The discrete GPU market is about to get busy in 2020, as Intel is planning a triumphant return. To ensure its success, the company is now launching "The Odyssey" initiative which aims at involving gamers in the GPU development process. Intel is willing to listen to what end users have to say in order to create the best possible gaming GPUs.

Intel is planning to make a big comeback on the discrete GPU market and spice things up for Nvidia and AMD. It might just be pure coincidence, but Intel apparently chose to threaten the green and red teams at this particular time, as both companies are trying to get back on their feet after the dramatic crypto mining decline from last year. Sure, Intel may not strike before 2020, so Nvidia and AMD still have some time to mount up some defenses. However, Intel really wants to do things right by gaming enthusiasts and provide the best possible GPU through a new initiative called “The Odyssey.”

With the introduction of “The Odyssey” program, Intel is hoping to facilitate a streamlined communication channel between its discrete GPU developers and the gaming community in order to better suit the upcoming products to what users need. Intel mentions that the new initiative is “committed to listening to the community, and in return [users] will get closer to the inner workings of visual technology development than ever before.”

To hype things up, Intel is also planning special events and promotions: “You’ll hear the latest reports first and you’ll have access to some amazing offers and exclusive giveaways. You also have the opportunity to receive the Intel Gaming Access newsletter which gives gamers a VIP pass to killer deals and freebies, preferred beta access, the latest gaming news, and more.” Intel will be holding these special events all around the world, including locations such as Paris, San Francisco and Taipei.

Intel is also inviting users who sign-up for ‘The Odyssey” program to follow them on Twitter and Instagram, where they can find neat pictures including fan-made renders of Intel's upcoming GPUs.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
