    This can mean also that his car registration expires on June 2020. Like on mine. Guess will see.

    Raja sure knows how to cook and now at Intels kitchen he is baking some exotic Xe GPUs!

    In the US, some states still require annual registration stickers on the upper corners of the plate. He probably purchased the car in May or June of this year, hence June 2020 registration expiration tags.

    Better hope Xe performs well or the 'ThinkXe' license plate won't bring a positive memory.

    Like a tattoo you regret the next day.

    That's literally when his tag expires.... Hopefully these come to market sooner than later though, time to see some competition

    Raja Koduri gets too much credit.
    Im my eyes, he knows he made a huge frack up and ran away with his tail between his legs. Then suddenly after he resigned he was hired instanly by Intel.
    Nothing to see here, move a long.

    He made GCN. Pretty much used from AMD for years. But what you're saying makes sense. If you're hired by another company, you resign from your previous company oof.

    To me, this is not a positive. There has never been a time when GCN, no matter which version, was ever a good thing. It'd be the same as someone saying someone was important because they made Bulldozer.

    Again, this is just my opinion, but i personally have never been enticed to potentially buy an AMD GPU in the entirety of GCNs tenure.

    the last architecture Raja had any hand in was Terascale,

    He left AMD in 2009 to work at Apple, before returning in 2013
    GCN was released in 2012, lead architect was Eric Demers who left Amd for qualcomm in 2012

    Raja kept GCN on life support, it wasn't the architecture he would have wanted.

    Got to agree with this. In fact the 5700XT is the first card from AMD i consider buying since the 5850 ... that was 10 years ago.

    Like others said, but just as a reference shot as shown below. Literally just when ya gotta re up your reg. in that particular state. Doesn't mean it isn't hinting at Intel's release date however

    [​IMG]

    Same here - was thinking of buying one as well due to the low price-point etc but the news regarding a apparent "Wattman" (if I'm saying that right) bug has me holding off

    I'm waiting for more mature drivers too but i think my patience with my 1070 as reached its limit. I had to withdraw my overclock recently cause the card had become unstable after 2 years of being stable. So i'm stuck at ~stock speed now. And since i just bought a 1440p144 monitor man my 1070 is being hammered to death in newer titles.

    I fear any card i would potentially buy now outside of a 2080 Super/Ti will be temporary. So i'm not spending 2070 Super kind of money for 1 year. 5700XT sounds like a more logical purchase while waiting for better and more affordable ray tracing/2k cards to hit the market.

    @MonstroMart

    I agree with you; it's that point where all these options 1650 etc 1660, ti on and on, are like placeholder cards for the hardcore gamer who instead needs something to function. GCN or Pascal - which was like Hell 2/2.5 almost 3 years - 3 years in some cases? Point being the market is so diversified and saturated with weak *crap* and overpriced crap that it leaves people with few solid options. Weak in the sense of the average resolution being 1080P to 2K at least & the average card not holding a steady 60 fps at medium-high/high with those variables.

    Overpriced in the sense of the aforementioned issues I mentioned - you shell out a couple hundred to get something worse than console performance. Pathetic. Myself personally. I have a decent rig. GPU/2080/CPU R7 2700. I'm able to get by and afford building it, maintaining; this doesn't make the price/performance realities of the GPU market lost on me nor the performance of those parts either. I'm a system builder, I'm well aware of what these components put out/and where they draw the line.

    They come too short of the expectations set by what the average gamer can receive with "High-Performance" visuals in a console scenario. That is part of the problem, dynamic resolution set aside. Optimization set aside. There shouldn't be a bar set by under par hardware like the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, by which the PC market - in any sense need follow visually or performance wise. 1080p at 60fps. 4K gaming. These are standards that PCs had long before but they've become streamlined by another market & my point of contention is there's a difference from competition and over-saturating a market to the point that nothing in it gets properly developed and focused on as it should be. That's how I view the current gen of GPUs. A sad state of affairs.

    If you haven't purchased yet; I'd wait for Navi-20..

    I do not doubt Intel's ability to create graphics chips, but all their previous attempts to get into graphics have been half-assed (and this has totally been discussed at length here before). I am just interested to see if it actually gets a real push from them this time. It certainly makes sense for them to have an in-house Compute/A.I. accelerator to pair up with their cpus , and i guess you might as well make gpu's out of the chips you don't/can't use for that.

    As far as Raja goes.....come on man, its Intel. They said "name your price", he named it, and they doubled it. Everyone has a price, and they can afford it. If you are a chip designer, then I would imagine it doesn't get much bigger or better than working for Intel.

    Considering these two points, he returned to AMD to a situation where he had little money to use in R&D. He should have been one of those guys who can pull off miracles with slim resources. He obviously wasn't. It doesn't tell anything about his capabilities to produce results with Intel's Unlimited Budget Works, but it does reveal he's no outside the box thinking genius. Seeing how Intel itself was led by pure businessmen caring for nothing but maximum profit and the engineers were totally ignored for years, who knows if Koduri is the right man there either. Time will tell. If he succeeds at Intel, it's ironically all thanks to AMD that forced Intel to look around for the first time in years (and replace some of their technology hating leadership).

    I can't help it, but the name "Xe" is just the made up pronoun some delusional SJWs use :D
