Will Intel's Timna be a graphics turnoff?

Cos you can't turn the graphics off

Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Intel Developer Forum When Intel's system-on-a-chip part, Timna, is introduced, it will be incorporated in sub-$600 devices but will include a subset of the 810 graphics capabilities. And there's no way this solution, which hasn't appealed to many people because of its limited functionality, can be tweaked to switch the graphics function off, Intel confirmed today. The inclusion of 810 graphics capability is also unlikely to appeal wildly to a number of third party graphics chip firms, which already feel that their margins are super slim and their market is over competitive. Intel, however, maintains that any lack of graphics capabilities in low price machines using the Timna will not matter. Hmm. We wonder. Wasn't there a company called Cyrix which attempted to come up with a bright idea a bit similar to this and couldn't sell the parts because of their limited functionality? ®
