Abstract

Intel® Processor Graphics is a power-efficient, high performance graphics and media accelerator integrated on-die with the Intel CPU. It is the graphics processor in the majority of desktops and laptops. The integrated GPU shares the last-level cache with the CPU, which permits fine-grained, coherent data sharing at low latency and high bandwidth. On-die integration enables much lower power consumption than a discrete graphics card. Performance of the GPU approaches a teraflop. In this tutorial, we will give an in-depth presentation of the architecture and micro-architecture of the media and graphics accelerator and Intel Graphics Instruction Set Architecture (ISA). The tutorial has three parts. Part one will focus on the system architecture, part two will present micro architecture of Intel Processor Graphics, part three will present Intel Graphics ISA and some examples.
