Remote Graphics Performance based on Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 v4 with integrated Intel® Iris™ Pro Graphics

The emergence of remote workstations due to outsourced design houses and centralized large data sets that enable global workforce collaboration is requiring delivery of complex 3D applications from secure data centers. A data center graphics server based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v4 product family does just that.

Product and Performance Information


Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.

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.

Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.


Intel® processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See for details.


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel.

Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel® microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel® microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product user and reference guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
