Playing StarCraft II without a separate GPU

facebooktwittergoogle_plus

This is not a separate graphics card with a GPU, neither is it integrated graphics as we have come to know it. It’s graphics on the processor itself, also known as System on Chip (SoC). Over at the Intel Developer Forum here in San Francisco, this StarCraft II (SC2) demo showcased the next generation processor codenamed "Sandy Bridge", compared against discrete graphics which is basically a separate GPU as gamers are more accustomed to. See and believe.

Intel did not reveal too much details about the pricing and availability of this processor which should be launched as second generation to the current Core i series processors in the market. Good news with Intel is, you won’t have to wait 12 years for it like you waited for SC2.
