Intel has confirmed that it will start selling discrete graphics cards in 2020, which will be aimed at various markets including gaming, AI and the data centre.

“We’re pleased to confirm our first discrete GPU is coming in 2020,” Intel told The Register.

“As we’ve previously stated, our intent is to expand our leading position in integrated graphics for the PC market with high-end discrete graphics solutions for a broad range of computing segments.”

The Intel News Twitter account also posted an update confirming the plans, but included a link that leads to a November 2017 announcement about Raja Koduri, who will be leading the push.

According to Shrout, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich revealed some details at an analyst event last week, but didn’t get into any real specifics.

However, it’s still very exciting news for gamers, who’ll be licking their lips at the prospect of Intel, Nvidia and AMD going head-to-head(-to-head).

Whether or not Intel actually manages to produce something on a par with Nvidia and AMD remains to be seen, but the promise of could force the two leaders to further raise their game.
