Wasn't there some sort of new CPU coming out that replaced the GPU

Not sure if im thinking of Haswell or not, but I think I read somewhere a while ago that there was a new CPU in the works that would work as a GPU as well? Anyone know what I'm talking about?

APU

yes

they i belive are a little better than integrated Vcards

but dedicated video cards are still much better option to go with

i do hope, however, they continue to increase the performance with those

There have been integrated graphics in chips for quite some time now. The latest AMD apu's and Intel's HD4000 series have been able to do quite well with console quality+ titles.

HASWELL CPUs were designed to have better graphics for those without a discrete

You're thinking of either AMD's APUs, or the integrated GPUs on Intel CPUs. Ivy Bridge has Intel HD 4000 integrated GPUs, and Haswell will have Intel HD 5000. The 5000 is supposed to be a pretty decent jump in performance. I used 4000 for about a week while waiting for a GPU on my new build to arrive....it ran X-Com: Enemy Unknown on low settings at about 20 FPS. Supposedly it does pretty well on most other current games.

They are definitely not designed to *replace* GPUs, but they do better than old-style integrated. Dedicated performance GPUs still rule in terms of gaming tho, hands down.

Intel HD 5200 (the best non dedicated GPU graphics solution on the market right now) is comparable with a GTX 650m, so a lot of power, but still a very long way from CPUs replacing GPUs.

I estimate that in about 4 more CPU generations at the current rate of integrated graphics growth, Discrete GPUs will no longer be worth the money.

Pretty sure nVidia suspects this as well which is why they're making a super hard push for their Tegra chipset.

Aren't the newer IGP / APU comparable to the processing capabilities of PS3 / Xbox360 (aka the current console)? Nothing breathtaking by PC standards.... but it's pretty amazing if you think about it.
