Intel now faces a fight for its future

  Intel now faces a fight for its future Intel is facing a turning point in its nearly 50-year history. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich resigned yesterday, following an ongoing investigation into a past consensual relationship with an Intel employee that violated the company’s non-fraternization policy. Krzanich was appointed Intel CEO five years ago, and was left with the messy task of fleshing out Intel’s mobile strategy and driving the company forward in new markets. Known for PCs and servers, Intel’s business has been disrupted by smartphones and the cloud, and was caught seemingly unaware by the rise of AI and autonomous vehicles.

While there are plenty of questions surrounding Intel 's plans to launch discrete GPUs , we now know at least one thing—the first one is coming sometime in 2020 . It seems pretty clear that Intel is headed toward releasing a discrete graphics card for gaming at some point, which is pretty exciting.

That confirmation came in a short tweet today: Intel plans to release its first discrete GPU -- one that isn't integrated into a CPU like its current graphics -- in 2020.

In a meeting with analysts last week, Intel executive Navin Shenoy noted that it's exploring both server and client (gaming and professional graphics) offerings, according to Ryan Shrout. There's no telling which market Intel is targeting first, but either way, both NVIDIA and AMD should take notice.

Samsung targets 100 percent renewable energy use by 2020

  Samsung targets 100 percent renewable energy use by 2020 Samsung has announced plans to power its US, Europe and China operations entirely by renewable energy sources within two years. It's an ambitious but achievable goal, no doubt spurred by the environmental credentials its rivals already boast in this area. Apple says it's now powered entirely by renewable energy, Google is offsetting all of its operational energy through wind and solar, and T-Mobile has already announced plans for 100 percent renewable energy by 2021. It makes financial sense, too, given reports that renewables will likely be cheaper than fossil fuels in just a couple of years' time.

Intel confirmed on Tuesday, June 12, that it ’ s officially re-entering the discrete graphics market in 2020 . Without providing any additional information, Intel simply linked back to a previous announcement revealing that former AMD Radeon graphics chip designer Raja Koduri is now Intel ’s

Intel announced that it would develop its own discrete graphics cards late last year when it hired ex-AMDer Raja Koduri to head up its new Core and Visual Computing Group. Now Intel has divulged, via Twitter, that the company will bring a discrete graphics card to market in 2020 .

As Shrout points out, even a 2020 release seems surprisingly fast for Intel. When it announced Koduri's hiring last November, along with the formation of a new Core and Visual Computing Group, Intel was basically starting from scratch. While the company's integrated graphics technology has steadily improved over the years, it still can't hold a candle to the performance of a dedicated GPU. That's one reason why Intel teamed up with AMD to integrate a Radeon GPU into a Core processor, which would allow for decent gaming performance in thin and light machines. While that partnership was surprising at first, it's most clearly a stopgap plan until Intel can deliver its own GPUs.

Mel Gibson Loses Bid to Block Release of ‘Professor and the Madman’ .
Mel Gibson has lost a key round in his battle for control of “The Professor and the Madman,” potentially clearing the way for the release of the star-crossed film about the origins of a dictionary. The picture is based on Simon Winchester’s book about the collaboration between Professor James Murray and William Minor, an inmate in a mental asylum, to create the Oxford English Dictionary. Gibson has long wanted to produce the film, and in 2015 struck a production deal with Voltage Pictures.
