  • Intel is preparing to launch its new range of dedicated graphics cards - competing with Nvidia and AMD - to great fanfare.

    Well, some fanfare.

    A little fanfare.  (The Verge)

    Intel's high-end A750 card will compete against Nvidia's definitely not high-end RTX 3060, at least on some games.  Five games, to be precise.  Intel isn't talking about other games.  You've got five games, what do you want?

    Had this launched a year ago, even with the performance caveats, Intel would have sold as many as they could make.  But it's launching into a market where cards are sitting on shelves waiting to be bought at or a little below MSRP, so it's probably doomed.

    Intel also pulled its rather nice NUC laptop range that came with Nvidia 3060 and 3070 graphics options and replaced it with models with its own graphics chips, meaning they won't be selling any laptops either.

1 Intel: Get congress to sign over billions of dollars to "build new fabs".
Take said billions and use it to run ads during major spoting events, and bribe companies like Dell to be Intel-only shops.
Also come out with obviously inept crap and pay companies to use your crap.
In a couple of years demand another few billion to "build more fabs".

2 If Intel is willing to stick with it for at least 5 years they can probably get a competitive graphics card.  We shall see how that turns out.  They haven't made a good GPU since the 82786.

3 Yeah, but can it drive a Hercules monitor?  Asking for a friend.

4 Hrm, when I search for "herc" on that 82786 article I get nothing.  You are getting the suspicious side-eye meme right now, if I had any idea how to manage that.

If it can't drive a Herc, it was made by a jerk.

5 Yeah, it could drive a Hercules monitor, but it was designed mainly for higher-end displays - it supported 4MB of VRAM at a time when 4MB of VRAM was a lot.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
