Intel HD Graphics 400: specs and benchmarks

Intel HD Graphics 400

Summary

Intel started HD Graphics 400 sales 1 April 2015. This is Generation 8.0 architecture desktop card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use.

Compatibility-wise, this is an integrated video card. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 6 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.07 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
