IDF: Intel's graphics technology plans

Posted on Friday, September 21 2007 @ 00:30:33 CEST by

X-bit Labs takes a look at what we can expect from Intel on the graphics front in the near future:
Starting next year Intel will transit its chipsets to newer manufacturing technologies faster. As a result, it believes, the built-in graphics cores will feature more transistors, meaning better feature-set and performance.

“We’re changing that pace starting next year. We’ll bring 65 nanometers out early next year into the graphics, and take the graphics up by a factor of a little more than two here. In the second part of that generation, in 2009, you’ll see us move integrated graphics to 45nm. And at this point in time it becomes incorporated into the microprocessor, so it becomes part of the CPU, matching the technologies for graphics and microprocessors in the same silicon generation. That gets us more than a 6x boost from where we were last year,” said Paul Otellini, chief executive of Intel.

In 2010 the world’s No. 1 chipmaker will introduce its code-named Westmere central processing unit (CPU) with integrated graphics core, which will be made using 32nm process technology, that will be ten times faster compared to “today’s” integrated graphics cores.
The article also talks about Larrabee which is a new discrete graphics processor from Intel.
