    Low power video for 2d? Physics chip?

    Sounds good!

    I'm wondering how this will effect motherboard manufacturing costs, considering you would no longer need to build the video onto the board. This sort of thing would be amazing for an HTPC. Or as mentioned, using it for physics in a game while having a Crossfire setup for video. Either way, lots of potential.

    no
    this is taking a traditional GPU and putting it ondie with a traditional x86 CPU

    intel are making a gpu out of lots of small x86 cores
