By now you’ve all read the news about Intel CPU’s with Radeon graphics on the same PCB as well as them snapping up Raja Koduri from AMD.
With this news also comes a big, but subtle announcement from Intel; they are gonna start building dedicated graphics solutions.
In this position, Koduri will expand Intel’s leading position in integrated graphics for the PC market with high-end discrete graphics solutions for a broad range of computing segments.
Can this mean future gaming graphics cards from Intel?
Possibly. But it certainly means Intel is seeing the huge potential of HPC and GPUs important role in that.
Now my little birds at Intel tell me all of this is a result of one competitor Intel sees as a serious threat; Nvidia.
The GV100 compute chip from Nvidia sits alone at the throne in the Compute space, and Nvidia is making some serious money selling it.
Any thoughts on Intels future role in the GPU market?
