    He posted the slide from AMD stating it cost twice as much for 7nm.... So he used simple math to show that it comes out similar. It wasn't intended to be an exact #, just show that it's not 1/2 the price like gamer x keeps stating but closer to 1:1 based on factual data from AMD, not pure conjecture, hopes and dreams. Obviously unless TSMC or AMD releases the #'s, we can only guess, but that doesn't mean we can't call out blatantly false statements presented as fact using logic and data.
    He keeps changing the subject and skirting the responses while blaming others for doing the same... Hypocritical, ignores facts, and uses the term "fact" when he's using pure conjecture and guesswork (flawed at best). Seriously, if this is what you support, then you are no better. AMD has made great gains, I own all AMD gpus right now (in all 4 of my desktops + 1 laptop), so I'm not some Nvidia fanboy, but I'm not an AMD fan boy either. AMD had a price/performance i could live with at the time. That doesn't make them magic and defy laws of physics. ;)

    You guys are trying to argue with a guy that make hardware purchases based on feelings and company attachments... don't waste time ans/or effort, facts works for rational minds not "feeling" guided ones.

    Really? I probably have more hardcore and logical knowledge then you will ever hope to have. (Just a guess, of course.) I base my personal purchases on what I know works for me and who I choose to support, whether you personally like or agree with that or not. As for my knowledge, I know what it is in the industry and what works with what and what is needed in any given scenario.

    If you disagree with me, that is fine but you have crossed the line into disrespect.

    I do not hitch my wagon with anyone here. :)

    I believe he was referring to GamerX... Though mixups are bound to happen when the behaviors are similar.

    I'm not under any illusion that intel has struggled to get 10nm going and will still have issues with mass production of desktop cpus. But I'm not really concerned about that, they will produce Xe in 10nm and possibly take advantage of emib and price the gpus competitively with the margins they want. Furthermore, they'll be pushing Xe into laptops in both integrated and discrete form which will put significant pressure on both amd and nVidia. They will shake up the market a lot in the next 2-3 years and I think AMD will take the biggest losses.

    Intel pricing things below their competition? What planet do you live on? That has never happened in the past so I do not see it happening in the future, based upon Intel's business practices.

    He said competitive, not less than, but read it as you will. Either way, I don't have huge hopes for Intels first dGPU, but they do have the resources to be competitive. Maybe we'll be surprised, maybe disappointed, more than likely it'll be just another card about the same price about the same performance.

    Edit:. Reading your qoute, it appears he changed the words to competitive after, sorry about that. The rest of what I said still applies and I'll leave my.origin statement just because it's based on what his post said when I read it.

    They will be competitive which means likely below NVidia prices and probably on par with AMD depending on how good Xe performs. Raja already said they will cover ranges from $100 to enterprise. As a new competitor with deep pockets, they will come in swinging.

    I read exactly what he typed: "price the gpus below what amd or nVidia could with the margins they want."

    I was reading his last post in which he stated "But I'm not really concerned about that, they will produce Xe in 10nm and possibly take advantage of emib and price the gpus competitively with the margins they want". My mistake that he said something different and earlier.

    That was before I edited the post almost immediately after typing it, you just happened to catch it before I did. Competitive is the better description with lower prices than nVidia and on par with AMD is my prediction except with better margins than AMD.

    But you did when you stated his math was not accurate, implying the original math by gamer x was accurate, which is not true. Obviously both are wrong (just guesses), but at least one isn't completely ignoring facts that they didn't want to beleive :).
    I will say based on what we know, 1:1 sounds closer, but like I said, they are both estimates and guesses.

    Nope, I do not hitch my wagon onto anyone here. :) As for my 5700, the thing kicks and only will be getting better over time. :) And for the games I play, it is faster.

    This isn't Intel the dominant market share holder, this is Intel the outsider trying to break in.

