How good is z170 igpu?

i want to make a pc on intel's z170 based chipset. i choose i7 6700k with 16gb of ram at 2400mhz i am just very much curious about it's integrated graphics performance. Is it true we can edit and render a 4k video on z170 igpu alone. how about gaming if i didn't add any graphics card on my machine. At least i want to play at full hd 1080p.

for igpu's you gotta go amd, all Intel processors uses the same igpu, Intel graphics ****, honestly there not very good at all, you could play team fortress 2 etc... but things like battlefield are just a no

But some are better than others, like how Broadwell CPU's integrated graphics are the best intel ones (Comparable to a 750)

It isn't good enough. It is a GT2 graphics implementation which is faily similar to the igpu on the 4790k.

 

The GT3e will be on par with broadwell graphics which may be good enough for 1080p gaming on certain games not quite max settings, and GT4e will be even better.

 

Supposedly skylake desktop parts with GT3e and above are coming 1Q '16

Price/performance left aside Intel's onboard graphics is better than any AMD APU ( Broadwell )

While it is called HD Graphics, there are different versions of it. The most powerful currently, Iris Pro, is only in Broadwell and not Skylake. Here are some benchmarks for you to swallow: http://www.techspot.com/review/1041-intel-core-i7-6700k-skylake/page9.html

lol, I was going to say that it wasn't but I saw your edit in time. You can't even really find Broadwell so I wouldn't even bother mentioning it.

There is literally little to zero stock in North America. If there is, it about $100 USD overpriced and is usually being sold by a market place seller on Amazon or other similar vendors.
