Intel isn't known for its particularly powerful graphics processors, but the company has been trying to change that in recent months. Earlier this year, the company unveiled its first processors with built-in AMD graphics, but even before that, it had already hired Raja Koduri, a major figure in the development of AMD's GPUs.
The fruits of that acquisition were initially seen a few weeks ago when Intel showed off a prototype of a discrete GPU of its own making, and now it looks like Intel might be gearing up for an announcement early next year.
According to a report by TweakTown, citing unnamed sources, we can expect something from Intel later this year, but a full announcement is set to take place at the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2019.
The information comes at a time when Intel is going through a rough patch, with its CPUs being affected by a series of security vulnerabilities since the last months of 2017. Hopefully, Intel's upcoming offerings won't be afflicted by such problems.
As of right now, there are no details as to how powerful Intel's cards will be, and it's hard to predict what segment of the market Intel might be shooting for, but if the information is accurate we should have less than one year to wait to find out.
Editor's note: The article originally stated that the rumored discrete GPU from Intel was the company's first one. This is not the case, and the article has been corrected. We apologise for the confusion.
