Default Intel claims to have high end video card by 2009

Up to 16x speedier than current performance champ from the NVIDIA the G80, quite a bold claim don't you think?

"Their first flagship product for games and graphics intensive applications is likely to happen in late 2008-09 timeframe and the GPU is based on multi-core architecture. We heard there could be as many as 16 graphics cores packed into a single die. The performance? How about 16x performance of any fastest graphics card out there now [referring to G80] as claimed.

You gotta be kidding me...

...then again, they were pretty much right with their 40% performance claims with Conroe... hmm. I think we'd need to double the PCIe x16 slot's bandwidth (again) to use something with that power, no?

G90 and R700 oughta be double the current generation, but if they are to be believed that'd still make Intel's GPU 8x faster, or did I get that wrong? I bet Intel will have the best drivers of them all, regardless...

2009 is far away and multicore isn't that complicated to get fast, if you look at how good the quadcores work that are basically just 4 singlecores glued together.


I assume that they want to make an advance in the medium segment with onboard graphics and need to overcome the bad image of intel extreme graphics.

16x, that would be 4x faster then NVIDIA and ATI cards at that time (assuming we are 2 generations further in 2009). Unbelievable, just like their 10GHz CPU...
