I've seen this before.Actually, it looks like Intel is going to be late to the party. The crypto bubble is currently bursting, and it looks like Intel is going to be releasing their new cards right around the same time miners will be panic selling...
Period of stagnation--Price increases--Companies new to the party---Prices drop
Intel should have got their act before everyone but I guess that's how the world works. Going against/beyond what others are doing requires some extraordinary effort and work.
The biggest worry for me is that the company traditionally has been like a teenager that can't stick around to see something to completion. The amount of projects started and abandoned by them is numerous.
I hope they don't abandon it just because profits in the first 1-3 years isn't as good as they are expecting it to be. I am sure there are experienced guys in there that knows it takes few years for a new business category to have a chance to be successful.
I also believe in a few years we'll end up with a graphics duopoly again. AMD is too small of a player to die, but the duel between Intel/Nvidia will decide who's the second player.
