Intel Entering Discrete Graphics Card Market in 08

DigiTimes, citing multiple sources in the graphics card industry, says that Intel will enter the discrete graphics card market by 2008.

At this stage all plans are still rather vague, according to the sources, with Intel scheduled to deliver a more complete roadmap and specifications in the fourth quarter of this year. However, according to most of the sources, Intel will aim for the mid-range market in the initial stages with pricing targeted around US$300.

i'd really like to see what kind of performance you get for 300 bucks from intel...

would it be on par with what you could get from nvidia for the same 300 bucks...??
good enough

Most likely this will come with another cheesy marketing scheme like Centrino which really isn't anything in itself, just a package.

I have a fear that Intel will be using its name to sell products to people that trust Intel that do not really know about the equipment they are buying. If Intel tells them they need a video card, they will get one. Intel puts out some really good products, but they often tack on some extra $$$ when you see that magical 'Centrino' badge.

I hope Intel goes the way of the great performance of the C2D and away from the marketing gimmick of Centrino.

Majority of people have likely not heard of eVga, Sapphire or ASUS - maybe not even ATI or nVidia, but they know Intel, and that noteriety will equal sales.

Sweet, that's right around my price range!

Centrino is not a gimmick. It is an industry standard. If you want to have the Centrino name on your notebook, you have to meet Intel's Centrino standards. I think it is an excellent system.

A discrete video card from Intel will be very interesting. Considering Intel has massive experience with processors of all kinds, their GPU should be top of the line.

Didn't Intel attempt discrete graphics before and failed bad?

I thought Intel said they were going for entry level cards.... $300 isn't so entry....

They're probably banking on leveraging their manufacturing skills on their GPU. If so, they'll have the first 45nm GPU on the market so it should consume less power than the others, or they can crank up the voltage to get a pretty good performing chip.
