These claims were today set in stone when Vice President Of Core And Visual Computing Technologies team at Intel, Ari Rausch confirmed Petersen’s addition to their growing graphics team. The Intel Graphics handle on Twitter made the same announcement.

This proves that Intel means business when it comes to their upcoming discrete graphics processors. This marks the recruitment of a key player from both NVIDIA and AMD into Intel’s Core And Visual Computing Technologies team.

Intel revealed a few shroud designs for its upcoming graphics cards at GDC a while back. Although, these are just the skins, it’s good to know team blue is on the right track.
