    no, Intel is really careless, prototype and test cards are in surplus on E bay

    "Quake was a weird edge case" --I need to Google this now when I have time because I would love to hear more specifics about why that was. Maybe Intel and Quake's software architecture were onto something that potentially could have lead to a breakthrough which could have changed how we think about writing games in general. Potentially though.

    I wouldn't expect this card to identify itself as a video card. It would make much more sense to have it in a secondary PCIe slot, connected to another monitor, so that it can be e.g. completely reprogrammed and rebooted on the fly without making the host computer unusable.

    I worked for intel. It was miserable. Every 6 months you had to do a presentation on yourself, basically giving your self a review. You were pitted against your coworkers and graded on a bell curve. Even if eveyone in your department was awesome, one of them was going to score last and get disciplined

    I'm not sure.. Usually ASIC hardware solutions are much much faster than software because software is just another layer of data that has to be processed by the hardware in order to process the data that we want to have processed... How is going back to software make things better? Unless this is some kind of hybrid thing like their latest FPGAs that combines an Altera FPGA with an Intel processor, so some kind of adaptative ASIC but still an ASIC in a lot of ways.

  • Bob Blaine
    Bob Blaine 13 days ago

    I'm not sure where you are getting your information about how GPU's work, but I think that the silicon based "Fixed Function Pipeline" that you are referring to went the way of the Dodo a number of years back. I believe that modern GPU's emulate the old fixed function pipeline for applications that need it in driver software and GPU instructions now. There are probably a few parts that are still in silicon around raster ops and generating an output signal, but not the pipeline itself. Also 64x4 cores was probably a lot for the time, but I think that a reasonable gaming GPU has around 1,000 or more...

    Don't mean to be a smart-ass, but en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel740 This was Intel's foray into the add-in graphics market in 1998. And yes, it was horrible. Using AGP did not save this thing in the slightest.
    But now, Intel is developing graphics cards for real maybe. Lets just hope it wasn't as bad as the last time.
