Intel has signed memory supply deals with German memory vendors to secure supply for its upcoming graphics cards.
According to The Inq, memory makers are lining up 512MB and 1GB GDDR5 memory for Intel. They also report Intel will start sampling its first new GPU in the second half of 2008.
Final parts can reportedly be expected between Christmas 2008 and the first quarter of 2009. Specs-wise, The Inq maintains that its previous report about the GPU having 16 x86-based in-order cores, a programmable pipeline, and a modular architecture are true.
