Intel working on discrete GPU, should feature Radeon tech

Intel is working on a next-gen discrete GPU, where they could battle directly against NVIDIA.

After going on a Twitter blast a few days ago with VideoCardz where I said I heard early rumbles of Intel working on its own next-gen discrete GPU, rumors are now floating out that Intel is indeed working on their own GPU.

Ashraf Essa from The Motley Fool is reporting that Intel is working on two new GPU solutions with codenames of Arctic Sound and Jupiter Sound, with the former being a 12th generation discrete GPU and the latter a 13th generation discrete GPU. Intel's Gen 9 solution is found on Kaby Lake while the Gen 9.5 solution is on Coffee Lake, while Gen 10 will come with Cannonlake soon.

We should expect them sometime after 2020, but with RTG boss Raja Koduri now on Intel's team, it makes sense. NVIDIA is fighting the good fight with their GeForce line up and virtually no competitor in the GTX 1080 and above space, but Intel could soon enter as a big competitor with their own Radeon-powered discrete GPU that does have me wondering: what's the future of Radeon under AMD if Intel can do better with Radeon GPU tech than AMD can.
