Ivy Bridge GPU to support 4K resolutions

Written by Slobodan Simic

Capable of playing multiple 4K videos too

We already wrote that Intel's Ivy Bridge will have a decent GPU that should end up about 60 percent faster than the one used in Sandy Bridge processors, but now VR-Zone came up with yet another new detail that will make this GPU even more interesting, support for 4K resolution.

As you already know, the maximum supported resolution for the Sandy Bridge topped out at WQXGA, or 2560x1600, but the upcoming Ivy Bridge GPU will have, what Intel calls, Multi Format Codec or MFX engine. According to Intel, thanks to MFX, Ivy Bridge GPU won't only be able to support the 4Kx4K resolution but will also be capable of playing multiple 4K videos at the same time. It has the capability to handle video processing for 4K QuadHD video.

Of course, the talk of improved GPU has been around for a while but for now it looks like Intel's Ivy Bridge might have a decent integrated GPU that will raise an eyebrow or two.

The same people who play games on integrated graphics?

4k videos. HAHA where are the screens,monitor s and tvs. And if they are available they would cost more than an entire ivy bridge computer. Any gpu made in the last 4 years can support 4k with a software update so it's no big deal.But I would pay to see someone play any video game on ivy at 4k with good framerates. hahaahah what stupidty :-| ;-) :-) :lol: :D

Not taking gaming into account, the integrated graphics used in i7-2600 (I use one at work) is already enough for everyone. Lower power use, video decoding support and rendering buildings in Google Earth is all that an integrated graphic card needs to do, everything over is just an extra.

My 24" monitor has 1920x1200 resolution. I don't have any use for anything over that.

Perfect for down-sampling . :lol:

This is BS. Intel can't write a damn driver for regular HD, let alone 4K.

The GPU is being used more and more everyday. Webbrowsers are beginning to use the GPU for the interface, rendering and computation. Modern OS's will also use the GPU more and more and will also begin to use computation.

Even now on an idle win7 desktop it uses 207MB video memory!

Whatever they say... this is still the slowest GPU in the bunch.

Actually, I think everyone here may be missing the point. The feature might be targeting multi-monitor displays, like those seen at airports, hotels, malls, etc.. Think about a very cheap computer able to play super-HD videos on those custom displays.
