    Intel? GPU?

    I'm never touching another Intel GPU if I have choice, ever again.

      I've said it before, and I will say it again. The onboard gfx of the i7-6700K were actually pretty good.

      Obviously not discrete GPU levels of good, but good enough as a stopgap. It were capable of running Elite Dangerous at reasonable frame rates.

      Of course the laptop graphics chips have mostly been awful; but what do you expect for machines manufactured to run Outlook and Word and little else.

      I've gone AMD since then as Intel's technical solution to improving performance has mostly gone the road of throwing more kilowatts at the same silicon.

      I may never buy an ARC; but it's existence and hopefully manufacture in meaningful numbers does provide desperately needed competition to the duopoly.
