    Well, let's see them benchmarks as soon as those cards are available.
    Maybe the introduction of Raja and his expertise could break the image of Intel slow iGPU /GPU.
    Rather interesting times, maybe we will have 3 players in the GPU market finally.

    Radja's work at amd was going to have a lot of features aswell, but it somehow never transpired and here we are with cards that never gotten what was promissed in the first place. But i guess when you can sell anyway, it all doesn't matter to anyone but those who lost their money.

    I'm cautiously optimistic.

    This event is probably just a metaphor for sky high gpu prices.

    Intel is gonna make serious money if this works. NVidia and AMD should be crying. Intel is already #1 at total sales. Imagine the addition of dGPUs on these charts!

    IMO, Intel has broken that reputation going all the way back to their original Iris graphics, which was I think released in 2014. People just associate Intel graphics as being crappy because their GPUs were never built with gaming in mind, but they have made genuinely good GPUs for a long while. Xe basically took all of the good attributes of Intel's GPUs (great performance-per-watt, relatively low memory bandwidth, great video transcoding support, multiple 4K monitor support, etc) and then bumped up 3D rasterization performance to levels gamers wanted to see.
    Meanwhile as a Linux user, Intel's driver support has been fantastic for years. Linux hardly ever benefits from application-specific optimizations and the existing Xe drivers for it are pretty polished, so it shouldn't feel like a first-gen product to Linux users. So long as the pricing and availability is good, I'll most likely get one.

    Nvidia has nothing to worry about for a long while. Even if Intel releases something with better performance-per-watt and performance-per-<currency> (even in DXR games), Nvidia will still have not much to worry about.
    AMD could have something to worry about; RNDA2 will most likely be inferior but their next-gen stuff might only be par.

    Until they actually release their gpu nvidia and amd will already start teasing the next generation gpus.

    I'm hopeful that the introduction of a new player on the gaming GPU market will push the prices down. More competition, more better.

    I have to say that I think AMD has progressed beyond anything Raja might have conceived with them. No slight on Raja, but it takes far more than one person to design and manufacture a decent 3D GPU. Intel needs to do far less "teasing" and start introducing competitive products into the marketplace. I wouldn't advise people to hold their breaths waiting on the Intel discrete GPU front. Intel very badly needs to get its CPU house in order, first, imo.

    Teasing is the right thing todo while chip production is low and GPU prices are out of order, would be a rather bad strategy to introduce cards to the marketplace while they can't deliver.

    Intel needs to get it's CPU house in order?

    I wouldnt get your hopes up, Raja has a long history of overhyping his work big time. he promised to get Radeon to take out Nvidia for years and years, never delivered

    we need this product to be good, at least on the low and middle segment with a reasonable price, because we desperately need that.
