Intel Introducing Discrete GPUs in 2020

Raja Koduri, Intel Chief Architect, Senior Vice President, Core and Visual Computing GroupAs a follow-up to our earlier story about how the discrete graphics card market has grown, it looks like Intel is officially throwing their hat in the ring with their own AIB (add in board) products to be released as early as 2020.

Intel got some wild headline space earlier this year when they secured Raja Koduri as their Chief Architect, Senior Vice-President and General Manager for Cores & Visual Computing & Edge Computing Solutions along with Chris Hook for Discrete Graphics and Visual Technologies Marketing.  Both were previously senior executives at Advanced Micro Devices.

Boy Were We Right: HTC Vive Focus

HTC Vive Focus

We are not exaggerating when we say that this could be the biggest and most influential development in virtual reality - heck, immersive technology - in a very long time.  First, let's get the general stuff out of the way!

The Vive Focus is a mobile VR device put out by HTC.  Their new 2.0 software update adds:

  • 6-DoF (AKA positional tracking) to their VR controller controller
  • HTC smartphone integration
  • Gesture recognition
  • A unique mode for when using VR in a moving vehicle
  • Surroundings mode that lets you see the world through the pass-through cameras
  • Improved storage options

However, this is just piecemeal stuff.  The real story is that through a 5K wifi connection, the HTC Vive Focus will be able to stream SteamVR and HTC Viveport content from your PC to your headset.
