The world’s biggest maker of x86 central processing units and supporting chipsets has been eyeing the market of standalone graphics processors for some time and, according to rumours spread at Computex Taipei 2007 trade show, will finally enter it a little sooner than expected.

Several makers of graphics cards have already been contacted by Intel in regards of roll-out the company’s first discrete graphics solutions in years. DigiTimes web-site reports that if current plans go smoothly, the launch of the new products is projected to be “around early in the second quarter of 2008”. Not everything is yet clear with Intel’s product roadmap: so far the company has not provided its potential partners specifications of the forthcoming graphics processing units (GPUs). It is expected though that the company will “deliver a more complete roadmap and specifications” in the Q4 2007.
