    Hmm, even 10x almost nothing .. in 3 years ? they'll probably still be at the point that major game engine developers say they wish they'd cut it out and stop making them ;p

    Larrabee sounds vaguely interesting, though even if it is relatively easy to develop for, presumably a cpu-based implementation will still be vastly different from what major graphic engine developers have been designing and working with and the hardware industry has been developing graphics cards around ? surely ?

    Intel might have the corporate power to launch physics processors into the mainstream though.

    Edit add : morning tim :)

    the IGP on the CPU is interesting because if done right it will remove any process delay caused by the FSB or similar.

    I think discrete graphics will still have a place for those who need more powerful solutions (however this will certainly be a kick in the pants for notebooks)

    I argee.. 10x increase in 3 years is almost nothing. 20x to 30x would be nice to get gaming on IGP going.