    Witness what they did not just selling for less, but billions in subsidies trying to break into the Android ecosystem:
    https://www.valuewalk.com/2014/11/intel-stop-subsidizing-tablets-year/
    I know I would need a lot of convincing (better perf/$ than both AMD/NVidia) before I would buy an Intel GPU.

    Yeah, how'd that work out for them, lol. Not saying they can't, but they don't want to be seen as the the brand to Joe public (IMHO). I think maybe a very small price difference to break into the market, but nothing substantial. It would take a few reviews and maybe a generation or two before I would buy their cards.

    Fair enough, I e had my eye on the 5700 now that the AIB cards are out, but I honestly don't.play many games anymore, mostly just development work.

    Not saying it worked out, just that Intel is willing to undercut the other guy, when the shoe is on the other foot (they are the underdog).

    The underdog, pretty much has to offer better value than established players.

    Hard to say, AMD has no choice without the vast reserves, Intel doesn't have to undercut and can just not make as much to not appear as the value brand. They can and will bundle their machines and builds with their GPUs to make up for some #s, so it's not as mandatory for them to undercut as someone else just joining. I'm just saying they have options, time will tell what they feel is the best path forward.

    You just said that it would take generations of product and good reviews for you to buy one. Buyers need an incentive.

    Without that pricing incentive it's not getting off the ground.

    Yeah, Intel can actually leverage “economy of scale” in it’s real meaning. Especially since they are vertically integrated.

    What Dayaks said, they are vertically integrated, they don't have to do super awesome in the enthusiast market. They have the option. They don't need me to buy one, they want system integrators to include them in sales. They *could* come in at a loss or break even just to get a couple of sales (much less than their existing channels), or they could price it the same as everyone and get a couple of sales with high margins and as people gain confidence they will buy them. If they start low and then try to raise prices later it will put people off more than maintaining consistent pricing (which allows healthy margins).

    Edit:. My point was supposed to simply be they have options, and I have no clue which they will choose and can see some pro/con for both.

    The have those options on chips integrated into laptops. But not really bigger ones for enthusiast GPU cards.

    These will get reviews, and if reviews pan them, for poor value, then no one buys them, and no one is going to want them in their Alienware Gaming PC either.

    They need compelling product, or they shouldn't even bother.

    Compelling doesnt mean undercutting the competition, just not pricing above. My point was they could undercut or price accordingly, either one could work out for them. Also, it works for more than just laptops when most systems sold have Intel inside already if they can prepackage an Intel dGPU instesd of having to deal with multiple vendors (and no doubt Intel will give them deals to entice), it can save them time and money. This is where Intel can almost likely will sell cheaper to build market share. Enthusiast market, while useful for giving general positive views, isn't their biggest market.
    Again, just offer counter view, they could easily come in undercut and produce a lot of buzz to generate market penetration early, I just doubt they want to jump in and start a price war. They have want the margins high just like Nvidia and AMD. To come in and start a price war and destroy your own margins just seems silly to me, but I'm not a CEO and don't have as much inside knowledge either. They know their margins, prices and competition better than I do.

    I am not suggesting massive price drops to gut margins, and start a big price war.

    Instead I expect they will do what AMD does. Price slightly under NVidia, though I would expect Intel will have to price slightly under AMD and NViida.

    AMD has had very positive reviews of 5700 series, due in large part to the last minute price cuts. Without those, it would be a different story.

    I love the penis-measuring contests from fanboys who have zero personal or financial stake in either company. It’s like a personal victory when the brand of their choice wins a benchmark.

    Buying a 2060/2070S solely for RT is like buying a car because the speedometer says 180MPH on it. Sure, it's theoretically possible, but it'll take a while to reach it and the ride will be bumpy.

    2070 Super actually does RT at 1440p pretty well. Like BF4 ultra / rtx low should be around 70 fps at 1440p.

    It does better than you’d think in practice.

    The RT performance of the 2070S is kinda irrelevant at this point in terms of value vs the competition. Its rasterization performance and other features already justify its existence.

    RT is basically a bonus.
