Ok I don't mean to sound like a total noob, but my question is regarding a news article I read on a local IT magazine(I'm from South Sri Lanka).
According to it,
"......Sandy Bridge Processors due to be released in 2011,....... contain high Quality Integrated Graphics which can provide Mainstream Graphical performance......" (I think this is not Possible! Then ATI & nVidia will be out of business!!)
My question is:
Is this True??? Will Sandy Bridge really out perform or at least measure up to the Mainstream Gaming VGAs developed by nVidia and ATI/AMD??? A detailed answer would be appreciated
sandy bridge will be competing against integrated graphic chips from ATI & Nvidia. It will not be competing against modern dedicated video cards. what you read was a fluff peace about Intel with marketing talk. mainstream is another word for "the people who want to purchase the cheapest PC/laptop". in order to compete in that market, graphics are the first thing that get cut.
