Questions to Ask for Maximum Design Potential
What is the Goal?
• Trying to use Intel® Iris™ part as option in HD form factor

• Trying to use Iris part in a Discrete graphics form factor?
• Purpose built Iris form factor solution?
Key Points for Multipurpose MB supporting Intel Iris Solution
• Memory Choice & Configuration
• Power (AC/DC) design
• Thermal design
• Turbo Parameters
Intel Design Documents available covering Design Goals / Key Points with deeper detail and best practices
13

Graphics Performance Design Consideration
Best Memory Configuration
• Dual Channel
-

Theoretical maximum Bandwidth =

-

Dual channel will be have 25.6 GB/S, twice single channel

-

Same memory combination can max. the dual channel performance

((Transfer Rate*Number of Memory Channels*Channel Data Bits)/8)/1000
4G 2Rx8

• Multi-Rank Memory
-

Multi-rank DIMMs have higher bandwidth which allows them to
have more pages open (due to double the resources available)
Since Graphics memory accesses are more scattered, it is expected
to see more benefit from higher number of open DRAM pages
(page miss/empty cases degrades DRAM bandwidth)

4G 1Rx8

Use dual channel, multi-rank memory to maximize the Intel® Iris™ graphics performance

- Over reporting impacts performance
- Under reporting impacts thermal behavior
Designing to Scale from Intel® HD to Intel® Iris™ Graphics Solutions
• Power delivery capability must meet Intel requirement for Iris / Intel® Iris™ Pro performance
• Imon must be calibrated accurately to avoid performance loss or thermal impact
16

Graphics Performance Design Consideration
- Thermal & Turbo Design
Good Thermal Design
• Processor temperature
- Design for lowest processor temperature possible to get best performance

Proper Turbo Parameters
• PL1/Tau/PL2 should be equal or bigger than default/recommended values
- Turbo parameters are related to thermal and power design capabilities
- Optimization of turbo parameters is possible to get better performance

17

What is SVM – Shared Virtual Memory?
SVM allows for easier data sharing between the CPU & GPU

• Host-side virtual memory pointers can be accessed within OpenCL™ kernels
• Complex data structures (e.g. linked-lists) can be shared on the GPU device
- No need to copy / move pointer data

• Enables fine-grained heterogeneous processing (CPU & GPU) and simplifies buffer
management
• User-level task queueing can minimize GPU offload overhead

3. Copy the output frame from the GPU memory to the CPU memory
Without SVM supports, the data movement between the GPU memory space and the CPU memory space is necessary due to
OpenCL kernel is only able to access the data in the GPU memory space.

Processor & Graphics Benchmark Limitations
Benchmark and performance tests ("benchmarks") measure different aspects of processor and/or system performance. While no single numerical measurement can completely describe the
performance of a complex device like a microprocessor or a personal computer, benchmarks can be useful tools for comparing different components and systems. The only totally accurate
way to measure the performance of your system, however, is to test the software applications you use on your computer system. Benchmark results published by Intel are measured on specific
systems or components using specific hardware and software configurations, and any differences between those configurations (including software) and your configuration may very well make
those results inapplicable to your component or system.
Benchmarks can be divided into two kinds, component and system. Component benchmarks measure the performance of specific parts of a computer system, such as a microprocessor or hard
disk drive, while system benchmarks typically measure the performance of the entire computer system. In either case, the performance you see in day to day use will almost certainly vary from
benchmark performance, for a number of reasons. First, individual components must usually be tested in a complete computer system, and it is not always possible to eliminate the
considerable effects that differences in system design and configuration will have on benchmark results. For instance, system vendors sell systems with a wide variety of disk capabilities and
speeds, system memory, system bus features and video and graphics capabilities, all of which influence how the system components (such as the microprocessor) and the computer system
perform in actual use and can dramatically affect benchmark results. Also, differences in software, including operating systems and compilers, will affect component and system performance.
Finally, benchmark tests are typically written to be exemplary of only a certain type of computer application, which may or may not be similar to your applications.
Benchmarks are, at most, only one kind of information that you may use during the purchasing process. To get a true picture of the performance of a component or system you are considering
purchasing, you must consult other sources of information (such as performance information on the exact system you are considering purchasing). If you have any questions about the
performance of any Intel microprocessor, please view the detailed performance briefs and reports published by Intel.
SPECint and SPECfp benchmark tests reflect the performance of the microprocessor, memory architecture and compiler of a computer system on compute-intensive, 32-bit applications. SPEC
benchmark tests results for Intel microprocessors are determined using particular, well-configured systems. These results may or may not reflect the relative performance of Intel
microprocessor in systems with different hardware or software designs or configurations (including compilers). Buyers should consult other sources of information, including system
benchmarks, to evaluate the performance of systems they are considering purchasing. For more information about SPEC, including a description of the systems used to obtain these test result,
and other information about microprocessor and system performance and benchmarks, visit Intel's World Wide Web site at www.intel.com.
Performance tests and ratings are measured using specific computer systems and/or components and reflect the approximate performance of Intel products as measured by those tests. Any
difference in system hardware or software design or configuration, as well as system use patterns including wireless connectivity, may affect actual test results and ratings.
Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are
measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other
information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more

