Intel Core i7 4950HQ 

Released July, 2013
  • 2.4 GHz
  • Quad core

Running Haswell's new better quality transcode mode, the 4950HQ is actually 30% faster than the fastest desktop Haswell.

I also included the 100W A10-5800 as a reference point since we were largely pleased with the GPU performance of Trinity on the desktop.

Intel Iris Pro 5200 Graphics Review: Core i7-4950HQ Tested

by Anand Lal Shimpi |
With 1/4 - 1/2 of the execution resources as the GT3 graphics implementation, and no corresponding increase in frequency to offset the loss the slower parts are substantially less capable.
Given the potential use as a very large CPU cache, it’s a bit insane that Intel won’t even offer a single K-series SKU with Crystalwell on-board.
