quote: This circumstance was slightly different though since the GMA950 didn't have any hardware VS or T&L which severely limited it's performance (to say the least) even if it had 4PS to the Xpress 200's 2PS + 1VS.
quote: The GMA X3000 uses PowerVR SGX technology and tiling which isn't as dependant on memory bandwidth and probably includes larger internal buffers to offset that.
quote: Although the tiling based seems similar to PowerVR based architectures, I doubt its based on the latest SGX. The SGX derived ones are supposed to be on Intel's Stanwood, which is successor to 2700G multimedia accelerator used in PDA's. Stanwood is now cancelled however. It was also rumored that next generation graphics core from Intel for PDAs feature shader technology(sounds like SGX).