Risk Factors
The above statements and any others in this document that refer to plans and expectations for the second quarter, the year and the future are
forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Words such as “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,”
“seeks,” “estimates,” “may,” “will,” “should” and their variations identify forward-looking statements. Statements that refer to or are based on
projections, uncertain events or assumptions also identify forward-looking statements. Many factors could affect Intel’s actual results, and variances
from Intel’s current expectations regarding such factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking
statements. Intel presently considers the following to be important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the company’s
expectations. Demand for Intel's products is highly variable and, in recent years, Intel has experienced declining orders in the traditional PC market
segment. Demand could be different from Intel's expectations due to factors including changes in business and economic conditions; consumer
confidence or income levels; customer acceptance of Intel’s and competitors’ products; competitive and pricing pressures, including actions taken by
competitors; supply constraints and other disruptions affecting customers; changes in customer order patterns including order cancellations; and
changes in the level of inventory at customers. Intel operates in highly competitive industries and its operations have high costs that are either fixed
or difficult to reduce in the short term. Intel's gross margin percentage could vary significantly from expectations based on capacity utilization;
variations in inventory valuation, including variations related to the timing of qualifying products for sale; changes in revenue levels; segment product
mix; the timing and execution of the manufacturing ramp and associated costs; excess or obsolete inventory; changes in unit costs; defects or
disruptions in the supply of materials or resources; and product manufacturing quality/yields. Variations in gross margin may also be caused by the
timing of Intel product introductions and related expenses, including marketing expenses, and Intel's ability to respond quickly to technological
developments and to introduce new products or incorporate new features into existing products, which may result in restructuring and asset
impairment charges. Intel's results could be affected by adverse economic, social, political and physical/infrastructure conditions in countries where
Intel, its customers or its suppliers operate, including military conflict and other security risks, natural disasters, infrastructure disruptions, health
concerns and fluctuations in currency exchange rates. Intel’s results could be affected by the timing of closing of acquisitions, divestitures and other
significant transactions. Intel's results could be affected by adverse effects associated with product defects and errata (deviations from published
specifications), and by litigation or regulatory matters involving intellectual property, stockholder, consumer, antitrust, disclosure and other issues,
such as the litigation and regulatory matters described in Intel's SEC filings. An unfavorable ruling could include monetary damages or an injunction
prohibiting Intel from manufacturing or selling one or more products, precluding particular business practices, impacting Intel’s ability to design its
products, or requiring other remedies such as compulsory licensing of intellectual property. A detailed discussion of these and other factors that
could affect Intel’s results is included in Intel’s SEC filings, including the company’s most recent reports on Form 10-Q, Form 10-K and earnings
release.
