Fujitsu-Siemens Esprimo Mobile U Each pipeline can process video, vertex, or texture operations. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Integrated graphics found on Q33, Q35, G31 and G33 chipsets. The available Linux drivers do not support much of this. The original architecture of GMA systems supported only a few functions in hardware, and relied on the host CPU to handle at least some of the graphics pipeline, further decreasing performance.


Chaos Theory or Oblivion need Pixel Shader 2. Apple removed the bit GMA X drivers later, and thus affected Macs were forced back to the bit kernel despite being bit clean in terms of hardware and firmware. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

This series targets the market of low-cost graphics solutions. Retrieved from ” https: Presumably this is due to the lack of a “hardware scheduler” in the GPU.
