Intel has brought in several professionals who have worked in the gaming industry for over a decade to join its graphics division. Information about this appeared on the twitter of the company.
First on the list are Andre Bermer, who spent 20 years in the state with several major publishers (EA Games, LucasArts, Zynga, Prime Gaming and Amazon), and Michael Heilemann (EA Games, Vivendi, Dreamworks and Sony). Two more new hires have worked at AMD for over a decade. Steve Bell was in charge of liaison with game developers there, and Ritchie Corpus was the head of the gaming and professional software department.
Intel’s first discrete graphics cards are rumored to go on sale in early 2022. It is expected that the most budget model will compete in performance with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Super, and the flagship will fall into the niche of the GeForce RTX 3070 and Radeon RX6700 XT.
