Intel HD 5500 is the most important Graphics processing unit for laptops in 2015. Although it isnt high-performance one, Intel HD 5500 is probably the widest adopted GPU for mobile PCs in current market, since it is integrated into popular Intel Core series processors. Precisely, 5 Generation Intel Core Broadwell CPUs, such as i3-5005U / i3-5010U, i5-5200U / 5300U, and i7-5500U / 5600U. These chips are used in numerous mainstream, thin-and-light, and business-class laptops, which are primarily designed with everyday home and office computing in mind, rather than high-performance for demanding games and other intensive tasks. Laptops with Broadwell processors currently start at around 500. For this test, we used an Acer Aspire E5 laptop with a mid-range Intel Core i5-5200U chip which contains review Graphics processor, 4GB of RAM, windows 8. 1 operating system, and the latest Intel HD Graphics drivers instal. For gameplay recording we use dedicated video capture card, so there are no slowdowns in games due to software-base capturing. It is worth noting gameplays are slightly slower and faster on i3 and i7 Broadwell chips with HD 5500, due to differences in raw CPU power. Another important factor is whether you have single-channel or dual-channel system memory setup, where dual-channel setups can give noticeably better benchmark results and gaming experience. Also, different notebook designs and their cooling systems, as well as BIOS settings, can influence Graphics performance. The Laptop we tested appeared to deliver somewhat lower results than other systems with the same Core specs. League of Legends, most played online PC game, RUN without glitch on Medium High settings at 1080p 19201080 resolution, with character, effect, and environment graphics quality set on High, shadow set to Medium, and anti-aliasing turned off. In-game performance is between 35 and 40 frames per second most of the time. The final result is very smooth gameplay. Another important MMORPG title with a large player base is DOTA 2. It is more demanding in terms of hardware for smooth gameplay than League of Legends, so you have to dial down settings quite a bit. The best DOTA 2 experience on Intels HD 5500 appears to be with resolution set to 720p, shadow and texture quality on Medium, and advance Graphics Features turned off. Settings result in frame rates of around 40 FPS. Default DOTA 2 settings for GPU at 720p include anti-aliasing and other features turn on and shadows and textures set to high. But, frame rates drop to 25-30 FPS in that case. Minecraft has been among the top titles on the popular PC games chart for years. On reviewed GPU, it RUN very smooth on fancy settings, with FPS values gravitating toward 35 FPS. If you set Minecraft Graphics to Fast, frame rates will reach above 40 FPS. The world's most popular first-person shooter-Counter Strike: Global Offensive-can be played decently smoothly on GPU. For instance, one of the optimal Graphics detail setups includes resolution set to 720p, Medium details, and anti-aliasing turn off.

5 out of 5

Intel HD Graphics 5500 is an integrated Broadwell Graphics card revealed in Q1 2015. It can be found in several ULV SoCs such as Core i5-5200U or i7-5600U. While Core i5 and Core i7 chips feature 24 EUs, Core i3 version offer just 23 EUs. Depending on the specific CPU, maximum GPU frequency varies between 850 and 950 MHz. Architecture and Features Broadwell Features GPU is based on Intel Gen8 architecture, which has been optimized in various aspects compared to previous Gen7. 5. Inter alia, shader arrays called subslice have been reorganized and now offer 8 Execution Units each. Three subslices form slice for a total of 24 EUs. Combine with other improvements such as larger L1 caches and optimized frontend, integrated GPU has become faster and more efficient than its predecessor. HD Graphics 5500 represents the mid-range version of the Broadwell GPU family and consists of one slice with 24 EUs. Beyond that, there are also low-end variants as well as higher-end models. All Broadwell GPUs support OpenCL 2. 0 and DirectX 12. The video engine can now decode H. 265 using both fix function hardware as well as available GPU shaders. Up to three displays can be connected via DP 1. 2 / eDP 1. 3 or HDMI 1. 4a. HDMI 2. 0, however, is not support. Performance Depending on the specific CPU, maximum GPU frequency varies between 850 and 950 MHz. Due to low TDP, however, average clock in 3D applications will be somewhat lower. Equip with fast dual-channel memory, HD Graphics 5500 outperforms HD Graphics 4400 by 20-25 percent and also beats HD Graphics 5000. However, even low-end dedicated GeForce 820M ist about 10-30 percent faster than the HD 5500. Games as of 2014 / 2015 will usually run fluently only at low settings. Power Consumption Utilizing the new 14 nm process, Broadwell ULV chips are specified at just 15 W TDP and therefore suit for thin ultrabooks. TDP is flexible and can be further reduce, which has a significant impact on performance. Intel HD Graphics 5000 is a processor Graphics card included in some of ULV Haswell processors of 2013. It represents the highest configuration of integrated Graphics unit, but lacks the additional eDRAM cache of Iris Pro Graphics 5200. A relatively low base clock can be automatically overclocked using Turbo Boost technology. Depending on processor model, base and Turbo clock rates may differ, resulting in varying Graphics performance between CPU models. In comparison to the HD 4000, Graphics Core has been modified extensively. GPU supports DirectX 11. 1, OpenCL 1. 2 and OpenGL 4. 0 It also features an improved decoder for 4K videos and a fast Quick Sync encoder. According to benchmarks in 3DMark 11, HD Graphics 5000 is up to 50 percent faster than the previous HD 4000. In games, however, performance advantage is significantly lower.
