Many businesses dont have dedicated graphics cards.

and

Every computer at my high school and college has no graphics card. (besides rooms for AutoCAD)

More than half the computers in the world use IGPs, including desktops.

it is hard to come by, if you use sandy bridge.
the GPU is inaccessible for flash acceleration, or any other type of acceleration other than BSOD.

Aw stole Frickfrock's ideal thread, how did he miss this one! That was a funny note though, and awesome cpu chocolates..

That's unfortunate Hopefully they fix whatever the problem is (I assume drivers) around the time the next batch of boards come out.

And going by that definition, more than half of desktops use IGPs. Most people's "high-end" computer is not gonna be anywhere near in performance in comparison to an enthusiast's computer. I think you don't recognize us enthusiasts make a very small segment of the market.

it is not a chipset/board problem. that was for SATA2 defective design. how did they bork a 6(?) year old design i have no idea.

this lack of acceleration from SB's GPU is a uarch problem.

I know the GPU problems aren't the cause for the recall and all of that, I was just saying I hope they get fixed before the "re-launch" happens.

chips are already out, getting cold due to lack of mobos.
you cannot fix a hardware/uarch problem other than by going back to the drawing board/simulator/circuit designer.

there is no fix, not even on ivy bridge(only a shrink).

the only acceleration using SB GPU is video transcoding/QuickSync.


it lacks GPU acceleration in flash, photoshop, ms office, html5, webm, internet explorer, firefox, chrome, corel, arcsoft, and a lot of other apps listed in the blogs.

when Llano comes out, sandy bridge on mobile and desktops(w/o discrete graphics) will go the same way as the atom.
