Intel HD3000 vs HD4000 around 60% increase, Llano vs Trinity around 56% increase, 4% gain??? "An analyst said the chips will narrow archrival AMD’s lead in graphics performance" hardly narrowed anything really! Mouth open and tongue moves, no thought.

ha-ha .. HD4000 still can`t beat the old AMD chip, never-mind the new Trinity LOL... Journalism at its best! (There used to be a time when questioning/correcting things were priority)

I would love to see benchmark comparisons between Intel and AMD. Any one know when this will happen? The article is interesting but does not have any hard facts just historical data. Well we will just have to wait, I guess.

Check this out, "Putting this all together, Intel will substantially narrow the gap with AMD for integrated graphics capabilities in 2012. Actual product level performance depends on pricing, binning and the market. For instance, Intel has an edge for very low power designs due to process technology. The 22nm FinFETs are exceptionally efficient at low voltage and it is likely that Ivy Bridge will match Trinity for 17W designs. At 25-35W for conventional notebooks, Intel should trail by around 20%, which is close enough to be competitive. Looking to desktops though, AMD will have a substantial advantage and the performance gap may be much higher." http://www.realworldtech.com/page.cfm?ArticleID=RWT042212225031 Things do not look that rosy for AMD.

I was actually impressed with what Intel has done with Ivy GPU from reading David Kanter's article, linked by vdara above. The decision of what technology to include is quite complicated. The economics of real estate, power and risk are daunting. Intel, and the industry have much at stake.

We are a few weeks out from an AMD Trinity launch which will hopefully include those benchmarks.

That article is based on one mans opinion! A quote, "likely that Ivy Bridge will match Trinity for 17W designs" and this is based on what evidence? AMD states that the 17w chip will be the same level performance as a 35w Llano A83500, so my guess is, that trinity at 17w will still be a good 30% faster (GPU) than the equivalent ivy bridge chip. Roll on HSA!

My four-year old laptop just gave up the ghost. I will be looking at these very seriously. I suspect that the benchmark comparisons will be coming very quickly. Several of the PC enthusiast sites have been hinting that they have sample Ivy Bridge-based systems in hand and under test. Larry M.

Indeed, better word choice is "imitate"
