Like most people in tech, we have oh-so-many questions about Intel's discrete GPU efforts, and if things stay on track, we will get some official answers sometime this year. Until then, we're left to nibble on little nuggets Intel shares here and there, and scour the rumor mill for scraps of information. As it... Read more...
Intel has sent out press invites for its "Intel Architectural Day", which will take place on Tuesday, December 11th.

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... 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... 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...

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... 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 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... Read more...
