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.
Intel’s SIMD Accelerator Gives Better Graphics, Saves Energy

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