    Can't wait to see nVidia to cave in on the free technology they charge premium on it.

    Some probably do, people don't only play the most recent AAA blockbusters.

    If/when Intel enter the discrete GPU market, then maybe more people will, but probably not.

    I reckon there will be a few adopters when they release their dGPU in 2020.

    Well yes, that's a whole different kettle of fish though.

    Well if you want more immediate implications, perhaps look at the Freesync on Nvidia reports recently, ma=de possible by using an AMD APU and standard windows 10 features.

    Re: Intel confirms interest in Adaptive Sync Technology

    Just imagine the disruption to the market if Intel released a decent integrated graphics chip that would replace the mid range GPUs. They'd solve their CPU redundancy problem over a few years. CPUs just aren't flying off the shelves these days as a 5 year old one does just fine for gaming and is still very responsive. I remember the days of yore when a PC needed constant upgrades to keep it going. RAM needed to be added to keep up with ever increasing demands and CPUs would need upgrading every 2-3 years as the tech was progressing as were the demands on games.

    So what to do about it? Integrate the CPU and GPU but make sure the GPU is good enough to render discrete graphics pointless for most people, small enough to integrate into a package with a CPU but NOT good enough to last more than 2 years of games progress. Us lot, well, we'd just go out and get a discrete graphics card but now Intel can claim it's all in one package, get people who aren't savvy (*) to perhaps not even realise that discrete graphics are available or even make them soldered onto boards without a PCI-E GPU connector. Then you start to build up the PC sales pace again with your evil plan. And for those who do realise you can have a separate GPU, well just sell them an Intel one based on the "fact" that it'll "be fully compatible with your Intel CPU".

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAAA

    *I think we forget just how ignorant most people are about PCs. We fling around terms like CPU and GPU and PCI lanes like they're normal parlance but they're really not. I once told someone at work that I'd built my own PC and she (a clever person with a degree or two) couldn't grasp the idea that someone who is technically a layperson actualy assembled the stuff within the magic pixie box. If Intel starts distributing PCs which are all integrated with decent graphics but only have a shelf life of 2 years AND push them with manufacturers like they did the ultrabooks, people will buy into it, be ignorant of the fact that they're being soundly ripped off and get locked into a 2-3 year upgrade cycle because they have no idea what goes on in "the box" (or "the hard drive" - god I HATE it when people call it that).

    Sounds about right.

    Most PCs sold are laptops, so Intel just have to do a deal where they bundle the GPU at a reduced price if you buy the CPU and a lot of laptops would end up with Intel graphics.
