On Monday, Aug. 20, graphics giant Nvidia is expected to announce its next-generation graphics cards -- , or perhaps the GTX 1180. It should be based on a new Turing architecture that's theoretically capable of bringing significant levels of real-time ray tracing (think insanely realistic reflections and lighting, here's a demo) in video games.
But Intel is trying to pre-empt that party with a reminder that it, too, .
Intel's first discrete graphics card in nearly 20 years, in fact -- unless you count , which kinda actually wasn't canceled and , one which wound up becoming part of the world's fastest supercomputer for a bit.
With no further ado, here's Intel's new teaser tweet:
Do we have any idea what Intel's GPU will be capable of? Not really. It's not even clear it'll be priced or specced for gaming, though we do know that AMD's Radeon architect Raja Kodurito help build the product. And if it's coming in 2020, it probably won't deter you in the slightest from picking up a new GPU from Nvidia or AMD in 2018.
But it's a cool thing to look forward to, yeah?
