Woof, much less exciting than the Ryzen 1000 series launch. Maybe next time, I wonder how many generations they'll be willing to make... I have a hard time believing this is making them any money.

2nd attempt and still a fail, 3rd time the charm perhaps? Intel has the resources, upper management should be fired, again.

Could be wrong but I imagine that it is a subproject of the Intel Xe mostly made/for the datacenter world a la Ponte Vecchio, the laptop/desktop GPU world high margin when it work being hard to just fully past on once you made a GPU for something else and I could be wrong but Intel can feel lot of uncertainty in the future if they are not able to sell fully integrated platform that include gpu/gpu like compute like the Apple/Amd/Nvidia will do and could be ready to eat a lot of time and money in thiis, I think the roadmap goes with a version 4 planned for 2024.

Kind of expected. I assumed they'd compete in the low end, but was hoping for something closer to the GTX 1660.

Performance doesn't matter, we just need more of these cards so Nvidia can't keep selling GT1030 and even GT730 cards for way more than they are worth. This clearly isn't aimed at anything other than very basic gaming, but having hardware support for modern video codecs is nice.

Performance for the A7 series could surprise people if it scales linearly with the amount of cores.

I'd be interested to see whether they can manage to bring that price down to $100-$120 and whether they are prepared to produce the numbers, potentially at a loss, to garner a foothold into the market.

I gathered from previous interviews that the goal for this generation was more in establishing themselves as a serious player rather than immediate profits. It seems to me that, with the current state of the drivers/dev support, the under-served true low-end segment of the market would be the best chance for accomplishing that.

How do the model numbers work on Intel cards? With AMD and Nvidia it seems to be
generation/speed/refresh version. But Intel's model numbers don't seem to line up with this logic.
I guess the 380 is their 3rd gen of GPU, but then the next one jumps straight to 7XX?

Model will work very much like the Core i3-i5-i7 naming convention, the 380 is the same generation as the 7xx, like the 12600k is the same generation as a 12900k

If it ever get popular we can expect the sku to be very similar

next will be 2300 gpu to 2700 (with maybe 2900 for the higher end and maybe 2100 on the lowest) and so on.

I was thinking of picking up the A 380 to use just for the AV1, I have an MSI x470 Gaming Plus CX board and thinking of running it with my RX 6700 as to do better recording.
