Shame, this game changer is not going to be on regular desktops or UltraBooks.

Several months ago, we exclusively revealed the existance of the on-package eDRAM coming with Haswell to boost its graphics prowness. Here's what we found somewhere on the IDF Beijing show floor –

So where will the Haswell chips with GT3e be ending up? Soldered on BGA-only variants that will reside in "Performance" 55W quad-core notebooks (as an alternative to sub-20W discrete options from AMD and Nvidia that is usually paired with a 35/45W CPU) and the desktop AiOs.

The other animals in the farm will get the less exciting GT2 (16/20 EUs) or GT3 (40 EUs).

Stay tuned for the on-site IDF performance expose.
