Intel discrete graphics card still coming in 2020

Chip maker giant Intel has seen its kingdom slowly shrinking from the combined onslaught of ARM on the mobile side and AMD’s resurrection on the PC side. While it still has some things to boast about over its long-time rival, the one thing can’t claim is having a superior graphics solution the way AMD has ATI.

It also inadvertently reminded them that it’s not the first time Intel tried to come up with a discrete GPU of its own.

NVIDIA restocks GeForce GPUs at normal prices, but you need to act fast

Finding a GPU at MSRP is a pretty tough task these days. Thanks to cryptocurrency miners buying up much of the available stock, the cards that remain usually see inflated prices.
