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.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
