[G3D] Intel Buys Indian Startup To Gain Discrete GPU Tech Expertise

source
Quote:
A spokesperson for Intel tells the newspaper that his company has taken over the engineering resources of Ineda Systems, giving Intel an "experienced team in the field of socs to help build a business unit for loose GPUs."
...
Gude, who founded Ineda after he quit as AMD India managing director, remained an investor in Ineda though he went on to set up Invecas in 2014 and regained 100% stake in Ineda in Nov 2018. Intel, which has a few hundred engineers engaged in software development in Hyderabad, is also planning to set up a global technology centre in Hyderabad housing around 1,500 engineers initially, which may be ramped up to 5,000 people
Apparently intel are very serious about their GPU department.
Though considering this, apparently they don't have enough of the expertise to do so. This could mean that we won't see a GPU this year at least, but with so much manpower apparently going for it, I expect something big next year.

If I'm understanding this correctly, this was a move by intel to help bolster the development of drivers for their gpu's rather than actual chip R&D, so it shouldn't have any effect on the slated 2019 GPU launch, but make it a lot smoother.

I don't expect a high performance Intel GPU anywhere sooner than 2020 at best. Not unless they steal chunk of the hardware design by the way they bought engineers over from AMD and elsewhere. 2021-2022 is more realistic. 3 years to develop and maybe even 1 year just to get and setup all the people they will need.

It's a shame that AMD/RTG has thrown in the towel in a way and keeps making maybe profitable or barely profitable products that do not help their brand image among customers. Good tech, poor execution, too late, not available, etc.

it doesn't say that at all in the article.
It actually refers to a SoC, not drivers.

Their website shows them using a Qualcomm V2X processor to handle the I/O of the sensors for their self driving car tech.

How a gpu handles I/O would fall more on the side of the firmware and drivers, correct?

edit:

This is the part that made me think drivers initially

I read that as intel ramping up the count of engineers in software development to 5,000, but in hindsight that is probably wrong.

Intel has been "very serious about their GPU department" for over a decade now but has still failed to produce any kind of competitive product for the GPU market and further more they are still way behind amd and nvidia as far as reliable drivers go.

Its good that they are trying to close the gap but I would not except them produce anything exciting any time soon.

Larrabee was terminated in 2010 so I wouldn't say that's true. Having trouble coming up with any other discrete GPUs they've made in that time frame.

yep, people don't give the market the credit its due in regards to complexity. Intel has the upper hand, the money, the fabs, etc etc, but they DON'T HAVE THE EXPERIENCE, or decades of R&D into the topic like AMD & NV.

anyone expecting to migrate to the first intel GPU (Whenever it actually comes out, i've not seen an official slating for it) is in for a disappointment, unless they're just uber utter intel soyboys, or upgrading from a years old low tier GPU

RTG didn't give up, they are capturing market share in the areas that are profitable. Which are datacenters and mid range cards. High end cards aren't profitable and the R&D cost to stay competitive is way too high. RTG are focusing on Linux open source development and they're doing a fantastic job.
