Intel is going to be entering the market to compete against AMD and NVidia.

Hopefully they won't hype it to the moon and come out with a below average card this time around. :sing:

Wonder if they'll still use some of the PowerVR patents they've held before for the GMA series. Intel HD does have some PowerVRisms still (16-bit post dither makes it good for stubborn 16bpp 3d games)

I'll believe it when I see it.

Also - using TSMC as manufacturer? Now there's a new monopoly being erected...

I've known about this for a while, and honestly with what I've been able to get out of a NUC6i7kyk (which uses Iris Pro 580 as it's iGPU) it'd be interesting to see a discrete card from Intel.

now if only their software department wasn't a absolute disaster!!!

"Alchemist", "Battlemage", "Celestial", "Druid"... Those sure are some codenames.

Shogo and Blood 2 look really nice on my NUC, well about as nice as LitehTech 1.x allows anyways.

Yeap.

Serious doubt Intel will succeed - didn't they already try this some 20yrs ago and shelved their idea? I don't doubt they're capable of making competent hardware, but drivers, however, after the disaster their integrated drivers had the tendency to be? "I'll believe it when I see it."
