Intel Unveils 10-Watt Haswell Chip 103

adeelarshad82 writes "At IDF, Intel announced the company's fourth-generation Core processor code-named Haswell. The chip is based off of the same 22nm process used in the current third-generation Core products. What makes this chip remarkably different from the third-generation chips is its ability to product twice the graphic capabilities at a much lower power consumption, which Intel has achieved by making use of a number of tactics." HotHardware has video of Haswell running a 3D benchmark.

    Because most PC's sold use integrated graphics, traditionally they have been abysmal. In the last few years seemly pushed by AMD they have been looking to correct that.

    1) Using integrated graphics for gaming if you are concerned about framerates is just dumb.
    2) 1/3 the TDP is the difference between a battery with power and one without.

    It's official. Intel on-board video is all you'll ever need for home and general office use. I'm not talking about "getting by" performance. I'm talking about full 2D hyper smooth animation, fading, and alpha blending. I've seen both Ubuntu, Windows 7, and Windows 8 using on-board. It doesn't bat an eyelash. No pausing or hiccups. Flash animation couldn't be more smooth too.

    About the only reason you wouldn't use on-board video is if you must run Adobe product that calls for GPU acceleration or you're a gamer.

    nVidia knows this too. As you can see, they've been focusing in on advanced 3D gaming and super computing. It won't be long before nVidia turns into the next "SGI" where only high-end is their focus. To the point where even they start losing the consumer market and only focus on business-to-business solutions and other vertical market applications.

Today is the first day of the rest of your lossage.
