[Tweaktown] Intel unveils plans for desktop processor lineups and mini PCs - Page 8

post #71 of 98
So… when will disabling built-in GPU be an option for notebooks? I constantly have to come up with tricks and workarounds to launch this or that software on the dedicated GPU (context menu and graphics control panel do not always work). It would be so much easier if dedicated GPU was the only choice and the onboard could be switched into a non-existent mode. Come on, Intel, stop shoving your “super-dooper-stinky-pooper” GPUs down our throats. At least on desktops we have the option to not install the drivers and disable the onboard altogether without losing the screen.

The fact you're using Linus for proof..well, his testing methods aren't exactly great, there you're comparing a much quicker chip with cores disabled as opposed to an actual dual core...Did he take into account the 3930k having large cache? You don't see any dual cores with a 12MB L3 cache..Did he take into account turbo speeds? If BF3 was using say, 8 cores total (so 6 cores and 2 threads on that chip) then wouldn't it Turbo less than just with a single or dual core enabled? Because that is not reflecting my results with a Core 2 Duo vs Phenom II vs FX vs Ivy Bridge. Hell, I might even test with my i5 and FX...Anyway, most games aren't CPU bottlenecked which is why you can get away with a dual with somewhat reduced FPS.
have to actually read more into this stuff before you shoot your mouth off.

Plus it doesn't say what in BF3 was benchmarked, BF3 64 players on Kharg Island is more than double as CPU intensive as any singleplayer level, and thus those results are pretty meaningless.

Exciting stuff ! I'm wondering how long I have before my 3770K @ 4.4GHZ becomes a bottleneck.Running 2X GTX680's right now. Planning on waiting for Nvidia 800 series GPU to update. Will I need a new CPU to power that ?

Can't you just disable it in the Device Manager?

Don't see why this wouldn't work for that.

You know, on my desktop it works totally fine, but on the notebook screen just goes into the mode where you get to choose between 1024×768 and 800×600, all in 32 colours. Annoying.

Core i7's need to go beyond quad-core on mainstream platform. it's the step forward Intel, about damn time.

Not going to happen any time soon, mainstream desktop products are just CPUs Intel found too leaky to sell as notebook chips(hence why all the mainstream i7 since Sandy Bridge have IGPUs). So unless there is a need for hexcore notebooks there will be no mainstream hexcore desktop chip. Given that notebooks outsell desktops and notebook CPU being more expensive than desktop equivalents,that makes perfect business sense.

Care to link to some proof of that?

They will sell you 8 cores on desktop when you think you need them. Only a minority of us think they do.

Even in overclock.net a good number still buys i5.

We could start by telling them i7 is tremendously faster even in many games now and listening to 4chan and ditching an i7 for an i5 to save 40 dollars is a tremendously stupid idea.

But Intel need to supply the customer with a rounded product, and take profit from ATI/Nvidia who supply graphics solutions.
They (Intel) would love to render the need for a graphics card obsolete so they can maximise their ROI, IMHO

The i7 is available as a hex-core part, just in SKT 2011 format. wink.gif
