Data from Jon Peddie Research confirms the positive GPU sales information we've heard from AMD of late, with the GPU market as a whole growing by 14.7 percent in Q4 as compared to Q3, and 10.3 percent for the entire year. Intel led the quarter in both market share and increased unit shipments, thanks partially to the joint impact of Atom chipset sales and its new Clarkdale processors, which JPR is calling CIGs (CPU integrated graphics.) Since Intel effectively owns both categories and Atom's effect on the mobile market has been additive rather than disruptive, Intel's overall volume was boosted... Read more...
Gaming on integrated graphics?  You've got to be kidding, right?  I mean, standalone cards are pushed to the limit by games.  You would expect that a system "saddled" with integrated graphics would be too handicapped.  According to an Intel blog, with the latest release of their G965 integrated graphics chipset drivers, that's not necessarily the case. Traditionally, integrated graphics have been the weaklings of the graphics world – sure there are a lot of them sold, but traditionally they have been practically useless for 3D gaming. Until now that is - G965 has grown some muscle…Until very... Read more...
The MCP61S is an all-in-one integrated graphics processor (IGP) from NVIDIA that is designed for AMD's AM2 platform. It will combine the capabilities of a traditional northbridge and southbridge into a single chip along with a DirectX 9.0c compliant graphics solution. It will replace the GeForce 6100 IGP and will be built on NVIDIA's 90nm process. Digitimes is reporting that motherboards using the MCP61S will be available at the end of August. "The new IGP chipset could help motherboard manufacturers reduce design and production costs, as the unit price of MCP61S-based... Read more...
