Intel’s CPU division may be having a hard time keeping up with AMD’s new Ryzen chips, but that doesn’t seem to have stopped the company from going all-in into the discrete graphics market. There’s scarce information on Intel’s upcoming GPU architecture, but the fog is gradually clearing and the company is revealing
The latest data comes from a recruitment drive video shared on Twitter meant for Intel’s new Visual Technologies Team lead by former Radeon boss Raja Koduri, where he and the newly appointed CEO Bob Swan talk about what to expect from their upcoming graphics processors.
Koduri starts off by saying that Intel is starting the project from the ground up, without any restrictions or limitations that may come along with the existing integrated graphics architectures. He goes on to say the following:
Bob Swan continues by adding:
It’s too early to predict what exactly Intel has in store for the discrete graphics space but looking at kind of resources the company has as well as their own wafer fabbing factories, it can be said with certainty that NVIDIA and AMD will soon have a second rival in a rather uncongested GPU market.
From the look of things, Intel may or may not start with gaming GPUs and then slowly encroach the AI and neural networks’ segments that are largely controlled by NVIDIA. It may also be the other way around, with gamers getting the second or third priority. Regardless, we’ll learn more about Intel’s discrete graphics plans in time and closer to the global reveal (most likely 2020).
