The bar has been raised for chip makers with the introduction of Intel's Ivy Bridge processors. The new Ivy Bridge chips promises faster processing power and improved graphics, thanks to their integrated graphics system. "This is in some ways an evolution and a game changer," said analyst Jack Gold of J. Gold Associates. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Semiconductor Industry and provides equity research on Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) and Qualcomm, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM).

Ivy Bridge Chip has functionally destroyed any reason to buy a basic video card with its integrated graphics system. There is a very small market of people who seek out high-performance graphics cards, mostly comprised of "hardcore" gamers. The improved graphics provided by the Ivy Bridge chips will likely satisfy the needs of the average consumer.

"Ivy Bridge is continuing a downward spiral for graphics card manufacturers that has been going on for a while now," said analyst Jack Gold of J. Gold Associates. "Extreme gamers who want very powerful graphics cards are in a niche market already, and it's shrinking. That doesn't bode well for Nvidia, because their graphics chip market is falling off faster than their mobile chip market. For 95 percent of the folks out there, integrated graphics will be what they want."
