    Default Intel's New SNB Acceleration Architecture Still Maturing

    Phoronix: Intel's New SNB Acceleration Architecture Still Maturing

    In early June there was the introduction of the Sandy Bridge New Acceleration Architecture by Intel that dramatically excelled the 2D and 3D performance of their processor graphics on their Sandy Bridge hardware along with previous-generation IGPs. Here is a look at how the SNA acceleration architecture is performing today.

    I'd like to see some benchmarks on older hardware like the i945GM.

    I had massive improvements in FPS with SNA enabled.

    I would also love some benchmarks on a 945GM, since it's what my netbook has

    You will have much greater performance boost patching xorg...
    ## VGA ##
    AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
    Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

    SNA or SNB? The title and name of the page disagree....

    SNB is Sandy Bridge.

    So SNB Acceleration Architecture

    I'm waiting for Ivy Bridge-based Lenovo ThinkPads. Then I'm going to buy one, in the X series, and hope the heck they have USB 3.0 at least.

    Values of quantities should be written as a number followed by a space, separated. This is an international norm.

    5.3.3 Formatting the value of a quantity

    The numerical value always precedes the unit, and a space is always used to separate
    the unit from the number. Thus the value of the quantity is the product of the number
    and the unit, the space being regarded as a multiplication sign (just as a space
    between units implies multiplication). The only exceptions to this rule are for the unit
    symbols for degree, minute, and second for plane angle, , ′, and ′′, respectively, for
    which no space is left between the numerical value and the unit symbol.

    Section 7.2 Space between numerical value and unit symbol

    In the expression for the value of a quantity, the unit symbol is placed after the numerical value and a space is left between the numerical value and the unit symbol.
    e.g.: 2.5 GHz, 4096 MB, etc.
