VR Sports? It Can Be a Billion Dollar Business, Says Intel CEO (axios.com) 43

Ina Fried, reporting for Axios: Intel CEO Brian Krzanich told Axios on Thursday that he sees virtual reality not only changing the face of sports, but also potentially being a multi-billion-dollar business for the chip giant. "I think it can be a couple billion dollar business" he said in an interview after his appearance at Code Conference. "And the reason is this is a whole new feed... things like advertising, the ability to take that data and sell it... we're the only ones who we believe can produce this stuff."

    Gotta love prediction, especially when it's consistent with your worldview.

  • a billion dollar business

  • From the headline:

    we're the only ones who we believe can produce this stuff.

    I doubt it, I think Intel can make some OK processors but they really aren't great at innovating.

    They actually think that people buy their stuff because it says "Intel Inside".

    What really irks me though is when they show concepts and then wait for someone else to actually implement. I do give them credit with the Intel NUC though, that's one nice, cheap headless server for the home.

    • They actually think that people buy their stuff because it says "Intel Inside".

      Various sources put intel somewhere between the 6th and 14th most powerful brand... I think they're right.

  • the ability to take that data and sell it..

    Now if I am Intel's product instead of being Intel's customer, I hope they are going to give me their chips for free.

  • "And the reason is this is a whole new feed... things like advertising, the ability to take that data and sell it... we're the only ones who we believe can produce this stuff."

    Advertising is the worst part of sports. I hope Intel has nothing to do with VR if their only interest is selling eyeballs. Way to cheapen it.

    VR is created by artists to be consumed at internet scale, no gatekeepers required.
