Intel Arrandale to support switchable graphics

Posted on Wednesday, May 06 2009 @ 13:46:51 CEST by

FUD Zilla claims Intel's upcoming 32nm Arrandale notebook processor will offer switchable graphics, this feature will enable you to use the CPU's 45nm IGP module to preserve battery life and switch to a discrete graphics card when you need some more horsepower.
The Arrandale graphics will be able to work with spreadsheets and some basic operations such as Windows Aero, while the discrete chip could take over if you would need more power for your CPU.

Naturally the Clarksfield quad-core notebook CPU, scheduled to launch in Q3 2009, won't support this feature as neither CPU or Mobile series 5 chipset don't have an integrated graphics card.
ATI and NVIDIA have been toying with switchable graphics before, but it didn't gain a lot of ground.
