In a new job recruitment video posted on Twitter, Intel graphic chief Raja Koduri talks about what's going on with GPU development at the chip giant. He says this is an opportunity for unleashing the discrete graphics from the constraints of integrated graphics, and compares Intel's IP portfolio to a very complex LEGO structure.
Raja starts off his part saying that Intel is starting off from zero in discrete graphics, but the Intel GPU team see this as an "opportunity for unleashing the discrete graphics from the constraints of integrated graphics".

Raja is an engineer at heart and is a kid in a candy store at Intel, where he adds that Intel IP portfolio at transistor, firmware and software levels is "incredible". Koduri continued, comparing the IP portfolio like a "very complex LEGO structure", he continued "this is what the world's best engineers we have access to all of the right LEGO blocks with this company". But it was the part where Raja said he wanted a future with photo-realistic immersive worlds, and the quick part of wanting to build games with "virtual worlds that are as large as this universe".

Lots of big plans and aspirations, it will be interesting to see whether this attempt will be more successful than Larrabee or the i740.
