Intel "Intel has revealed the launch specs for the first-ever line of x86 products that contain both a GPU and CPU on the same die. Pine Trail, the next-generation Atom platform, will pave the way for future integrated CPU/GPU parts from both Intel and AMD."

the only reason i am excited about this at all is that these chips are good for embeded purposes and I am looking forward to having board support pachages for QNX. that aside I will be sticking with ION based deveices for small form factor products. this things doesnt even support direct x10 (to the best of my knowledge).

I hope that QNX - x86 was given for free for non-commercial purposes since they will support the chipset. (I asked for a hobbyist licence and they never answered back). On the other hand, count me in for 510.

Any body remember MediaGX chip, which integrate not only video ut sound also into the CPU? I think that will be the first ever x86 chip that have video. ^_^

I never heard of it, though it sounds a very-very-very wise and cross-OS solution. I wish we have such chipsets with standardized exposed GFX API.

It was a great concept, but based around a horrible-performing Cyrix CPU core, which pretty much killed it commercially.

What GPU does it include?

Does this use the GMA 500 / Poulsbo? I really hope it doesn't... The GMA 500 is definitely more efficient that Intel's own GPUs, but there basically is no working Linux driver. They are working on a new one, but it is closed source. I wouldn't really mind that much, but I'm planning on getting a netbook eventually, and I would really like to try using Wayland on it, which will definitely not work with a closed source driver.

So, what GPU does this chip have?
