Half-Life Devs Say New Processor Will Bring "Console-Like Experience" To PCs

Intel showed off today a new processor called "Sandy Bridge". Awful name, but it's a promising piece of technology. So promising, in fact, that the boss of Valve was on-hand to pat it on the proverbial back.

With the studio developing Portal 2 with the "Sandy Bridge" specifically in mind, Valve boss Gabe Newell took to the stage at the Consumer Electronic Show and said "It's a real game changer for us. This allows for a console like experience on the PC."

What he likely means is that the chip, which is so powerful it combines a regular processor's functionality with that of a graphics card, goes a long way towards doing away with PC hardware specifications. If you've got a Sandy Bridge (God I hope the product's final name is less creepy to type), it's hoped that you'll be able to drop in a game and play without having to worry about your CPU, GPU, etc, just like console owners can do.

Emphasis on hoped.

Vad tror ni? Är sandy bridge sååå bra?

Jag tycker att konsolerna bara blivit mer datoraktiga, fast utan samma prestanda som i en ordentlig dator.
Föredrar stort att spela på PC.

vill inte att PC bara ska bli en till konsol.

Jag tor att Gabe Newell menar att utvecklarna får en konsollik uplevelse, man behöver inte buggtesta för myriader av uppsättningar om ens spel egentligen kan köras på integrerad grafik. Tror jag. Antagligen mest relevant för mindre utvecklare.
