    Quick note, Intel had a dedicated graphics card way back in the late 90's, just around the time that the 3DFX cards were around. I believe it was the I740 and it was competing with some of the other vendors like Diamond, Matrox and 3DFX to an extent as it used Intel's new AGP technology. I think there was a follow up, like an I920 or something like that but they weren't around long.

    I actually really hope this turns out well, I'd love to do a system with Ryzen, but it'd be cool to do it the other way around next build, AMD CPU and Intel GPU lol. I'd totally do it as long as it was good performance for my price range.
    Oh wait, I thought maybe Intel was legit about to come out with a line of GPU's maybe next year or something lol.

    Didn't Intel have an opportunity to buy Nvidia like AMD bought ATI? They obviously don't have the talent for the software side of things. They have incredible engineers working on high end projects with one of the largest customer bases in the world. They obviously don't have the overhead to work on software and optimization, theyre going to have to make some acquisitions. AMD would have never been making graphics cards without ATI under their belts.

I dont remember aw well no biggie. i loved this video btw. big fan.

    I bought really expensive "supposed-to-be-reaaaally-good" sennheiser once, shittiest headphones I've ever used for gaming... Im on studio headphones now and its the best choice I've ever made when it comes to tech for sound. Rocking the BeyerDynamic DT 990 Pro which is cheaper than sennheiser and the audio quality is so crisp and clean. Don't fall for Sennheiser if you are going to use them for gaming. Because its all brand price and not quality. (about the sponsored ad at the end). I use them without AMP+DAC and its still mindblowing on the quality...once i get the AMP and DAC it will blow my brains out of how good it will sound. Just a tip im sliding in here on choosing headphones for gaming, go for studio headphones, not "gaming" headphones. Thank me later!

  • Marc Rover
    Marc Rover 16 days ago

    I knew it wouldn't work. I imagine a "GPU" that relies primarily on raw-processing + clever software-design could face a LOT of issues when communicating with unknown boards (especially without the latest drivers.) Frankly, I suspect that the board that ran that GPU had specific drivers designed for it. That might be another reason Intel's approach wasn't successful.

    Some years ago I saw an I7-970 Intel cpu for sale on Ebay for a good price. I bid and won. Upon delivery inspection I notice that it is an engineering sample cpu. Ebay and most computer forums have rules about selling engineering sample components. Neither the seller nor Ebay understood that while I can certainly use this engineering sample cpu I can't use Ebay (the place I bought it) to sell it. OH well.
