    It does not look good when they write "We'll deliver" and then delete that tweet.

    Intel is gonna run out of letters soon.

    Intel broke the proverbial mirror and their bad luck and missteps are showing up.

    This reality is turning into one really Big Joke.

    This thing will either be one of the greatest thing to happen to PC gaming in like 15 years or it will go down in history as one of the biggest flop ever.

    I think everyone wants this to be good maybe extra competition will spice up the GPU space we need prices to come way down.

    Really hope that "Xe" will be something good enough to compete with nvidia and AMD

    The insecurity of Intel tweets is incredible.

    They will release a microcode patch to fix it!

    It is called marketing at most bizarre level.

    Basically, person tweets something that's going to catch a lot of flame. And then takes it back as (s)he realizes it was stupid. But it is out already and someone made screenshot. (As all in cancel culture do all the time, to have ammo later on anyone.)

    And fact that tweet is removed sparks even bigger internet drama than message of original tweet...

    ... here intel replicated it for extra marketing. That's why I consider it insane when large corporation tries to use such mechanism to gain coverage.

    50% slower than 3080ti/big navi but 150% faster for raytracing. :D Praise the blue cheese of gpu's innovation!

    Last time Intel has the dGPU tested (last year or so) it wasn't faster than the GTX750Ti. The new Ryzen APUs are faster. :p

    My own expectations are that it will come in with a whimper--people should not make up all kinds of wild notions about this. Reminds me of Larrabee, only Xe hasn't been hyped by know-it-all-pundits-who-really-don't-know-much-of-anything like Larrabee was...! "The real time ray-tracing CPU that wasn't"--that was Larrabee. I actually felt sorry for Intel with the Larrabee cancellation--Intel never said it was a "real-time ray-tracing CPU"--ever. In fact, at Intel demonstrations that were simulations run on other CPUs to illustrate some things Larrabee would be shooting for, Intel would specifically state that "Larrabee is not a ray-tracing CPU" but it fell on deaf ears--very deaf ears. Anyway, Intel wisely cancelled the Larrabee project before the first CPU was ever shipped. Nothing could live up to the insane expectations the pundits had driven themselves mad talking about. It was really quite an illustration as to how Internet rumors echo back and forth between hardware sites and the various pundit sites feed off the hype from each other and greatly amplify their errors. This isn't happening anymore that I can see, so maybe they learned something from Larrabee. 100-1 it won't be a discrete high-end GPU that will provide competition for nVidia or AMD. I think HH is right on the money, here.

    According to this:
    It's gonna be a (very) low-end GPU. But I'm not sure why Intel leaves people in the dark. Because some thinks it's gonna be a decent GPU, and when it turns out it's just a shitty mobile GPU, everybody will laugh.

    the gpu GN talks about there is not the Xe that intel is getting ready to release.
