Intel AnandTech puts Intel's new Ivy Bridge through its paces. "While it's not enough to tempt existing Sandy Bridge owners, if you missed the upgrade last year then Ivy Bridge is solid ground to walk on. It's still the best performing client x86 architecture on the planet and a little to a lot better than its predecessor depending on how much you use the on-die GPU."

Intel's business practices have been suspect for the last two decades, what makes you think they've changed?

Oh, sure - blame them for what they're doing *now*, under their current management team. But boycotting a company for something it did decades ago just doesn't make sense - the people responsible for their current behaviour aren't responsible for that.

No, you have to keep it in mind as part of their history of douchbaggery.

Only a few more weeks till the Trinity series comes out and Intel's HD Graphics 4000 can't even keep up with last gen's HD6550D, the HD7660D on the A10 series APUs are gonna crush these things where it actually matters for the majority of the market, the general consumer. They may not notice when theres a few more seconds shaved off their MP3 rips, but they do notice when the GPU sucks even though they don't know to attribute the skipping, the lag and the low video quality to the GPU.

If you don't think it matters then why is there so much push for WebGL? Why are game companies making non Flash full 3D games that launch via the browser?

Assured to be installed GPUs that don't suck in the low end consumer market creates a whole new industry.
