Financial analysts say Ivy Bridge kills the discrete graphics card

Posted on Wednesday, May 02 2012 @ 13:10:30 CEST by

Tom's Hardware reports financial analyst firm Five Star Equities believes that the ingrated graphics of Intel's Ivy Bridge are good enough for 95 percent of computer users. The report says Ivy Bridge essentially kills the discrete graphics card, because only a small percentage of the market now needs high-performance graphics cards:
Financial background about Intel released today by financial analyst firm Five Star Equities confirms in that sentiment and indicates that the financial community has, for the first in more than 5 years, high expectations in Intel's opportunity in the chip market. Five Star Equities states that Ivy Bridge essentially kills the discrete graphics card because the integrated graphics of the CPU would be good enough for 95 percent of computer users.

"There is a very small market of people who seek out high-performance graphics cards, mostly comprised of hardcore gamers," the report reads. "The improved graphics provided by the Ivy Bridge chips will likely satisfy the needs of the average consumer."

The report also quotes industry analyst Jack Gold, who said that "extreme gamers who want very powerful graphics cards are in a niche market already, and it's shrinking." Gold continued and noted that Nvidia may be in trouble, "because their graphics chip market is falling off faster than their mobile chip market."
