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... 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,... Read more...
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...

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... 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,... Read more...
