Gaming grade is ambiguous. Many new games require a minimum of either a Radeon 850 or Geforce 6600 or greater and won't work with anything else. The point I was trying to make was they should try to be compatible with a Radeon 8500 even if it isn't as fast as a real one. At least they would be a hope of running some newer games on the low power chip.

Hard to believe it consumes 10-20W only! What process technology are talking about here? Does anybody know?

DirectX-11 capable means a gaming-grade GPU (depending on hardcore you are). I think embedded graphics would be mostly static images and very light CPU loading. What's the power consumption then?

Competition for Intel's Atom is good. But I'm suspicious of it's graphics capability. If it had said it was compatible with Radeon graphics, it would raised an eyebrow.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
