Intel invents mobile graphics that use 10x less power

Posted on Thursday, March 19 2009 @ 04:43:39 CET by

Intel announced it has developed a SIMD Accelerator for mobile devices, the chip giant claims this graphics accelerator uses 10x less power than today's accelerators.
Delivering great graphics performance on very small devices, like a phone or handheld device, has always been a challenge because of the inherent limitations of cramming and cooling high performance components in a very small, battery operated device. One technique to get around these limitations is executing multiple computing instructions at once (called SIMD, or Single Instruction, Multiple Data) so that the onscreen graphic images are done faster. Intel researchers have developed a SIMD Accelerator that consumes about 10 times less energy than the accelerators used today, making it ideal for small devices. This advancement could enable richer multimedia and more immersive visuals, particularly on Mobile Internet Devices and other small devices in the future. This is a research project aimed at enhancing future Intel products.
