Intel may be interested in AMD graphics

Intel and AMD have been rivals for decades but when it comes to money and mutual benefits there’s no room for negative feelings. So you should not be surprised when you hear that Intel and AMD are negotiating a deal, which may make AMD a supplier of graphics solutions and technologies to Intel.

The reason for this is that Intel wants to have access to AMD GPU technologies, which will allow the largest CPU maker in the world to significantly improve the performance of its GPUs that are integrated in modern Intel processors. Intel currently has such a deal with NVIDIA, which gives Intel quite a bit of money each quarter but the deal expires in January 2017 and there are no signs it will be renewed.

If Intel and AMD strike a deal, this will significantly improve AMD’s fortunes. The popular US company has been losing money in the past 1-2 years so this needs to change soon.
