Intel Xe: One GPU Architecture To Rule Them All (Page 5)

| Jan 9, 2020 at 11:00 am CST

Intel Loves The Community (And So It Should)

One of the first things Intel did with Xe was begin its Odyssey, a journey with fans of Intel that could come along for this momentous ride. The fans and community have been a gigantic win for Intel, across Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, and thousands of forums and other online meeting places to discuss all-things Intel.


Intel has been listening to the community and their feedback and wish lists, with Retro Scaling being one of them -- a huge deal for retro games, and a sly win for Intel. Xe is a low-power part on the consumer graphics card side of things, so you won't be running Crysis or Remedy's 2019 hit Control maxed out.

But you can run retro-style games with much-improved graphics thanks to Retro Scaling. Not just that, but the Intel Graphics Control Center beta program has seen hardware-accelerated capture, combined desktop, and a sharing ability on Discord.

Reddit 'Ask You Anything' Planned For January 16

Intel loves their community so much that they've announced a new Reddit 'Ask You Anything' where you can dive in with people from Intel, ask questions, and be heard. We should expect more to be revealed about Xe, but it seems that the new Reddit AYA concentrating on software enablement. I hope Intel isn't hard-lining on that, and lets the gamers and community squeeze out some nuggets on Xe.
