    Only just employing people of that calibre when it's just around the corner?

    I hope i'm just being a cynical pessimist.

    Right around the corner according to a company that really embraces slipped schedules.

    Intel shouldn't worry about Xess. Just launch the GPU and let Xess follow. It's worked for AMD.

    ^This.

    Most companies say things like 'soon', 'any day now' and 'right around the corner', when they really mean 'In the next three to five years... probably... long as nothing goes wrong'.

    I'm sure if they can produce something even remotely capable, they'll sell. You'd have to be a fool to buy into these new cards, even more so given Intel are the creators.

    It may have some redeeming qualities even if gaming is not up to par or has to wait on driver optimization. I'm really excited for this because of gvt-g , intel's alternative to nvidia grid or sriov (it allows you to split a single gpu between vm's). The vfio community will be all over this for sure.

    This is why no warhol 6nm I suspect. Intel will likely up to 5nm or 4nm next again hurting AMD wafers. These will sell out, no matter how good/bad they are just due to ZERO cards for gamers. If they can mine some coin great, zero cards still for gamers as they'll be sold in minutes if that's the case....ROFL. Either way, a great way for Intel to limit AMD without giving up process info to TSMC for cpus. Intel has 0% of the discrete desktop market, so 3070ti's will do just fine for the first run and probably take up quit a few wafers while doing it. other than questions about Intel's ability to make drivers gameready all year (so to speak for big games), the silicon should be fairly good vs. TSMC 7nm AMD or 8nm samsung NV. I just wish they had went BIGGER for the win. Go big or go home and the more wafers you steal from TSMC for gpus, the less AMD has available for whatever they wanted.

    AMD already pisses away mass wafers on consoles, this just helps Intel more. Even shifting AMD's mix to higher end stuff last few Q's hasn't gotten them a 1B NET Q (and no, 1 time tax breaks a Q ago don't count, back down to 550m again!). OUCH. 3yrs+ of winning and still can't match Q4 2009 and you've lost 1/2 assets since then, doubled outstanding shares (meaning yours are half 2009 value), etc etc. Macrotrends.net and look up 15yrs of any company. AMD's story is getting better, but miles from their stock price vs. 2009 when looking at all that has been lost since then and the price back then for years.

    Oops, maybe I should have used "Codswallop", does that get past the filter?
