      Poor Intel. They put so much money into this card to please Apple, then Apple went on to announce moving to ARM and ditching them. Well, good luck competing with nvidia then...

        What is the intended audience of this card? Is it 'desktop gamers' or rather 'compute workload' ?

          Finally some competition. I welcome Intel into the dgpu market, i hope they succeed. Nvidia and AMD have formed a cartel for far too long. They don't even pretend to be price-competing any more and they really haven't for many years, they just overinflate their prices. Yes Intel is not the best company when it comes to competitive behavior either, but at least it is less easy to fix the market between 3 than between 2, and since they are a newcomer they have every incentive to go aggressive into it.

            Not yet. But it would be very pleasant to see more competition in GPU market. Especially with good support for open-source.

              Can't wait to see this running in laptops. While AMD Ryzen has been showing good performance and are popping up into more and more laptops, its GPU is still an iGPU and is far from being a gaming GPU, and for whatever reason AMD dGPUs don't seem to be popular among laptop manufacturers. So, when Intel DG1 gets released it is likely to be the best option for a Linux gaming machine despite not yet matching high end nVidia dGPUs in terms of performance.

                I'm wondering if they will support GPU virtualization(GVT-g) with their discreet GPUs.
                Neither Nvidia nor AMD do with their consumer cards, which is a shame...

                  If the linux support is of the high standard that we are accustomed to from Intel and if this card can do good fps (way more than 60 in AAA games) at 1920x1080, I can see myself buying it.

                    well I think their goal was both but ...afaik development didn't turn out that well. So they just launch it and see how it goes to make the next generation better. I once read somewhere(sorry cant provide a link) that this is now targetnig developers to see how they respond.
