Quote: "When you say discrete cards do you mean they might put their graphics cores onto a PCI-E card?"

Basically yup. Intel announced a while back they were getting back into discreate GFX cards. They are shipping an updated GFX engine with some devices now (Laptop OEM stuff). This is known as DG1 (Discrete Graphics 1), although it's a discreate chip, rather than a card, aimed at Laptops.

DG2 is apparently the discrete card, and these are in alpha currently, and are supposedly due for launch later this year.

Even if DG2 is only mid range, say equivalent to a 3060 or maybe a 3070, if they can get them in stock, they'll likely sell simply due to nVidia and AMD not have much stock anywhere atm.!
