Intel promises more powerful, longer-running PCs at Computex

  Intel promises more powerful, longer-running PCs at Computex A look at new CPUs, multiscreen PC prototypes and laptop screens that use less power.One important theme of Intel's announcements is that PCs, especially laptops, are still by far the most-used platform for creation and productivity. Bryant says, "When people really need to get things done, over 80 percent turn to their PC.

There's no telling which market Intel is targeting first , but either way, both NVIDIA and AMD should take notice. As Shrout points out, even a 2020 release seems surprisingly fast for Intel . While that partnership was surprising at first , it ' s most clearly a stopgap plan until Intel can deliver its own GPUs .

Intel has released details of its first discrete graphics processing unit ( GPU ) since the abandonment of the Larrabee project, unveiling a block diagram for a 14nm prototype at the Intel is planning to launch its first discrete GPU in 2020 | PC Gamer - www.pcgamer.com.

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.

Oilers acquire prospect Nolan Vesey in trade with Leafs

  Oilers acquire prospect Nolan Vesey in trade with Leafs The Edmonton Oilers have acquired Nolan Vesey from the Toronto Maple Leafs and have signed the forward to a two-year entry-level contract. The Maple Leafs received Edmonton's conditional seventh-round pick in 2020 in exchange. The 23-year-old Vesey completed his fourth season at the University of Maine in 2017-18, posting 25 points (11 goals, 14 assists) in 37 games, along with 16 penalty minutes. The six-foot-one, 211-pound forward appeared in 145 games over four seasons at Maine, compiling 82 points (39 goals, 43 assists).

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 . Intel confirmed the timeline in a Twitter post today

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.

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.
