Intel is just buying out the old press. Much cheaper to pay them 100k a year than bribe them.

This is good news actually. Intel hiring PC enthusiasts show that they still care about this niche hobby. They’ve focused so much on datacenter recently that they somewhat lost touch with the PC crowd.

A good career move. Mothballing an original author site with a 20+ year legacy instead of handing it over to a faceless micro monetization conglomerate makes perfect sense. Then it makes further sense because just like Anand who left for Apple, Scott who left TR for AMD and Ryan who left PCPer for Intel, it just further shows that the traditional on-line tech press didn't successfully transition to the video first, written article second model, like Gamers Nexus does and thus a well paying career path for a senior member in an overcrowded space is only to be found by moving to higher grounds.

With Keller and Koduri over at Intel, it's certainly an exciting place to work at, with them entering the GPU market next year and with the inevitable CPU arch revamp that is due in the next few years. About the HardForum though, it will raise a few doubts to have an Intel employee being an admin though. Kyle always did what he wanted, but he will be a lot more scrutinized from now on, as there are other interests at play. It will be a privileged place to get first hand info about Intel though, so it has a good chance to survive without the anchor site active - and what better way to do his new job than keep his current community?

Which brings me to the last point, which is the importance of having an independent discussion forum; independent from publications and owner brands / major sponsors.

I've been there for almost 20 years but the front page news was my first stop and then the comments. It also used to have a great storage subforum with lots of knowledgeable people along with a case modding section too.

Oh, well, time flies and something tells me 10-20 years from now maybe there are no forums left for us older dudes (44 now)....

In any case, smart move! I really doubt he could kept it going for long and make a living out of it..great timing.

Intel doesn't know what enthusiasts want? Nah they want to make money off selling underperforming overpriced highly marketed product.

Gotta admit I had a feeling something like this was coming. I had been a regular over there for about a decade and loved it. Bought the t-shirts, paid for GenMay subscription and was one of the first Patrons. But man the last several months you could tell Kyle was just burned out.

Pretty much every post of his was angry or sour about something. If somebody mouthed off to him they didn't just get banned, he was deleting accounts. Kyle used to love going toe to toe with people and aside from an embarrassing "poof" you could speak your mind to him without fear of reprisal.

Not only did he start treating his readers/members like trash but he managed to tick off the entire YouTube tech channel crowd, not to mention Nvidia (which they kinda deserved).

I guess 20 years of doing the same thing can get old especially in a changing, ad blocking, YouTubing climate.

I hate it's gone tho. Most of what I know about PC gaming and building I learned on his forum and from his articles. No matter how big a tool he turned into I owe him for that. I do hope he has success.
