    Bit early to make any judgement on this what with it's not completed yet. When , who knows , bugs , drivers to sort out but what I've read on reports across the net it doesn't look that promising. I'm not inclined towards Intel but wish them luck with it , some extra competition against Nvidea and AMD in the GPU market has to be welcome , GPU prices are ridiculous. You can buy a decent chip and M/B for the price of a middling GPU card , doesn't make sense to me at all.

    That's because the average person buys a pc for word processing, solitaire and some you-tube maybe. The average consumer wouldn't even know what a graphics card is.

    The price of the high end is high for several reasons, only one of which is the lack of decent competition at the high end. Highhighhighhigh. Wheee.

    My concern here is that Intel is going to abuse its market position to force developers to optimise for their cards, playing similar games to the CPU market. They say "enabling" developers to optimise. I see that as worrying given their history.

    No it's because mid range the best you've got is a 5700 XT with poor driver issues while still costing at least £350, just needs some competition.
