Bruised ego it appears, whether the original info was accurate or not is immaterial, no A780 is a fact. Rumors can be wrong, decisions can be changed, info can be invalid... You can't win them all

A770 performance will be hard to pin down against 3070 until release and even then we will need to include what driver version its tested on for the foreseeable future.
Should be a good time to upgrade or buy a used GPU ARC release and Crypto crash. Not great for Intel Margins but it looks like they will command the low-end as both Nvidia and AMD don't seem to care about sub $300 GPUs anymore.

How does the AI processing compare? Alongside the 512 SIMD EU, intel's Xe-HPG pairs an equal number of matrix units, right? Any idea what benefit they get from those relative to the 3070?
 
MLID is a little too toplofty, and this shows his age. A more appropriate response would have been a chin rub emoji with "Interesting as that's not what my reliable sources are claiming" People can conclude for themselves, instead of claiming he's right and Intel is being nefarious.

That said, his sources are reliable. Companies throw a lot up on a board that may or may not come to fruition, depending on time tables. Hundreds of ideas may just never happen because of lack of resources, cost, or time.
