Intel's First (Modern) Discrete GPU Set For 2020

Intel's First (Modern) Discrete GPU Set For 2020

With Intel creating its own line of GPUs, gamers should have more choice when it comes to buying the best graphics card for their rigs.

The last time we heard about Intel's dedicated GPU is that it would be unveiled at CES 2019, but according to new information from Intel itself, their dedicated GPU won't be arriving until 2020.

"As we've previously stated, our intent is to expand our leading position in integrated graphics for the PC market with high-end discrete graphics solutions for a broad range of computing segments".

I've got to say, a 2020 target seems massively ambitious, especially with Raja Koduri, chief architect of its Core and Visual Computing Group, only starting out in his role around six months ago. A new report published by analyst Ryan Shrout, often seen over at PCPer, reveals that Intel's first discrete graphics chips will become available in 2020.

Defending champions Germany arrive in Russia for World Cup
The "United Bid" calls for the host 60 matches, including all games from the quarter-finals through to the final. It will be the first World Cup since the 2002 edition in South Korea and Japan in which multiple countries will host.

The bad weather isn't a huge surprise after Saturday's Xfinity race was shortened by rain. “Its frustrating, ” Jones said. For Keselowski, earning his first win of the season on home turf would be a ideal way to wipe away the disappointment.

Singapore Agreement Will End Cold War, Says South Korean President Moon Jae
South Korea's Presidential Blue House said it needed "to find out the precise meaning or intentions" of Mr Trump's statement . A degree of confusion arose after Vice President Mike Pence spoke to senators at a lunch closed to media coverage.

Koduri now serves as Intel's chief architect and SVP of the newly created Core and Visual Computing Group.

Intel's executive vice president of the data-center group, Navin Shenoy, said Intel will include GPUs for the data center aimed at AI and machine-learning applications, as well as client systems for gaming and professional development. Intel may still just about hold sway in the CPU market, but they're now a long way behind in the graphics game.

This new GPU would be the first GPU to come out of Intel's revitalized GPU efforts, which kicked into high gear at the end of 2017 with the hiring of former AMD and Apple GPU boss Raja Koduri. Intel of course is in the midst of watching sometimes-ally and sometimes-rival NVIDIA grow at a almost absurd pace thanks to the machine learning boom, so Intel's third shot at dGPUs is ultimately an effort to establish themselves in a market for accelerators that is no longer niche but is increasingly splitting off customers who previously would have relied entirely on Intel CPUs.

The processing power Nvidia's GPUs are capable of has made them a useful tool for those dealing in ether, but the company's CEO would prefer the GPUs be kept for use in areas such as gaming or high-performance computing.
