Intel's Grantsdale: no ordinary rabbit

According to this report at DigiTimes, the onboard graphics core of Intel's 915G chipset appears to be more than nibbling bums at ATI and NVIDIA. ATI has scaled back wafer starts for entry-level RV280 chipsets by an unspecified amount, and NVIDIA has reduced starts on NV34 to as little as one third of previous levels. Sources told DigiTimes to credit the slowdown to softer demand for discrete low-end graphics cards due to decisions by bigger OEMs like HP and Dell to use the GMA video built into the 915G chipset.

Intel, whose integrated graphics conveniently skirt the issue of suddenly-disappearing AGP slots and the dearth of PCI Express video cards, already ships more graphics chips than any other manufacturer.
