Haswell Won't Eliminate the Need for GPUs
The latest CPU family from Intel, Haswell, has improved graphics performance relative to previous generations of Intel CPUs. A recent interview with VP and GM of computing products at NVIDIA Rene Haas has pointed out that the integrated graphics are still far from the performance of discrete GPUs. The area where the most glaring differences can be seen is when gaming, where integrated graphics are still well short of the power required to play the latest games. Haas feels that the improved performance of Haswell will even help NVIDIA in the notebook market segment.
