Video: Intel promises PC owners smartphone-like battery life. Intel hasn't really spoken about a focus yet, just speaking in broad strokes, but it would make sense for it to focus on the big money AI space to start with and hope that will produce graphics silicon that's competitive in the gaming market too.
In a very short tweet posted to their Twitter feed yesterday, Intel revealed/confirmed the launch date for their first discrete GPU developed under the company's new dGPU initiative. A new report published by analyst Ryan Shrout, often seen over at PCPer, reveals that Intel's first discrete graphics chips will become available in 2020. Though we do know from Intel's statements when they hired Koduri that they're starting with high-end GPUs, a fitting choice given the accelerator market Intel is going after. In November, the company announced Raja Koduri, who previously headed up AMD's Radeon Technologies Group, would join its team as vice president of its new Core and Visual Computing Group.
Koduri now serves as Intel's chief architect and SVP of the newly created Core and Visual Computing Group. Intel may still just about hold sway in the CPU market, but they're now a long way behind in the graphics game.

Disney releases teaser trailer for Tim Burton's remake of 'Dumbo'

Burger King mocks IHOb name change and people are loving it
According to its new cover photo on Twitter and the remodeling of its logo, Burger King is now Pancake King. IHOP's burger-centric rebranding as IHOb has inspired some mockery from fast-food chains .
Intel also mentioned that it will unify and expand differentiated IP across computing, graphics, media, imaging and machine intelligence capabilities for the client and data center segments, artificial intelligence, and emerging opportunities like edge computing.
Shrout notes that Intel's 2020 plans are ambitious given the three-year development cycle for complex design and the need to build it from scratch.
This new GPU would be the first GPU to come out of Intel's revitalized GPU efforts, which kicked into high gear at the end of 2017 with the hiring of former AMD and Apple GPU boss Raja Koduri. "Intel needs to provide a performance and efficiency level that is in the same ballpark as Nvidia and AMD; within 20 percent or so", the analyst noted.
