Graphics processors have been seriously undervalued by general consumers, which catalyzed Advanced Micro Devices and Intel Corp. to create processors with built-in graphics engines. But add-on graphics cards will continue to exist, says Jon Peddie, the principal of Jon Peddie Research.

"The high end, enthusiast and workstation, and probably the upper half of the performance segment will have performance and power requirements such that they cannot be integrated into a CPU," said Jon Peddie in an interview for an X-bit labs article.

Premium graphics cards that cost from $200 and upwards will still deliver proper benefit for their price, according to Mr. Peddie.

Demands for graphics cards performance have been increasing because of amplification of requirements of video games. However, in the coming years, it is believed, resolutions of monitors will increase and so do the demands towards performance of graphics sub-system.

Companies like Nvidia and ATI, graphics business unit of Advanced Micro Devices, are working hard to ensure that discrete graphics cards provide additional level of performance for consumer-oriented applications. With integrated graphics core almost any microprocessor has benefits of GPGPU computing and the main task of appropriate companies is to create graphics chips with performance well-beyond expectations.
