Lisa Graff on 'The State of The Desktop Union'

Lisa Graff presents at a keynote earlier this year during the Game Developer Conference.

The company did hint at Skylake, the successor to Broadwell, but didn’t reveal any important technical information (Skylake, however, was old news as its existence had been long leaked already).

During the benchmarks displayed at Intel’s booth on the show floor, DirectX 12 provided a fairly serious performance gains over the previous version. Last week

One of probably most important people in the industry (that you never heard off) decided to add another semiconductor company to his resume. After ATI, AMD, GlobalFoundries and Intel, his next destination is San Diego.Jon Carvill’s last job at Intel was trying to get the message of Intel Media business division out, but numerous delays and corporate inability to achieve a deal with content providers lead to a decision that Intel decided to start shopping it around.
