Unlike the current desktop and netbook Atom CPUs, Intel's next generation of “full fat” Atom processors won't be using Intel graphics, instead the company has extended its licensing with PowerVR and we'll be seeing an SGX545 graphics core in these new Atom processors. This is actually quite a significant step for Intel as it indicates a move away from its own graphics IP for the entire Atom series of CPUs. The good news is that this should at least in theory significantly boost the performance of the GPU in the upcoming Atom processors, although PowerVR's SGX545 isn't exactly a cutting edge GPU design these days. It is in fact similar to what Intel calls the GMA 500 or GMA 600, both of which are based on PowerVR's SGX535 graphics core. New features include DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.0 support (the GPU is capable of OpenGL 3.2, but Intel seems to only go as far as 3.0) as we...
