A few days ago we got to knew about the new dedicated graphics card that Intel was working on. This card could be carried out, thanks to the help of Raja Koduri, who joined Intel after leaving AMD to lead the project. The director of the division has ensured that his work at Intel will lead to great things.
Is Intel working on something completely different?
Raja Koduri recently left AMD to become the Director of Architecture and vice president of the CVCG (Core Visual Computing Group), occupying a wide range of responsibilities within Intel. Raja has shared a tweet in which he ensures that he would love to be able to clarify the errors in the speculations that are taking place.
The engineer in me so badly wants to fix the inaccuracies in the speculations! My desire to fix is exponentially higher when the speculation is more closer to the truth! I have been itching all day long – I know some of you would die to see my tweet drafts:)

He added that he is sure that many would die to see their drafts in a tweet. Far from calming our desire to know all the mysteries of the new Intel graphics, Raja has managed to revive the flame and make the media fully enter the speculation.
They say it was just an example of the potential of their research
The company ruled on its own graphics, claiming that Intel presented a presentation in which it was intended to improve energy efficiency with new circuits. The research team used as an example the existing architecture of the ninth generation of integrated graphics. “This is just a test,” Intel assured that the images that we have shared all the media are the result of this test and that they are trying to investigate as much as possible in this field, in order to improve the performance and energy efficiency of Intel products.
Is Intel designing its own APU to compete with AMD?
This presents another scenario in which Intel could be working on the production of its own APU. The AMD Ryzen 2400G and 2200G have been announced with huge potential, far superior to Intel’s integrated graphics. Americans may be working on the creation of their own APU to compete with AMD.
Koduri himself has dropped that they are working on something different from what we set out to, so the theory of the APU can take an important role in the speculations. In addition, the newcomer to Intel has had a fairly direct contact with the APU, which could have given him an added value as an employee.
