    Heh Intel is barely competing with AMD as far as IGPUs are concerned they are barely a blip on the radar anymore. So I don't think them releasing their own discrete GPU will change things. The only hardware thing that Intel good at is CPUs and yeah Intel's marketshare has dropped by quite a bit thanks to AMD's Zen CPUs.

    That should be new uArch and Raja's mind in it. If that's worth anything, I can't say, but to some, he is GPU God, to others just someone who screwed badly and run or was made to leave.

    I for one hope they are successful and possibly push the market to innovate. The more players out there, the better it will be for consumers. Having to choose from one or two options is getting old. Pretty stagnant lately on all PC fronts.

    Good good. The CPU market has shown very clearly this year that no one king of the hill must rule supreme, or technology comes to a near standstill. Same is true for GPUs. Nvidia currently is king of the hill, prices were already at an all time high before mining became a big thing, and new cards have always been more of the same thing, just a bit faster. There has been no new technology for years now.

    It's not about resources alone, it already tried and failed doing all kind of none-CPU chips. from consoles SOCs, low power smartphones chips and even dedicated GPUs.
    all failed, you know why? because Intel is a one trick pony. maybe they can literally "buy" a GPU design with enough money but you need the right mindset for that. Nvidia is not even trying right now
    Nvidia is miles ahead, GPUs are quite different from CPUs and require very different talent.

    Intel huge lead was due to the fabrication powerhouse it has built, their fabs are their own,they focused only on their CPUs(whereas TSMC has tons of customers with very different requirements) and were ahead in terms of process node.
    but this is no longer the case, 10nm seems to be in a horrible shape while other fabs are already sampling 7nm(which should be about equivalent).
    they are talking about 2020! the project could die before that(though Intel is really interested in GPUs now due to rising markets like AI, Cryptocurrency, Cloud GPU)

    the only company that could fight Nvidia fair and square is AMD. their CPU design was a mess before Ryzen. Now they are looked as a real competition, AMD has already lots of experience with GPUs and has decent designs, with 7nm and a good design they could fight with Nvidia or at least prevent price gouging

    This is all speculation and things that havent happened yet. You cant talk about Cryptocurrency because the market is unstable this can die tomorrow and no one would care except the people involved. To be honest AMD hasnt challenged Intel in the GPU market for a long time. Oh i forgot AMD finally has a chip in 2018 that challenged Haswell LOL

    Unless they've changed their mind, the first dedicated GPU will be based off of current iGPU architectures, so don't really think Raja will have anything to do with it in regards to revolutionizing their architecture.

    You say you're not a fanboy, and yet you make comments like this. You make it easy to see through your own lies.

    Crypto is just an example of computing going the direction of GPUs. same with AI, machine learning, gaming, Cloud services, Streaming and so on.
    I have no idea what this means:
