Cebit 08: Much better graphics


Patrick Moorehaed
just showcased an MSI notebook based on Puma. It works and it is in good shape. MSI will be launching Puma-based notebooks around Computex and AMD wanted to demonstrate that the marchitecture is the way it should be.

AMD also promises three to four times performance in graphics over the current notebook IGPs, but you should not be surprised as this platform is powered by a mobile 780G chipset.

AMD has high hopes and what Pat didn’t mention is the fact that many notebook manufacturers will do switchable graphics, where IGP will render in battery mode while discrete graphics will kick in on the the grid.

I guess we have been waiting for this for quite some time, at least on the graphics side, but the modified K8 Griffin doesn’t really sound like the greatest CPU for 2008.
