    2013 is 4 years away, and also, that's after "2012". 'nuf said.

    p.s. the last sentence that goes "....thoughts in the forums" doesn't seem to have a link.

    Am I the only one that considers a GPU on the same die with a CPU and IGP? It's still integrated, just not on the chipset =P

    the IGP moves from the chipset to the CPU ... its still there ... wish I had a job researching the obvious :<

    I am not a fan for integrating the gpu into the cpu for desktops for the simple reason that it means you have to have at least two different types of socket.

    My first thought was that by 2013 our office apps will have developed to the point where they need a super GPU that's just too hot and power-hungry for an integrated solution... :rock:

    so right now you can take a motherboard with an IGP and remove it? oh wait you cant so a CPU with a GPU is not an IGP lol but yes once CPU become common place with some for of a GPU with it then of course there will be no need for an IGP except for maybe systems with say a VIA cpu unless they plan to do the same thing.

    Well hopefully, if they do end up integrating videocards into CPU's, they'll at least be mid-range powerful, rather than poor-as-hell.

    A kid with a crayon draws images better than Intel's mid-range graphics solutions.

    Actually, that's intel's next plan: supply 20 asian children for in the basement that draw etch-o-sketch panels.
