The Register's Desktop Integrated Graphics Shootout

Comments(0)Filed under: Logic Design, power, performance, graphicsThe Register recently did a pretty exhaustive test of the latest generation of graphics chips, working with different processors.  The results were pretty interesting, but a couple things jumped out at me.  First, I realize that for these chips it's all about performance, but they range from 50-100W when idle.  I think it's time to start looking at power shutoff techniques, even if it does add to the verification complexity.  In the end it should reduce overall system cooling costs.  The other thing that jumped out is the interdependence between these chips' performance and power, and the microprocessors they were paired with.  That highlights the importance of software emulation, not just for verification but also to make sure your throughput and power consumption are in line with what you expect.  Anyway, here is the link to the article:
