Nvidia: Gaming on Intel's next-gen chip

December 18, 2010 11:37 AM PST | By Brooke Crothers

Quote:
Graphics-chip supplier Nvidia says it will do just fine despite claims by Intel that its next-gen chip will offer the best gaming performance to date.

Slated to debut at the Consumer Electronics Show on January 5, the Second Generation Intel Core--aka, "Sandy Bridge"--boasts improved graphics performance, allowing PC makers to offer low-cost laptops that are more adept at games and multimedia. In short, no extra graphics chip from Nvidia or Advanced Micro Devices will be required in certain laptop models.

Even intel knows this, but they have to talk the talk.


Edit: To the future is fusion guy: The future is integrated GPU/CPU, it's not clear yet that fusion will be the winner.

I think he just meant fusion as in GPU/CPU fused in general and not actually AMD fusion.

AMD already did this, and with amazing quality, I doubt Intel can recover so quickly.

Intel is going to do just fine with their integrated CPU. This boost in performance on the graphics core will allow OEMs to forgo integrated GPUs on the motherboard, since most integrated GPU are only just as fast or slightly faster then then intels graphics core. Most discreet GPUs will still be faster, but that doesn't mean that ones without can not still be marked as "gaming machines". I am pretty excited to see what kind of performance/battery life this combination can give. Intel is so far ahead of AMD right now on the power front. Not just in broader power saving technologies, such as speed step, turbo, ect, but in their whole power design. The "hurry up and idle" approach is so good. If they can manage to bring that kind of efficiency to the graphics core and the CPU in great synergy then that will be really amazing.

There is a lot of hope for AMDs llano and other fusion platforms still. AMD is already so behind though. The only thing I am really excited about from AMDs 32nm offerings is zocate, and bulldozer of course.

The IGP in the Fusion chips has an 80:8:4 core configuration...it's basically a downclocked 5450 with some tweaks. Doesn't sound like much to you guys with $300+ GPU's, but I've been gaming just on my 4350(also 80:8:4) all day. I even played through Crysis and Warhead on it, at 1280x1024, and got ~20-40fps, which is still fairly playable. If Intel can match that, I'll be very surprised.

More than good enough, review shows i5 integrated GPU keeping up with discrete AMD HD5450... Review is done with beta drivers and pre-mature BIOS/chipset.
