Intel shows its cards in the medium and long term, and aims very high

Pat Gelsinger and top Intel executives discussed the strategy, and the company objectives, medium and long term during the last investor meeting held this year. In this event they gave an overview of the most important goals of the chip giant, and we can find all their keys collected on the official Intel website.

I am not going to elaborate a list point by point because you can already find it in the link that we have left you in the previous paragraph, but I am going to focus on highlighting some of the most important and most interesting keys. The first thing that caught my attention was “Project Endgame” a cloud gaming service that will compete directly with NVIDIA’s GeForce Now and Google’s Stadia. This service will allow playing demanding titles using servers with Intel Arc graphics cards. The company assured that it will always be accessible, which would imply high availability, without queues or waiting, and low latency. The latter is key to achieving an experience similar to what the player would have locally.

Why is Project Endgame so important? In my opinion, because it supposes the configuration that gaming in the cloud is a key business for the big hardware manufacturers, and because this allows Intel diversify its business units a little more. In theory, it will be available later this year.

As expected, Intel has also given details about Sapphire Rapids, its new generation of Xeon processors with integrated HBM memory, which promise to exceed Up to 2.8 times the performance of 3rd generation Xeons. Ponte Vecchio was another of the protagonists, a solution that falls within the category of graphics accelerators that promises to exceed the performance of competing solutions by up to 2.6 times.

Intel confirmed, taking advantage of the unique framework of this event, that the automotive sector will be increasingly relevant to the world of semiconductors, so much so that the revenue generated by chips for the automotive industry will double in 2030. For this reason, Intel Foundry Services (IFS) is forming a group focused on the automotive sector which will aim to offer a complete solution to automakers with three priorities: a high-performance, open computing core architecture; an automotive-grade manufacturing platform and enabling the transition to advanced technologies.

I left many things in the pipeline, but do not worry. As I said, you can learn about all the news that Intel has offered during its last investor meeting by following the link in the first paragraph.
