We have been hypothesising about Intel's graphics moves for a while now since the AMD/ATI buyout. There have been many rumours, including that Intel is looking for real graphics designers for high-level GPU discrete chip design. Well, we can now put these rumours to rest
with a little trip to Careerboard.com.
Intel are offering interviews for positions ranging from a Senior Software Graphic Developer, Graphics System Architect, Graphic Tech Market Director, and others. Though far from a cut-and-dry, definite plan, it certainly looks like the company is beefing up its graphics core, and looking for some hefty people to do it with.
This is not long after Intel acquired the cast-offs
from Creative Labs' 3d Labs, a group of very talented engineers who designed the bulk of the OpenGL 2.0 specs. It looks like we might actually have a new contender in high-level graphics...
