The competition amongst GPU manufacturers might just level up as Tech giant Microsoft recently announced the release of its very own dedicated graphics cards according to latest reports. We all know when the term dedicated card comes into play, we’re talking about the like of Nvidia and AMD.
New Intel’s Dedicated Graphics Cards To Launch In 2020
It’s no surprise as the tech giant Microsoft gets ready to launch its first GPU card in 2020. Senior vice president of Intel’s Core and Visual Computing division; Raja koduri confirms the company’s plan in a tweet “Intel’s discrete GPU coming in 2020”.
According to Techviral, the idea is even to face Nvidia and AMD in the video card segment for gaming, but Intel is also eyeing other applications that benefit from high-performance GPUs such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, data centres and simulators.
What is striking is the boldness of the plan, so to speak: experts point out that typically the development cycle of a high-performance graphics architecture is at least three years, indicating that Intel is being very optimistic about the proposal to launch the first solution in 2020.
Because of this, one thought that may arise is that the first batch of releases will be made up of medium-performing GPUs or based on Intel’s integrated chip architecture. However, the company said it intends to have gaming products, artificial intelligence and the applications that require advanced graphics solutions.
If that’s going to be the case, Intel’s challenge will be to launch GPUs capable of addressing Nvidia and AMD technologies right from the start. Real Challenge: Hiring Koduri was a smart move, but it can not depreciate the years of experience that rivals have built up in this complex market.
There is another factor that weighs heavily: the fight between Nvidia and AMD. The latter is determined to increase its market share, so much so that it plans to announce by the end of the year the first Radeon Vega 7-nanometer boards. Nvidia is in such a comfortable situation that even made it clear that it is not in a hurry to launch the GeForce GTX 11 line.
