Intel working on Arctic Sound discrete GPU for gamers

Raja Koduri is behind the project

Last year we published a news about Raja Koduri, since the Radeon Technologies Boss was leaving AMD. Later in the same month it emerged that Koduri was Senior Vice President, Core and Visual Computing Group, General Manager, Edge Computing Solutions, Chief Architect at Intel. Now, according to NoteBookCheck, Koduri is working to redefine the Arctic Sound discrete GPU to be powerful enough for gaming.

According the first rumors, the Intel Arctic Sound GPU was aiming applications such as video streaming and data center processing. However the analyst from NoteBookCheck said that Intel will release an Arctic Sound variant for PC gaming as well. This could be a good strategy for Intel since most of the GPUs from both NVIDIA and AMD are in shortage due to cryptocurrency mining trend.

We have seen the last discrete GPU from Intel almost 20 years ago with the i740 based on 350nm process. According to the source, we have to wait almost a couple of years before the launch of this allegedly gaming GPU from Intel.
