    There aren't any links to the announcement. How am I supposed to know where did you find this information?

      Because I don't have any links to the information when writing the articles in advance. In advance I am usually just supplied PDFs.

        At the scale of YouTube it's not good enough. Google has designed their own Video Coding Unit for this purpose.

            Is it just me or is Intel getting really, really good at this business of announcing things?

              Perhaps the opposite. 30+ game streams of what? Just encoding?

                Minor typo...
                Arctic Sound M as reported many times in the past is built off their DG2 (Alchemsit)
                Test signature

                  I'm more and more convinced that this is going to be Larrabee/Xeon Phi all over again.

                  The consumer version will release, get panned for being rubbish, someone at Intel will throw their proverbial toys out of the pram and it will be cancelled, only to live on for a few years as a datacenter product before finally being completely canned. Maybe a cut down version will make it into the iGPUs of the 15th or 16th gen chips in the future.

                    My interpretation from combining this encoding with their focus on cloud gaming is that they are targeting this at online cloud gaming providers who need to run the game then encode the output as video to the player in real time. I wonder if there is enough of a market for this.
