Intel Iris Xe desktop graphics cards are here but you can’t have them yet

While Intel still holds the lion's share of the CPU market, it has never really been known to have any solid footing when it comes to the graphics department. Sure, its integrated GPUs power many a laptop or tablet but those still pale in comparison to even the mobile versions of NVIDIA's and AMD's chips. Intel has been making strides and heavily pushing its new Iris Xe architecture and now its first-ever discrete graphics cards for desktops have arrived, but you won't be able to buy them just yet.

Pantone Color of the Year is Illuminating Yellow, definitely not for Cyberpunk 2077

When I saw the two colors Pantone chose for their annual "Pantone Color of the Year", I was shocked. One is "Ultimate Gray," an eponymous representation of the color half way between white and black. The other is a very, very bright yellow - Illuminating! We suspected this yellow was chosen due to the launch of the most hyped-up video game launch of the year, Cyberpunk 2077. But it wasn't. This yellow is ever-so-slightly different from the one used by the future product powerhouse.

Laptops, on the other hand, offer an opportunity for Intel to break through and that is exactly what its new Iris Xe MAX discrete GPUs promise for thin and light laptops.
