I need your optimism! :)
I'd love Intel to create a genuine alternative 'third-way' to the Nvidia / AMD graphics card hegemony, but I've been burned on their discrete GPU promises in the past. And even if Raja can do the impossible and bring Intel up to speed with the two main players it's going to be a good few years before we see that relationship bear fruit.
I did miss the subtle suggestion by Samsung that they'd be hitting the discrete GPU market, though I expect they're more interested in looking at another dedicated ASIC that is able to capture GPU mining rather than a chip that's capable of running game code.
However, if they offer up some slack in the gaming GPU market that would be a god-send! Again, though, it wouldn't be for years - making a competitive discrete GPU isn't easy, just ask the Larrabee engineers.
Raja hardly left AMD on a high though - Vega was a real damp squib!
Off topic - Is your profiles page bugged? Tried to change avatar and it won't accept a file or from Steam?
That's right I just made site maintenance YOUR dept Dave! :p
Aww, thanks! I'll have a looksee ;)
And if it's one that pops up after a crypto-crash you know it's probably been utterly thrashed.
The game honestly confuses me.
I understood its early popularity, despite the state it was in. It was fresh and new, still fun, with the hope of improving and being cleaned up. Yeah, that still really hasn't happened yet.
I don't understand the appeal of shoddy development. It's as if the game's popularity itself and staggering population are an indication that despite its flaws, it's ok to play. "Hey, thousands of others are still playing so they must not mind."
I'm not sure I'll ever return to it. The game should be in a much better state than it is, and for whatever reason they seem incapable of polish.
Unfortunately, as the article already points out, there are fundamental flaws in this game as a functional shooter.
That's beyond "polish" - it's papering over the cracks,
Do AMD have the budget themselves for large-scale marketing across a broad range of OEMs and system builders? I'm not so sure - at least not to the same scale as Intel so far.
This potential move by Intel will likely aid AMD however, levelling the playing field to some degree, and possibly opening new marketing channels to team red.
