ATI POWERXPRESS DRIVER

Available on mainstream mobile IGP chipsets AMD MG and M , the PowerXpress technology allows seamless switching from integrated graphics IGP to discrete graphics on notebooks when the notebook is connected to the AC power supply for better 3D rendering capabilities, and vice versa when disconnected from the power supply to increase battery life. You cannot put a socket am2 processor on a socket am3 motherboard The process does not require a system reboot as in the past and some current notebook implementations. On computers without an additional graphics processor, this hardware will process monitor output, video decompression and 3-D rendering on your PC. Aaron Parson has been writing about electronics, software and games since , contributing to several technology websites and working with NewsHour Productions. The cards produce more heat, use more power, drain the battery faster and raise the price of the laptop. When buying laptops, you’ll need to consider what type of graphics processor you want.

The new G chipset has solved this issue however and supports DirectX By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. I’d love to finally see this feature brought to my desktop.

When will PowerXPress be implemented in desktop chipsets? Does anybody know when the PowerXPress feature will come into chipsets that are non-Notebook-ones like the MG which I found in wikipedia? Archived from the original on July 27, Integrated graphics also rely on the system’s RAM for memory, taking away some of that memory from other uses such as running programs.

This article needs to be updated. You cannot put a socket am2 processor on a socket am3 motherboard To alleviate the heat and power usage of running a discrete graphics processor all the time, AMD uses the ATI PowerXpress feature to switch back to the integrated tai processor when you run the laptop on battery.

Available on mainstream mobile IGP chipsets AMD MG and Mthe PowerXpress technology allows seamless switching from integrated graphics IGP to discrete graphics on notebooks when the notebook is connected to the AC power supply for better 3D rendering capabilities, and vice versa when disconnected from the power supply to increase battery life.

Llano Hits the Poewrxpress – Page 7″. Therefore, it is different from Hybrid CrossFireX. Originally posted by Saist View Post. Oh, and of course, it should work with Linux kernel based OS. The integrated graphics processor and the discrete graphics processor work in parallel to drive multiple displays.

On computers without an additional graphics processor, this hardware will process monitor output, video decompression and 3-D rendering on your PC. Would be nice if it could be switched off totally since I only need it for gaming.

Discrete graphics do have some downsides as well: And a 3rd one: Current Linux support of this feature may be complete since Catalyst Intel Graphics Intel’s graphics processors come integrated into the computer’s CPU, or on older models on the computer’s motherboard. This page was last edited on 7 Decemberat With this additional processor and memory, the laptop can process video data and render 3-D models far faster than with integrated graphics.

Llano Rocks Entry-Level Desktops”. As far as I understood though there is support for hybrid graphics in the 7xx chipsets – but there is no implementation for dynamic switching between IGP, discrete card like a Radeon HD e.
