    Intel Arc Alchemist won't have added crypto limiter / LHR tech

    But Intel says it will be "very aggressive" in its attack on the consumer GPU market.

    and ETH mining on GPUs coming to an end (by 2021 end)
    Yeah right...

    I would imagine they wouldn't want to add a LHR because it means their GPUs will be more likely be purchased, be out in the wild and utilised.

    I'd still be interested to know exactly how LHR cards are created and what they actually do on a technical level, although I expect that info will never be out in the wild due to it being used to bypass the LHR function..

    Why would they? Like Nvidia/AMD they can use the crypto excuse to jack up consumer pricing more and more.

    Re: Intel Arc Alchemist won't have added crypto limiter / LHR tech

    For almost effort on Intel's part, Intel gets at least some guaranteed sales, so why wouldn't they?

    As long as there are no deliberate mining blocks, the mining software should get optimised for Intel.

    Whereas sorting out drivers for older gamers is hard, why so would the go out of their way to limit crypto?

    I'm expecting Intel to perform poorly at many games except the latest blockbusters (for which due no lack of sponsorship or console market, I'd expect them to be still have their game ready drivers after Nvidia and AMD).

    Wasn't the Intel GPU in planning and production LONG before Pat Gelsinger became CEO? Comes across as brown-nosing from Raja...

    I think many of us long suspected that not only does Raja love to talk and boast more than he should, he also loves to play power games. Wasn't there talk he wanted the job himself?

    Intel have been doing graphics for many years at this point, if those old games don't run by now I suspect they never will.

    You are right; the likelihood is that since they have never bothered, they won't now.

    Some buyers won't care. Like the one who don't care that something like a 10GB 3080 might age badly because next year they'll have bought the next big thing, there are plenty of buyers who only want this year's latest hyped game to run and don't care about replaying their modded back catalogue etc. I suspect a lot of those gamers would actually be better served with a console.
