GPUs Increasingly Embedded in PC Chipsets

Only high-performance graphics in stand-alone versions
by Adrian Offerman

October 23, 2007 - Graphics processors (GPUs, Graphics Processing Units) are increasingly integrated in the PC chipsets. According to In-Stat, the majority of general business and consumer graphics processors will transition to integrated implementations. In the future, only high-performance graphics will continue to be offered in both integrated and standalone versions.

With chipsets now sporting functions such as memory control, USB, IEEE 1394 (FireWire), and now graphics, they are growing into much more than their humble beginnings as glue logic, said Ian Lao, analyst at In-Stat.
