The Inquirer writes Intel may be trying to get into the discrete graphics card market. One of the reasons for this is because Windows Vista's Aero demands more graphics horsepower, creating a bigger customer pool for the discrete graphics business.
INTEL MAY or may not be planning to introduce a discrete graphics chip to coincide with Microsoft Vista, but it's going to need a pole to achieve the vault.
While Intel has a large stable of highly competent programmers, writing drivers for the Aero desktop is a whole different kettle of fish.
Vista will be the first of Microsoft's operating systems to relate directly to hardware features on PCs.
