Apple to rely on Intel’s Sandy Bridge graphics in future MacBooks, AMD GPUs in MacBook Pros?

Apple to rely on Intel’s Sandy Bridge graphics in future MacBooks, AMD GPUs in MacBook Pros?

Stan&Dam vous propose désormais de suivre leur lifestream. Il s’agit de mettre en avant des informations intéressantes vues sur le web, et de les faire partager à la communauté du site S&D. Stan a remarqué dans ses flux RSS le sujet suivant :

Apple will use Intel’s Sandy Bridge CPUs in its future laptops, no surprises there, but what’s interesting about these forthcoming machines is that some of them might rely solely on Intel’s chip for both general and graphical processing tasks. That’s the word from the usual « sources familiar with Apple’s plans, » who expect « MacBook models with screen sizes of 13 inches and below » to eschew the inclusion of a discrete GPU and ride their luck on the improved graphical performance of Intel’s upcoming do-it-all chip. There are currently no sub-13.3-inch MacBooks, so the suggestion of one is surely intriguing, but the major point here seems to be that NVIDIA’s being left out of the Apple party, because MacBook Pros are also predicted to switch up to AMD-provided graphics hardware. All these changes should be taking place with Apple’s next refresh, which is naturally expected at some point in the new year.

Et le j’aime / j’aime pas d’Engadget:
Hardware = mouais, c’est propre sans être top avec toujours le problème du jack non standard. Ecran fragile, touche de clavier pas top.
Software = bon point pour les widgets, la bar de statuts et les gros icônes, pas bon sur la fonction musique, navigateur internet excellent mais pas de multitouch enfin les google app sont excellentes
