics was a new exercise for Intel. It worked in an area it had never worked earlier. A separate Intel Israel team worked on the design of the Graphics Silicon. If you look at it in light of these things - it makes sense. Everyone knows the Intel GMA is a bad graphics. But it was an engineering choice. They brought out a separate silicon so that they could test it separately if there was a fault or an issue. Things got complicated with Sandy Bridge - if there was a problem with Graphics silicon there was no way to debug it. Everything was inside a single silicon. Things eventually aligned and worked and Intel is past the initial stages. With Haswell launching in April 2013, we will have the performance story.
