Core Graphics


The core graphics card is Intel’s new generation graphics processing core. Unlike previous graphics card designs, Intel relies on its The core and the processing core are integrated on the same substrate to form a complete processor.

This design integration greatly reduces the data turnaround time between the processing core, graphics core, memory and memory controller, effectively improving processing performance and greatly reducing the overall power consumption of the chipset, which helps to reduce The size of the core components has been improved, providing more options for the design of notebooks, all-in-ones and other products.

It should be noted that the core graphics card is not the same as the integrated graphics card in the traditional sense (that is, the onboard graphics card). The graphics solutions adopted by the notebook platform are mainly "independent" and "integrated". The former has a separate graphics core and independent video memory, which can meet the needs of complex graphics processing and provide efficient video encoding applications; onboard graphics cards The graphics core is integrated on the motherboard as a separate chip, and part of the system memory is dynamically shared for use as video memory, so it can provide simple graphics processing capabilities and smoother coding applications. Compared with the first two, the core graphics card integrates the graphics core into the processor, further enhancing the efficiency of graphics processing, and integrates the "processor + south bridge + north bridge (graphic core + memory control + display output) in the onboard graphics card. )" The three-chip solution is reduced to a dual-chip mode of "processor (processing core + graphics core + memory control) + motherboard chip (display output)", which effectively reduces the overall power consumption of core components and is more conducive to extending the battery life of the notebook Time.


Core graphics cards have come to us with Intel smart processors, playing an increasingly powerful role in graphics processing.

In the smart processor we are using, the core graphics card uses the 45nm process technology, and the processing core uses the 32nm process technology. Therefore, the two are only placed on the same substrate, not packaged in the true sense. Within the same core. However, with the development of technology, in Intel’s next-generation smart processor SandyBridge, the graphics core will also use advanced 32nm process technology, truly integrated with the processing core, providing efficient graphics processing performance, and support for graphics switching, DX11, A series of superior technologies such as SM4.0, OpenGL2.0, and Full HD MPEG2/H.264/VC-1 format decoding.

In addition, Intel's unique Turbo Boost smart acceleration technology will also be applied to the core graphics card in the future. It will not only improve the computing performance of the processor, but also provide dynamic overclocking of the built-in graphics core. Therefore, the performance of the new generation of core graphics cards will be greatly improved, and can even meet the application requirements of mainstream games.

Technical advantages

Low power consumption

Low power consumption is the main advantage of the core graphics card. Due to the new streamlined architecture and integrated design, the core graphics card has an impact on the overall The control of energy consumption is more excellent, and the efficient processing performance greatly shortens the calculation time, and further reduces the energy consumption of the system platform.

High performance

The core graphics card has many advantages, which can bring sufficient graphics processing power. Compared with the previous generation products, its performance is very obvious. The core graphics card can support DX10, DX11.1, SM4.0, OpenGL2.0, and Full HD Full HD MPEG2/H.264/VC-1 format decoding technologies. The performance dynamic adjustment that will be added soon can greatly improve the performance of the core graphics card. The processing power makes it fully meet the needs of ordinary users.


WiDi (WirelessDisplay) wireless high-definition technology is a unique application extension technology of Intel's core graphics card. It is based on 802.11n WiFi technology, and there is no need to add any special hardware on the notebook side. As long as a dedicated receiver is connected to the TV, the display content of the notebook can be sent to the TV wirelessly.
