Intel's Next Integrated Graphics Solution

By Dave

It looks like the next integrated graphics solution will be Intel’s Graphics Media Accelerator 950 core which will bring DirectX 9 Pixel Shader 3.0 and HDMI support to cheap desktop PC’s everywhere.

So suggest presentation slides purportedly from Intel and posted on Chinese-language website HKEPC last week. The slides claim CVT will incorporate “advanced” de-interlacing, MPEG 2 hardware acceleration, HDMI support, backing for Microsoft’s WMV9b HD codec, full floating-point precision operations, and the ProcAMP brightness, contrast, saturation and hue calibration API, itself supported by DirectX’s DirectShow component.

Does anyone know if this will be enough to run Windows Vista with any level of graphics? Does anyone even run Integrated graphics anymore? (Laptop users excluded)
