Interesting News Story: Nvidia GPU inside Sandy Bridge

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I like to get some OCN opinions on this news story from Tom's.

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/san...ins,11819.html

Essentially, because the Sandy Bridge (SB) GPU is not DX11 capable, Intel will feature Nvidia GPU inside of SB.

What does this mean between Nvidia and Intel's relationship?

Is AMD looking at someone playing their own game of CPU,chipset and GPU intergration? What will this do to AMD's upcoming Fusion architecture?

I read that earlier and it wasn't well-written. It seems the title says something the article doesn't, unless I misread it. I took it to mean that Nvidia wasn't worried about competition from Intel and that the design of Sandy Bridge (somehow, probably just marketing) means it would pair well with discrete Nvidia graphics cards.

To: Mott555, It appears I misread the article. Seems you are right. OEM will be using SB CPUs but using Nvidia GPUs and not the onboard SB GPU.

Is the only reason for this DX11? I thought I heard that the SB GPUs were going to be really good compared to previous integrated GPUs. I heard they will be able to play a lot more games (not on high settings obviously) and be able to play full 1080p videos.
