Intel It's the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, so it's time for new stuff to spend your hard-earned cash on. This time around, Intel is making headlines by officially launching its Sandy Bridge line of processors, which, up until now, were totally next-generation.

The all new 2010 Intel Core processor family is the first to integrate graphics into mainstream PC processor


I guess he means desktop? I thought laptops are the mainstream these days, and desktops are for enthusiasts...

Intel's GMA HD, which replaced the GMA 4500M HD, was integrated in the CPU. The Intel HD Graphics 3000 goes a step further and is now directly on the die. This is the "tock" phase of Intel's "tick-tock" release schedule. In other words, it's an entirely new microarchitecture targeted at PCs. Speaking of which, I'm always stunned to find that people rely on Wikipedia as a primary source for information. I'm even more stunned when a Wikipedia article has more accurate information than an average person on a pretty common topic. For example: "A personal computer (PC) is any general-purpose computer whose size, capabilities, and original sales price make it useful for individuals, and which is intended to be operated directly by an end-user with no intervening computer operator." Desktops and laptops are just PCs, and yes, Apple sells a lot of PCs despite it's "Mac vs. PC" ads.

It's a catch up to AMD play.
