    Considering how underwhelming Intel's hardware launches have been for what, the past decade? Combined with the fact the guy heading up their dGPU devision is the same one responsible for Vega (I presume?), I ain't gonna bother getting excited...

    I don't think they will even attempt to go after 2080 or 2080Ti beaters with their first gen of hardware. Intel will be more interested in where the money is, The $200-$400 GPU market.

    I honestly don't think they'll release a consumer card first. They might just go for productivity cards and have a derivative consumer card in the second or third generation. Kinda like AMD did it with the Instinct MI50 and the Radeon VII.

    It's possible, but there's something to be said for the fact that the "Odyssey" is part of the Intel Gaming site and is to be formally announced at GDC - both at odds with a planned workstation card launch.

    I don't think Raja had anything to do with Vega? unless they "borrowed" another employee and I missed it? I know they've been doing that lately.. But yeah, Vega was Fury and Raja did Polaris. Which, I *think* are different technologies.

    If they hired the guy who did Vega they will go bust pretty quickly IMO. Vega is like this.

    AMD have been on GCN arch since the 7970 - yeah, it's been heavily revised through the generations, but until Navi comes along, there hasn't been a substantial leap in the way AMD cards work since 2012 (HMB memory is probably the single biggest differentiation).

    Cue the announcement that 'Odyssey' is a Battle Royale game and much trollol-ing from Intel.

    Even Navi isn't that substantial of a leap. Navi is still GCN based, but apparently they have a way to get around the 4-something-thousand CU limit that has been stopping them from just adding more power through more compute units. Navi will see raised CU's, but will still be based on GCN. The next tech beyond that should be a brand new arch.

    Article is incorrect. Intel first entered the discrete graphics market with the i740 in 1998. I remember reading the original review in Maximum PC way back in the day when people bought magazines. So assuming this comes to fruition, this will be the second discrete graphics card released by Intel. Just sayin'.

    ...how on Earth did I forget about the i740? I'll update the piece - thanks for the trip down memory lane!

    Be fair to yourself, i'm surprised you could remember your own name after the Unigine test fest.

    An Intel GPU though. Good for the market, could be great, will probably be expensive.

    Mind you nvidia may have made it so Intel get into a market where they are better value than a competitor.

    Hah! Still got more of that ahead - nine machines to go, although as two of the machines (an Intel Core i3 NUC and an Intel Core i5 NUC) are identical bar the CPU in 'em I may just review one and mention the other as a cheaper/more expensive option in the body text (depending on which I decide to cover).
