Bottom line: In Intel’s latest earnings report, CEO Bob Swan confirmed that Xe GPU development has made good progress. The low-cost, low-power option, code-named DG1, is already being shipped and may be available for the holiday season. Intel’s high-performance gaming graphics chip is still in the early stages of testing, but it looks good so far.
After a 20 year hiatus, Intel is returning to the discrete graphics market. They have divided their GPUs, which are collectively marketed as Xe, into four categories: low-power (LP), high-performance gaming (HPG), high-performance (HP) and high-performance computing (HPC).
The DG1 is your current LP product. It’s about a couple of names; As a developer card, it was called the DG1 SDV and was called the Iris Xe Max and Iris Xe Graphics in laptops. But they are all the same: A 96-EU-GPU (Execution Unit, corresponds to eight shaders) based on the 10-nm SuperFin process from Intel. Leaks in various databases indicate that it was clocked at up to 1.5 GHz and paired with up to 3 GB of memory.
The architecture of the DG1 (LP) compared to a theoretical DG2 (HPG) model. Each blue square represents an execution unit. For more information on the capabilities of the Intel Xe architecture, see our Intel Xe Graphics Preview v2.0.
Swan commented that the DG1 “will be in systems from multiple OEMs later in Q4,” suggesting the card may only be available in pre-built desktops.
Swan also officially commented on the DG2 for the first time, describing it as an HPG product that “will bring our discrete graphics capabilities to the enthusiast segment”. According to some information Intel leaked in an accident, the DG2 models could have between 128 and 512 EUs, but it’s possible Intel has made changes since then.
