    I've always wondered...Why isn't there an IGP solution for the enthusiast on a budget?

    Who wouldn't want to have a X700 or GF6600 IGP solution? That would be good enough for

    THe 9700 Pro with 8 pipelines. Reply

    This sounds like a sweet application for a low cost gaming laptop dependent on the memory bandwidth of the solution (esp looking at single channel socket 754 format, a thing most laptops are).

    Now this, I think, is worth waiting for (if it is indeed going to be here by end of year). An X700 based IGP would be great. I know several people who don't game on PC's much and they would love these. I would assume they'll beat the just released 6150's. And I assume many will have at least decent sound, maybe even pretty darn good sound. The more I think about it the more I like it. Reply

    They don't have to win, they just have to prove they can do it, which they're doing with the other masters. I'm not saying it was in any way a good idea to put them so far out, but I doubt they had any real choice. Reply

    isnt the X700 just a faster version of the x600? and the x600 was similar to the radeon 9600? Reply

    X700 is R410 and is 8 pixel, 6 vertex pipelines. X600 is RV380 and has 4 pixel, 2 vertex. Needless to say, the X700 is significantly better than X600. X600 is in many ways just a slightly faster version of X300. Reply

    Really, is ATI even trying any more with this generation? January gives Nvidia another 2 months to run amok, never mind whatever future products they have in the pipeline. Reply
