    Depends on where the money is and if the check clears.

    And before you know it, we'll have the third option everyone so much wants. Yeah, I hate gnusmas.

    I'd be up for Samsung to buyout AMD if it means they'll provide the funds necessary for decent laptop GPUs from the Reds once again.

    I'd like Intel to get into the dedicated GPU business properly too, what with their advanced process tech and bucket loads of R&D money.

    More competition the merrier!

    Looks like Intel is content with their CPU dominance for now though, whilst merely nibbling away gradually at the low-end discrete GPU market.

    Yeah Intel has some pretty decent tech; the smoke and stuff from Grid 2 is pretty nice... though Maxwell's render tech and bandwidth optimizations are nothing to sneeze at. I'd not mind if Intel started making dGPUs... but we all know it'll all be integrated only =D

    Wonder when they will get over the Larrabee failure, though read their integrated do use some of the R&D from Larabee.

    Larrabee turned into Xeon Phi.

    I've never heard about their Larrabee failure before. I just hate integrated stuff.

    Will be interesting if AMD decides to release a desktop variant of their HPC APU. That thing is supposed to be a 16 core monster and have a R9 400 series GPU in it along with HBM 2, though it's a 200-300W monster but it will probably destroy anything else for VR.

    Larabee was going to be Intel entry into dGPU, with the first x86 GPU. Huge hype, they even bought out a gaming studio, Project Offset to showcase this game, that was going to be the tech demo. But nothing came of it, just fizzled. No explosion, just went away without a word, gone.

    Was supposed to be game changer GPGPU capable of ray tracing, revolutionizing graphics.
