AMD RTG Project Canis Flagship Leaked: An Intel & AMD Desktop GPU Joint Venture Politics makes for strange bedfellows, because my enemy's enemy becomes my best friend! Nvidia has such a huge lead over both Intel and AMD in the area of AI that the latest rumor here strongly implies the two long time rivals have joined forces. With the exception of their prices and graphics, Intel has every advantage over AMD imaginable, but neither of them can touch Nvidia's AI and graphics. Intel is so far ahead of everyone in manufacturing processing that Nvidia can't keep up and has developed their own high speed asics to compete with Nvidia's "Tensor Cores" designed by IBM. AMD brings their infinity fabric and Navi architecture which allows them to scale multiple gpu chips, rather than relying on more expensive larger single chips. What this article does not mention, is that it would mean that Intel-AMD graphics cards could be made much more low powered and, eventually, jambed onto a 30w chip for laptops, with up to 50 teraflops of compute! On one stupid APU a few inches in diameter! All of these companies are fighting over AI research, with Nvidia merely being the first to transition most of their business into AI applications thanks to their powerhouse graphics cards. He who controls the AI controls the machines and, apparently, Intel has no intention of allowing Nvidia to dominate the market any longer. Praise Be To the Gods of Video Gaming!!! The high tech giants are about to try and undercut each other's technology while, right now, even a mere 20 teraflops of compute is more than enough for almost anyone's needs, including ray tracing, VR, and 4k gaming at extremely high frame rates. A 50 teraflop video card would be almost 40 teraflops more than the current GTX 1080 Ti and almost half that of the 110 teraflop Titan V, possibly costing in the neighborhood of $1,500.oo for 20 or more teraflops, which is the enthusiast market, but prices are cut in half every three years. That would mean PC gamers finally have some incentive not to buy a damned console, with the PS5 rumored to be coming out with 20 teraflops of performance, meaning that a PC would require double that to produce the same graphics, which is expensive on PCs today by even enthusiast standards. Assuming there is any truth to the rumor, we may hear confirmation in the summer when Nvidia starts to push their new Ampere graphics cards. These corporations always attempt to take wind out of each other's sales. AMD and Intel have already combined their cpu and gpu technologies with impressive results, but this would take it to the next level and eliminate Nvidia's huge advantage over AMD, not only being the underdog, but not having their own manufacturing capacity and technology.
