Intel: Graphics performance on laptops is not that important

Posted on Monday, March 08 2010 @ 06:25:47 CET by

Intel Executive Vice President David Perlmutter spoke at an investor conference this week that graphics performance is not that important on laptops, while complementing AMD's strategy and giving some comments about the mobile phone market as well. You can read it over here.
Responding to a question about whether graphics technology is becoming more important, Perlmutter said, "When people think about graphics, they think about 3D war games and more realism. I'm not going to dismiss this, but (this market) attracts a relatively small amount of people." Making comments a few minutes later, he said: "I think what a significant portion of consumers really want is media." He added that more time is spent watching and editing video on laptops and that gaming was less of a factor.

Perlmutter continued, "I don't think who has better graphics makes a huge difference...the functionality beyond graphics is what's important," he said, adding that integrating more functions into the main processor and battery life is more important.
