Intel has sent out press invites for its "Intel Architectural Day", which will take place on Tuesday, December 11th. The chip company will hold two primary sessions during the day: one which will pertain to “Intel Architecture Strategy” and a second that will delve into "Advanced Client and Data Centric Architectures and Technologies". The invite goes on to state, “Join us as we take a look at how Intel's innovation will bring breakthroughs in new products and experiences.” It should come as no surprise that most of us would be quick to assume that Intel will discuss its upcoming dedicated graphics cards at the event. In fact, when news of the conference began... Read more...
On this episode of HotHardware’s Two And Half Geeks, Marco, Chris and Dave chat about  our upcoming Intel GPU news, beastly 18-core Intel Core i9 CPUs, lots of AMD news including our Radeon RX 590 review, Lenovo's swank and powerful ThinkPad X1 Extreme, HP's Always-Connected Envy X2 convertible, and a whole lot more!

Intel has some exciting products in the pipeline, including its first modern discrete GPU tentatively scheduled to release in 2020, and 10-nanometer processors (Cannon Lake) that will (finally) ship in volume at the end of 2019 (barring another delay, of course). These and other technologies might be discussed at an upcoming technology event. Details are sparse, but according to Anandtech, Intel is inviting "only a few press" to an Architecture Summit being held in a few weeks. It's not known exactly what Intel plans to talk about at the event, only that it will be "an exclusively small affair" with Intel discussing some of its future plans. It will also consist of "detailed presentations." Hopefully... Read more...
We've been hearing about Intel's (re)entry into the discrete enthusiast graphics realm for quite some time, and the company even confirmed its efforts when it snatched GPU guru Raja Koduri from AMD. At the time, Intel stated, "In this position, Koduri will expand Intel’s leading position in integrated graphics for the PC market with high-end discrete graphics solutions for a broad range of computing segments." Today, however, the company has shown off a nice teaser video of its upcoming discrete graphics solution. While Intel doesn't really present much in the way of new information (it spends most of the video talking about advances that it has made in the graphics arena), we... Read more...
We have known for quite some time that Intel is working on its own discrete GPU. Back in November, the company announced the hiring of Raja Koduri -- formerly of AMD -- and stated that he would "expand Intel’s leading position in integrated graphics for the PC market with high-end discrete graphics solutions for a broad range of computing segments." Intel today provided one additional tidbit of information regarding its discrete “Arctic Sound” GPU aspirations: a launch date. According to a rather brief tweet, Intel says that its GPU family will be available in 2020, after which it links to that old article from 2017 announcing Koduri's arrival. Intel's first discrete...

Exciting things are taking place at Intel in the graphics space. It was revealed earlier this year that Intel had started working on a discrete GPU, reportedly called Arctic Sound, and rumor has it this will be a gaming GPU. There is plenty of evidence to suggest that is the case, the latest of which is a timely integrated graphics driver release coinciding with the April 2018 Update for Windows 10. On the surface, that might not seem like a big deal—AMD and NVIDIA release timely driver updates all the time for new games that come out and major Windows 10 updates alike. But that is also the point. Intel has not done the same thing, at least to the extent that AMD and NVIDIA traditionally... Read more...
When AMD's former graphics boss Raja Koduri landed at Intel after taking a much-earned hiatus from the company (he led AMD's Radeon Technologies Group and spearheaded the launch of Vega), it was seen as a major coup for the Santa Clara chip outfit, one that seemed to signal that Intel might be targeting to compete in the discrete graphics card market. While nothing has been announced in that regard, some analysts are claiming that there will indeed be a gaming variant of Intel's upcoming discrete 'Arctic Sound' GPU. Motley Fool's Ashraf Eassa says Intel originally planned to build Arctic Sound graphics chips mainly for video streaming chores and data center activities. However, he claims... Read more...
The big news with Intel (outside of the Meltdown and Spectre madness) is that it partnered with rival AMD to build custom modules combining its Core processors with AMD's Vega graphics. That's an exciting development, though it's not the end game for Intel's graphics play. Looking down the line, Intel will switch to using its own custom discrete graphics solutions, dubbed Arctic Sound and Juper Sound, according to Motley Fool's Ashraf Eassa. Intel has not made any official announcement in regards to its own discrete custom graphics, of course, but even if Eassa is misinformed on the codenames, it is at least plausible that Intel is going in that direction. After all, Intel managed to pry graphics... Read more...
