Intel UHD Graphics 600

The Intel UHD Graphics 600 is an integrated processor graphics unit belonging to the Gemini Lake generation (e.g., Pentium N4100), which was announced in late 2017. This GPU boasts low power consumption figures, but its performance is limited to the low-end segment and is generally insufficient for modern gaming. As the lowest configuration of the Gemini Lake GPU, the UHD Graphics 600 is equipped with 12 of the 18 Execution Units (EUs), running at speeds of up to 700 MHz. The technical specifications of the GPU are based on Intel’s Gen9 architecture, also used in the more expensive Skylake series and its predecessor, the HD Graphics 505.

Due to the absence of dedicated graphics memory or an eDRAM cache, the UHD Graphics 600 accesses the main memory via the processor (2x 64-bit DDR4/LPDDR4-2400).

Performance:

The UHD Graphics 600 offers performance similar to the Intel HD Graphics 500 in the Apollo Lake SoCs (utilizing the same Gen 9 architecture). Consequently, the GPU is suitable only for some very low-demanding games like Dirt Rally or Sims 4.

Features:

The video engine is capable of decoding H.265/HEVC (8b and 10b) and VP9 entirely in hardware. Up to three displays can be connected via DP 1.2a/eDP 1.3 or HDMI 2.0a (including HDCP 2.2).

Power Consumption:

The TDP (Thermal Design Power) of the entire Pentium N4100 chip is 6 Watts by default, making the GPU primarily suitable for (often passively cooled) netbooks or thin notebooks. The TDP can be reduced to 4.8 Watts, but this will inevitably impact performance.
