angry tapir writes "Half the notebook computers and a growing number of desktops shipped in 2011 will run on graphics-enabled microprocessors as designers Intel and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) increase competition for the units that raise multimedia speeds without add-ons. The processors with built-in graphics capabilities will be installed this year on 115 million notebooks, half of total shipments, and 63 million desktop PCs, or 45 percent of the total, according to analysts."

    GPUs being integrated into CPUs mirror the situation of FPUs being integrated into CPUs in the 90s.

    There you go, 17 words, point made.

    ABLAH BLAH BLAH what I assume is esoteric knowledge that makes me look clever ABLAH BLAH BLAH things that everyone who reads slashdot already knows ABLAH BLAH BLAH overuse of the phrase "blithely ignore" just to make sure everyone sees that I know some other irrelevant facts ABLAH BLAH BLAH trite observation that is the first thing to occur to anyone when hearing that GPUs are being integrated into CPUs BLAH BLAH FUCKING BLAH.

Computers will not be perfected until they can compute how much more than the estimate the job will cost.
