    The card is from 2009 and a failed idea that intel gave up on. You have to use pcie1 no express etc and it can’t play 1080p due to coding issues and drivers why intel gave up makes no sense the card was where AMD GPU where in 2014 in 2008-2009

    Actually Intel did make a graphics card back in the day called Intel 740 codenamed Auburn released back in 1998. So this wouldn't have been their first one.

    Basically an AMD variant card, as the big brains from AMD defected to Intel when they got screwed over during Vega development. We are getting Vega2 from Intel. It will be "okay".

    Linus is all lies when he says that this was the only/first Intel video card! The Intel i740 was their first discrete video card! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel740

  • Trey Rhodes

    This was not Intel's "first, dedicated graphics card." I owned Intel's first, dedicated graphics card in, what, 1998? It was an AGP abomination called the i740. Meant to compete with the 3DFX Voodoo cards of the day, it had, well, lackluster driver support at best. Actually, it had no official driver support. It was a dog. For your edification: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel740

    [Question @Linus Tech Tips
    ] Can you build a PC that unfortunately nobody does, PC for really fast clicking and switching and loading and browsing hard users and for the idea send it to me, please?

    The issue I am having with most of the PC is that they can't cope with my speed of work, what I mean. Example, when I am programming I need many times to copy paste names of variables, when I will click too fast (with my perfect and cheap dell cable mouse) it selects full line instead of just a variable name. Very frustrating when you then paste it somewhere I need to go back and copy again. Or loading, when I start my PC I need to open 5-10 apps straight away e.g. Chrome (with up to 130 tabs), IDE, git client, another IDE, text editor, music player, and few more. When I work on bigger project sometimes I need to have 4-5 IDEs open at the same time where many times I open them and close where I am changing something in core files and need restart. This takes a lot of time for me then standing and looking on the loading bars.

    So in the nutshell testing a setup which best fits for loading files, loading data into ram, scrolling, switching, browsing, loading websites many of everything. My current setup has 1-2 year ago very good setup:
    Samsung 970 EVO (500GB, M.2 2280)
    Intel Core i7-8700K (6, LGA 1151, 3.70GHz)
    Corsair Vengeance LPX (2x, 8GB, DDR4-3000, DIMM 288)
    be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 (16.28cm)
    ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-F GAMING (LGA 1151, Intel Z370, ATX)
    Phanteks Eclipse P400S Tempered Glass (Midi Tower, Insulated)
    Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut (11.10g, 12.50W/m K)
    GTX 950
    WIth little XMP and overclocked GPU and still it is too slow, sometimes terrible slow!

    If you could do that you will safe me life time!

    I had my own intel I-740 pci version. The card had an "AGP" interface as well as a standard "pci" variant. Basically Intel made gpus before but they were never truly successful and even some that were higher end had issues like one game would run great and another game using a simlar kind of direct 3d would be slow or have strange graphical bugs/issues much like newer onboard cards by Intel still do, e.g. hd-4000, hd-4600 and Evan later higher end onboard cards. Fortnite with an hd-4600 has glitched shadowing, flickering colours and other problems but yet there are other 3d games that may work good with that video chip so much like the I-740 did back in the day Intel has never made a truly powerful card that really works properly like AMD or NVIDIA. Intel CPUs are very powerful and stable I believe Intel has always made nice stable cpus and has still come a long way but in the gpu world they never really "got it"

    Some cards don't post when they are pcie v1 try an older motherboard such as an Intel "945GCNL" if the card is good it should post on that motherboard.
