Among hard X-ray galactic sources detected by INTEGRAL and Swift surveys, those discovered as accreting white dwarfs have surprisingly boosted in number, representing 20% of the galactic sample. The majority are identified as magnetic cataclysmic variabiles of the intermediate polar type suggesting this subclass as an important constituent of galactic population of X-ray sources. In this conference-proceeding, we review the X-ray emission properties as observed with our ongoing XMM-Newton programme of newly discovered INTEGRAL and/or Swift sources that enlarged almost by a factor of two, identifying cataclysmic variabiles commonalities and outliers.
