He wraps up by stating being a leader is "what Intel's been about, and that's what we expect to do with discrete graphics".

I can't see Intel releasing gaming ready drivers as often as AMD/Nvidia.

Intel Core i9 9900K HT 5GHz
GIGABYTE Z390 Ultra
AMD ASUS STRIX OC VEGA 64
G-Skill Trident 2x8GB DDR4 4000MHz
Samsung EVO NVM.e 250GB
SeaSonic 1250W Gold
Corsair 900D + Custom Loop.

I suppose it is no surprise that a paper pusher who sees nothing but employee counts and dollar signs thinks success is simply a matter is throwing money and people at something.

It is. You just have to have the right people and enough money.

Building hype...seems to be a recruiting ad.
Question is why did their previous attempt at discrete graphics did not hit the market?
They had the resources back then too. What are they doing differently now?
More transparency would be great. It's all just big talk right now.
Intel can manufacture their own chips, so I guess that would be the advantage vs AMD and Nvidia.

Technically they have had graphics for a LONG time. Currently with iGPUs and previously with graphics in the chipset before we did away with the northbridge. Most attempts at graphics have been successful for In tel, it was just the big Larabee thing that they got all wrong. Right now their iGPUs may lack power compared to any discreet graphics, but so do all iGPUs. They do have some very nice tech with things like QuickSync that has people using their graphics quite a bit. This is just finally taking the plunge into a serious graphics chip. The reason behind it is that datacenter marketshare is being ruled by graphics companies, mostly Nvidia. Intel wants to muscle in on that so they can sell both the CPUs, and GPUs to the customers for double profit taking. As long as they follow the same general principles as their iGPUs they will be fine, they just cant try to reinvent the wheel here like they did with Larabee. And with Raja leading the charge we know they will come out with something decent.

3DFX had that same "advantage" and it didn't turn out that well for them. Saving a couple bucks on manufacturing costs doesn't account for a whole lot on a company that size, AIB partners are good things.

Intel (and IBM and Sony with Cell processor) thought GPU could be replaced with many core CPU solution, but they just couldn't reach the performance level of traditional GPUs.

The only way Intel can make it is if they steal talent from Nvidia. Just getting from AMD is not enough.

nVidia isn't as brilliant as their marketing department makes it seem.

AMD is more hampered by their finances than talent.
