    Excuse my skepticism, but has Intel ever been successful in it's many attempts at diversification?

    Lest we forget Intel's previous foray into the graphics AIB market:

    What is it with all of these 1 post wonders posting anti intel info in the IDF section?

    same guy probably lol

    but intel are saying there drivers are nearly ready and tbh i believe they can get it done.

    I hope they can give nvidia a big kick in the nuts as nvidia are taking it way to easy at mo they are just recycling different G92 chips at the moment

    Amen to that. Fun though isn't it? I mean, not so long ago Intel themselves were sitting back on processors and integrated video in chipsets. AMD kicked them into to touch on one and MS on the other (Vista).

    Re: Intel Larrabee graphics cards to be sold via AIBs. NVIDIA and ATI may lose partne

    While i think giving ATi/Nvidia a kick up the arse is a good thing, i'd much rather Intel focussed on pushing the performance of their integrated chips. So many laptops suffer with decent processors and the now pretty much standard 2gb RAM, but fail miserably on graphics that are intel integrated.

    Re: Intel Larrabee graphics cards to be sold via AIBs. NVIDIA and ATI may lose partne

    Yeah - if new integrated graphics cards were generally good enough for newer games (say decent enough to give a choice between low resolution / high detail and vice versa) I could imagine the PC gaming market taking off pretty quickly.

    Really pleased that AMD have had a half decent crack at the whip with 780G. Intel have needed a good kicking in the integrated department for years. Good platforms should beat fast CPUs for the OEM market.

    What is it with people who attack the messenger, instead of posting content.

    Again - can anyone name a product Intel has been successful with, outside of cpus and chipsets???

    Btw, I agree with the poster about the quality of Intel's integrated graphics. You'd think they'd get that right before attempting a discrete card.

    Network cards and chipsets, wireless cards etc.

    They did have a rather large flash memory business, but i think they spun it off.

    I can see this ending up like the Spanish Inquisition/what have the Romans ever done for us:

    "Has Intel ever been good at anything other than CPUs?"
    "Chipsets"
    "Has Intel ever been good at anything other than CPUs and chipsets?"
    "Network cards"
    "Has Intel ever...."

    This has gone weirdly off track - the question really is whether Intel's capable of getting into discreet graphics..

    Yes and it's not really off, since the answer seems to be:

    a) No, because they are only good at doing what they're doing already
    b) Yes, because they are good at doing what they're doing already

    Well that's cleared things up

    I don't doubt Intel have the financial clout to make it happen but seeing as they've traditionally made shedloads out of graphics at the low end of the market I wonder if they're really comitted to high endish discreet graphics. Coupled with their persistant idea that we'll all switch to realtime raytracing on intel trillion core cpus I'm not sure if I see it happening. Or will it be high volume low->mid end parts?
