Intel plans to release discrete graphics chips in 2020

Intel's CEO, Brian Krzanich, has reportedly confirmed that the company plans to release their first dedicated graphics chips in 2020, turning the high-end graphics market into a three horse race.

Moving forward, Intel plans to create graphics components for the gaming, data center and artificial intelligence markets, hoping to generate more revenue for the company during a time where the processor market is likely to be more competitive than ever.  

By 2020, Intel hopes to have created graphics technology that will be able to compete with the likes of AMD and Nvidia, either in raw performance or value for money, allowing them to diversify and create more powerful integrated graphics solutions for their future processors.  

Intel hired Raja Koduri in November 2018, the former head of AMD's Radeon Technologies Group, an ideal leader for Intel's graphics efforts. New chip architecture developments typically take three years or longer, making a 2020 timeframe an aggressive launch schedule for Intel, though at this time it is unknown where in the market Intel is targeting with this release. 

Intel's Navin Shenoy has reportedly confirmed that Intel is working on both datacenter and client product types, which likely means that Intel plans to develop a chip that is suitable for several markets, from gaming to professional to even datacenter computing. Both AMD and Nvidia use the same chip designs to service several markets, with changes in firmware and software defining how well each product works within specific applications.

There is no doubt that Intel is capable of creating high-end graphics technology, with the question being whether or not Intel can catch up to both AMD and Nvidia by 2020. Graphics products require great hardware and software support to offer high levels of performance.

Will Intel be able to create a compelling graphics product range in 2020? You can join the discussion on Intel's plans to release discrete graphics chips in 2020 on the OC3D Forums

Please let it be so! Even if I won't buy it, a third player is good to have.Quote

they certainly have the funding for it. Perhaps with AMD clawing back market share they need to expand elsewhere?Quote

This was always going to happen. I mean they went to AMD for gpus when they already make their own igpus.
This is good news, let's hope they go all the way and make gaming level chipsQuote
