Intel Details are sparse, but Intel has let out word of a spiffy new graphics accelerator designed for mobile devices. This SIMD (Single Instruction, Multiple Data) accelerator renders graphics more efficiently than any other available component in that it renders them faster and at higher quality and-- here's the kicker-- it consumes ten times less energy than similar available components, providing longer battery life. Again, there's not much to go on at the moment, but Intel says that these lovely little buggers will definitely be showing up in future mobile devices be they MIDs, UMPCs, or netbooks.

I guess that's relative when applied to Intel's graphics offerings.

Is this designed for use with atom or for use with arm v9 parts? I wonder how it compares with NEON on a cortex a-8 ?

Very scant on details here.

This is all nice and wonderful. But does it do stem cell computing like the Zii chip? :-)
