Intel has decided to restructure its graphics card business. As part of this process, Intel is splitting its AXG group into two structures. One will deal with gaming graphics cards, and the other with specialized solutions for the data center. At the same time, Raja Koduri, who headed AXG up to this point, will return to his former position as chief graphics architect of Intel.
Discrete graphics and accelerators are important growth engines for Intel. Now that our flagship products are in production, we are evolving our structure to accelerate and scale their impact and drive go-to-market strategies. Our Consumer Graphics Group will join our Client Computing Group and our Accelerator Teams will join our Data Center and AI Group
Thus, Intel will separate the two main areas related to the GPU, including teams of specialists in the respective main divisions. In particular, the consumer-facing portion of the Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics (AXG) business unit is part of the Intel Client Compute Group (CCG), while the data center and supercomputing GPU teams such as Ponte Vecchio and Rialto Bridge products will move to the Data Center and AI (DCAI) business unit. SoC developers will also get there.
As a result, Intel is restructuring its graphics direction to make it more efficient. Recall that the company denied rumors that it would abandon the graphics card market after the difficult launch of the first generation Arc.
