The chip giant officially unveils its advanced graphics card and graphics core brand for gaming, let's get acquainted
We are approaching one of the most important events in the history of the video card world when Intel is close to launching advanced graphics cores for gaming. The same graphics cores will compete directly with those currently offered by AMD and NVIDIA. We know that Intel has been planning this moment for many years with products some of which have not yet seen the light of day (Remember Larrabee?).
This is the first time that there has been a third rib in the world of gaming graphics cards in many years, in fact since the early XNUMXs. Here is a video from Intel that explains the process and naming.
This is a multi-year development for which ambitious hardware and gamers in general have been waiting. Now, we are informed that the first generation of video cards of Intel (Alchemist code name) will reach us in the first quarter of next year. More generations will continue in alphabetical branding with Battlemage, Celestial, Druid and so on. The names clearly come from the world of gaming and fantasy.
Intel does not spare mentioning some of the most advanced technologies in the world of graphics today, such as real-time raytracing (which indicates the hardware's ability to do so), or AI technologies for increasing resolution similar to DLSS's. NVIDIA.
At the moment we do not know where the video cards will be manufactured, whether it will be in a format similar to the one we are familiar with with third party companies like Asus or GIGABYTE or how much they will cost. We do not even know with the graphic cores produced in factories Intel Or in third-party silicone plants.
We are sure that soon after the launch we will receive more information about the models and prices. Until then, one can go on and fantasize about a market graphic cards Which becomes significantly competitive with a third rib, and everyone wins.
We would love to hear your opinion on the subject - do you think this is the right step in the world of video cards? Do you see yourself using a video card from Intel in the future?
