The first reviews for Intel's (INTC) just-released Ivy Bridge CPUs praise their graphics performance (previous) and power draw, while noting gains relative to Sandy Bridge for non-graphics intensive apps are relatively modest. AnandTech sees Ivy Bridge putting the market for sub-$80 graphics cards featuring AMD and NVDA GPUs at risk, while Tom's Hardware sees its thermal improvements as evidence of Intel's focus on smaller form factors such as ultrabooks and iMacs.
