I see this as a good move for Intel and their desire to become a major force in graphics.
So in 20 years intel couldnt get the talent or the money to do a proper gpu? Its the IP they dont have. So unless either nvidia (we know they havent) or amd sells them a rich IP license they wont be able to produce a gpu imo.
But my take is AMD is or soon will give them enough IP to work from. Its why Raja went to intel he has experience with amd ip.
Question is what did amd get for this. I mean in a normal high tech world non compete contracts would prevent your top gpu guy from going to work for the competition...
