Intel is known to be the leader when it comes to chip manufacturing. While we know that the Intel processors are leading the PC market, Intel’s graphics cards are also currently the best. In recent times, AMD announced their 3rd generation of processors in the Ryzen series which are competing against Intel’s Core processors. However, the same cannot be said when it comes to graphic cards.
But the one aspect regarding Intel’s graphics card is that they are out of reach for mainstream users. Although they offer great performance, they should also be available for a maximum number of users. Now, there are reports which reveal that Intel is working on graphics cards that will be available for mainstream users as well. In an interview given to Russian YouTube channel, Intel’s Raja Koduri says that the company is looking forward to providing graphics cards for mainstream gamers and other users as well.
We also heard reports that Intel’s new graphics card in the Xe series will be priced in sub $200 segment. But we can now report that it was a mistranslation because of the language barrier. While Koduri tried to say that they want to offer something for the $200 mainstream market, it did not mean that Intel will launch the Xe graphics cards in $200 range.
However, the interesting part about Koduri’s statement is that he says they are not really worried about the performance. But they want to focus on the price of their graphics cards as they want to target the price-focused users. At the moment, we know that AMD’s Radeon graphics cards are the only ones available in sub $500 range. Nvidia, on the other hand, is a company which launches their graphics cards in the GTX and RTX series above the $500 mark which has a market but is limited to heavy graphical users only.
