I pray this works…

Intel’s CES announcements weren’t just about the new Arc GPU, but it may just be the most exciting one thanks to its unique opportunity to shake up Nvidia and AMD’s hold on the market.

Bless us, Patrick Gelsinger, and these thy Arc GPUs, which we are about to receive from Intel, through Gordon Moore and Robert Noice. Praise be to Intel.

Ok, so I watch the GPU part of the video. I'm pleased we are going to have another option for a gaming ("gaming") card, but if the demand outstrips supply, again, then nothing will really change, except the bots and scalpers will have more options to screw us regular folk over with.

 

Perhaps I missed it (or it hasn't been addressed yet) but how is the Arc with mining? If it's good for gaming, buck sux for mining (if such a scenario is possible, I dunno) then we might all have a shot at getting one.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

I'm not a fan of giving people false hope, but here we are. ANYTHING is better than nothing in this GPU shortage. Altough i've given up hope that any 3080 will ever sell at $699 again, i sure hope it will get at least somewhat better than straight up 2x MSRP at launch.

 

Man, it still sounds like a fairly tale if you tell someone a 3080 actually "launched" at $699.

I was planning to get my first ever real GPU with the new generation back then. It never happened. 

But since I'm not in need of a GPU my reaction was kind of a shoulder shrug. 

 

If they ever become available again, I'll get one. Maybe. 

But only the AMD ones, since I'm on Linux and their open source drivers are the best, as far as I know.

That is one of the whole things that people are wondering about since Intel has pretty good open source drivers for their current stuff so we don't yet know if their graphics drivers will be good or not.

I wonder if those cards will allow 4K playback of Ultra HD discs (for the damn DRM)...

Can we please stop with the fake "AI enhanced" upscaled resolutions? like, please. 

It shouldn't be a main feature of a graphics card because it means they're charging you more for it even though it's kind of useless for mainstream workloads and only some games look somewhat good if you use it.

 

My card has "super resolution" and honestly all of the games look fucking terrible like if I was playing on a Playstation and it's 2001. Games should run at native resolution if you don't want to miss details.

They paper launched at $699, the scalper rate was no less than two times that.

Yeah but not at launch. Was able to snag mine for 900€ a few weeks after release - admittetly from a scalper - and i'm glad i did seeing how pricing is nowadays.

I'm kinda worried because of that ***Windows Only at 9:31 in the video. 

Quote me if you want me to get a notification. (if it's not my own thread)

Assume I'm using Linux as you would assume other people use Windows. Using since 2016, daily driving since 2018.

I would recommend not worrying too much as the *** is for the Intel Connectivity Performance Suite where the Intel Killer Performance Suite currently exists but is already Windows only where it's a set of Wi-Fi and ethernet drivers that includes a networking software for trying to prioritize and optimize the connections for Intel computers. So it shouldn't be a huge factor for GPUs I would think.

 

Though it's not the most clear admitedly but my best guess is that it's the Intel special sauce to help with Wifi 6e is windows only.

One thing that Intel can do with the mobile i9's is set a minimum standard for power and cooling that gives it more power and cooling headroom then the i7. That would give it more boost performance and set it apart from the i7.

 

Please take that with a grain of salt as it is just a guess on my part.
