While Intel spent nearly all of its stage time at GDC 2019 announcing new software and 9th Generation mobile processors, the corporate additionally gave us a small tease of what its graphics card may appear to be.
At the very begin of its GDC 2019 keynote, Intel designer and artist Christiano Siquera shared the very first shroud design for an Intel Graphics Card. This design you see beneath was apparently revealed again in December 2018 and whereas it appears like all previous, generic mini GPU, Team Blue has since moved onto a brand new design.
On the following slide above is Intel’s new shroud design with an aesthetic similar to the corporate’s current Intel Optane SSDs. Between the flared, diagonal traces and the angular look, this graphics card principally appears like a shorter, bulkier model of the Intel Optane SSD 905P.
Intel’s first graphics card additionally appears destined to make the most of a single fan, blower-style cooler based mostly on these pictures. Unfortunately, there’s little else to invest on apart from these observations.
As these are simply renders and Siquera famous that he’s engaged on 9 further designs, so this doubtless received’t be the ultimate type of Intel’s future graphics card.
