Epic Games CEO: Intel Ruins Pc Gaming

In an interesting interview, Epic Games founder and CEO, Tim Sweeney, lashed at Intel accusing them of ruining pc gaming by selling integrated graphic chips that are incapable of running any decent games.

"PC gaming is in a weird position right now", said Tim Sweeney. "Now, 60% of PCs on the market don't have a workable graphics processor at all. All the Intel integrated graphics are still incapable of running any modern games. So you really have to buy a PC knowing that you're going to play games in order to avoid being stuck with integrated graphics. This is unfortunate, and this is one of main reasons behind the decline of the PC as a gaming platform. That really has endangered high-end PC game sales. In the past, if you bought a game, it would at least work. It might not have been a great experience, but it would always work."

"Intel's integrated graphics just don't work. I don't think they will ever work."

"They always say 'Oh, we know it has never worked before, but the next generation ...' It has always been the next generation. They go from one generation to the next one and to the next one. They're not faster now than they have been at any time in the past."
