'Virtual Fences' not enough for Variant 4, sources say.
Unlikely to appear in Skylake, though.
New drivers boost framerates, battery life.
Top-end IGP may be exclusive to BGA parts.
We test AMD's latest 880G IGP graphics to see how it stacks up against the competition.
We've got our hands on the two latest AMD motherboards from Gigabyte. Featuring the latest AMD 880G and 890FX chipsets, one is designed to be all the motherboard you could ever want, while the other is a more modest micro-ATX offering. How do they look? Click to find out!
AMD's latest 8-series integrated graphics chipset: the 880G, will not be a real evolution of the 785G it seems.
A £40 graphics card? Surely that's as useful as a chocolate teapot? We take a look at AMD's latest and cheapest Radeon from the HD 5000 series, the HD5450, see how it stacks up against integrated graphics and find out in what situations it might be a great buy.
After something a full ATX motherboard with integrated graphics that doesn't break the bank? The Asus M4A785TD-V Evo is based on AMD's new 785G chipset, and also has 128MB of DDR3 sideport memory.
In conjunction with AMD's new 785G chipset, the elaborately named Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H is setup for AM3 and DDR3 support, as well as the latest integrated graphics with nifty home theatre features to boot. Is it worth the upgrade from 780G and how does it compare to a discrete HD 4350?
The next generation revision of Nvidia's Ion platform is likely to double the shaders from 16 to 32 - or higher - offering far greater graphics performance for netbooks.
Comments from industry sources have it that Intel has stepped up plans for its 32nm Clarkdale chips, moving mass production from 2010 to the last quarter of this year.
Quad-core and triple-core Athlon-branded CPUs are rumoured to be scheduled for release later this year.
Jon Peddie Research predicts that motherboards chipsets with integrated graphics will have a market share of just one percent by 2013
There's little doubt that Intel's Atom has been a success, but it's been ultimately let down by the high power, and poorly featured graphics of the associated chipset. Looking to right this wrong, Nvidia IONs Intel's Atom into shape.
No, you're not reading that wrong - Zotac is the first with the new Nvidia integrated graphics chipset for Intel CPUs. We take the potentially popular budget and HTPC platform and give it a work through to see if Zotac can make motherboards just as well as graphics cards.
Nvidia's latest Intel MCP with integrated 9-series graphics has arrived, and we get to grips with its specs and new features to see if this could be a real G45 or even P45 killer.
We test AMD's latest IGP, the 790GX, on Gigabyte's new board to see if the new integrated graphics and Hybrid CrossFire are a performance hit, and if the new chipset pair can really makes a difference.
We've got the low down on exactly what AMD's new "performance-leading" integrated graphics northbridge offers, in addition to its latest southbridge which is apparently primed for some super-overclocking. Has the AMD platform finally come good again?
COMPUTEX 08: We found 5 minutes and a free 790GX/SB750 to take apart for you. We also overheard AMD will be launching a new CPU when this chipset arrives too.
Nvidia's latest GeForce 8200 IGP is (finally) here and we take a look at a special little mini-ITX motherboard from Jetway to see if High-Definition capable things can really come in small packages.
AMD's Technical Director of Sales and Marketing has said that its next-gen CPU architecture will be "completely different" from Phenom.
IDF SPRING 08: Dadi Perlmutter showed Intel's next-gen Montevina mobile platform running several 3D games. He said it'll double IGP performance in games.
AMD has launched its new 780G integrated graphics chipset today which sees the beginning of a revolution. We take a closer look to see if it's any better than the already awesome AMD 690G.
We have a look at three mATX motherboards from Asus, Gigabyte and MSI based on three of the latest integrated graphics chipsets from Intel, AMD and Nvidia to see which is the best solution for a Home Theatre PC.
While we usually wait for full reviews, we just had to show you what arrived today: AMD's new RS780 IGP and SB700 south bridge.
After spending most of Friday afternoon talking with several Nvidia representatives about its Hybrid SLI technology, we're back again today to add some more insight into it. We've got more information on display support, the mGPU and some future considerations.
On the morning of CES, Nvidia announced its Hybrid SLI technology. Rather than rushing out a quick article, we decided to spend time doing some real analysis of what was discussed. Read on to find out how this exciting technology is shaping up.
Possibly the perfect Home Theatre PC barebones - the SN68PTG5 looks fantastic, has integrated graphics with HDMI out and is attractively priced. Has Shuttle made something we all want under our TVs?
The Intel G35 is barely out the door and already the details of the successors, due in just six months, have leaked onto the net.
IDF FALL 07: Intel says it will propel integrated graphics performance by a factor of ten by 2010. Will this be enough to take on Fusion?
Biostar has one of the first Nvidia GeForce 7050 integrated graphics motherboards with HDMI and HDCP on-board. Does it give AMD's 690G chipset a run for its money?
VIA's EPIA range goes from strength to strength and the latest upgrade to the EX provides a 1.5GHz CPU, DDR2, DVI and component output on-board, with frugal power requirements compared to anything else on the market. How does it stand up to the mighty AMD 690G chipset? We find out.
AMD's 690 series chipsets launched earlier this week and it's a much needed refresh to AMD/ATI's integrated chipset product line. We preview 690G's performance potential before getting down and dirty with the boards over the next week or so.
Do you have a computer that runs integrated graphics, but wish you had that high-def DVI output? Sapphire's ADD2 card can help.
