Intel’s G Express chipset – The Tech Report – Page 1

This technology is available on all Intel G Express Chipset-based platforms and is designed specifically to meet the changing needs of the digital home user. Hardware assist is supported for high-definition MPEG2 video playback, as well. The first caveat we should mention involves shader execution units, which we’ve not even included in the table above because simple comparisons between the GMA X and the others are tricky.

This isn’t your average integrated graphics core, though. Also, according to an intriguing discussion hereIntel looks to be using the GMA X’s execution units to handle triangle setup, a chore assigned to dedicated hardware in the other IGPs.

Intel went nitel out with the X, crafting a graphics core with a unified shader architecture that sports eight Shader Model 3. Jeff Kampman This is clearly a yield-maximizing move for 7 nm.

No, it’s the ubiquity of Intel’s integrated graphics chipsets that have allowed it to carve out the largest share of the desktop graphics market. Thank You for Submitting Your Review,! A typical pixel has four components red, green, blue, and alphaexprsss the GMA X can really only process two complete pixels per clock cycle.

Integrated graphics processors typically lack dedicated vertex processing hardware, instead preferring to offload those calculations onto the CPU.

What we may be seeing here is the result of different clock domains for the shader processors and the IGP’s back end; the GeForce has a similar arrangement. We expect, though, that not all of the GMA X runs at MHz, as the strange numbers in the “pixels per clock” and “textures per clock” entries in the table above suggest.
