The magazine ZDnet reports that in the instructions for manufacturers of components for Windows 7, Microsoft does not encourage the development of hybrid graphics technology.

The hybrid systems have a graphics controller embedded on the motherboard and a dedicated graphics card for software requiring better performance. For a laptop, the life of the battery will be slightly improved with the use of graphics controller. To the great displeasure of ATI, Nvidia and Microsoft OEM stated:"Windows 7 does not offer native support for hybrid graphics systems. We strongly encourage manufacturers not to develop such systems could be unstable and unpleasant for the user."

At the time of writing, the record in question is no longer available on the official site and it is being edited. Microsoft would be in the process of amending this section?
