When Lisa Graff, Intel VP for the Desktop Client Platforms Group, recently told KitGuru about her plans for 2014/2015, the focus was clearly on reinventing the desktop. As KitGuru reported a while back, there will be a resurgence on desktop for Intel going forward, which we believe will peak around 2017. To get a different take on this information, we caught up with Intel’s Gaming Guru, Richard Huddy who was just eyeing up the hotel’s perfectly rendered breakfast fruit when we spoke.
“It’s all about delivering credibility with the game developers”, Richard told us. “With CPU and GPU performance increasing dramatically over recent years, there has also been pressure to reduce power consumption, to create a much better mobile experience”. This drive toward better graphics on the go seems to have spurred a lot of innovation at Intel.
