It supports Pixel Shader 2. Intel explains why on their website here: Presumably this is due to the lack of a “hardware scheduler” in the GPU. Intel developed a new set of low power graphics architecture based on PowerVR.

Mac OS X It features 80 shading units, 10 texture mapping units and 1 ROPs. How satisfied are you with this reply? JoelbX Replied on November 4, The kntel consists of different clock domains, meaning that the entire chip does not operate the same clock speed. Many of the advantages of the new GMA architecture come from the ability to flexibly switch as needed between executing graphics-related tasks or video-related tasks.


It is based more directly on the previous generation GMA and GMA graphics, and belonging to the same “i” family with them. In addition, hardware video acceleration such as hardware-based iDCT computation, ProcAmp video stream independent color correctionand VC-1 decoding are not implemented in hardware.
