The competition for GeForce &Radeon A time frame is on the way to launch - but we all need to be very patient
Intel has provided us with some unexpected surprises in the past year: four cores in low-power mobile processors, six cores in both portable and stationary intermediate processors, combining different architectures and production technologies under the same generation and even incorporating AMD graphics cores into its products - but the biggest surprise of all was Almost certainly, the decision to return to a third attempt in the last two decades to develop and create its own dedicated graphic accelerators, with the clear intention of fighting AMD's long-standingNVIDIA Both in the gaming world and in the professional and professional world.
To succeed in this mission, the world's second-largest chip maker has hired some of the world's largest semiconductor names - most notably Raja Kodori, who was responsible for allRadeon The big competitor and decided to "defect" to lead the fresh graphic processing division she created Intel.
Intel's aggressive progress in the field has spawned several rumors that the company may introduce initial graphics processing cards Early next year, And now the company seems to have decided to chill the hopes a bit and cut some of the disinformation - with the announcement that the first Kodori-led division cards will arrive only during 2020 year. This information may disappoint those who were convinced that we will see first products in stores within a year, but at least gives us a first real update on this product category And also eliminates unnecessary illusions and fantasies To all those who may have already begun planning their next upgrade.
Intel itself may have silicon chips and even prototype hardware working in labs early next year - but the commercial for users seems likely to occur only at the beginning of the next decade, for better or worse.
