Intel desktop class graphics cards based on the Xe architecture will be unveiled and then released in the not-too-distant future. One of the separate Xe graphics card models recently in the Geek Bench benchmark tests (Geekbench) has appeared to get acquainted with important technical specifications. The technical specifications show that we are on the lower model of Intel Xe desktop graphics cards.
Intel has not yet introduced the graphics card; But its presence in the benchmarks shows that we are close to its release date. Some analysts say Intel may want to unveil its graphics card at CES 2021.
According to information published in the Geek Bench database, the new Intel Xe series graphics card has 128 computing units (CU), 1,024 cores, 3 GB of graphics memory (VRAM) and a clock speed of 1.4 GHz. First time a Twitter user with a username [email protected] Benchmark viewed Intel graphics card.
The benchmark shows that the Intel Xe graphics card has been tested on a system equipped with a ninth-generation Core series processor. Digital Media Trends announces the name of the chip as Intel Core i5-9600K and announces the presence of 16 GB of RAM in the reference system.
The technical specifications of the Intel graphics card are in line with the specifications previously published in the SiSoftware benchmark database. A few months ago, SiSoftware announced that Intel’s twelfth-generation desktop GPU had clock speeds and a number of computing and core units similar to the details announced in Geek Bench. The new Intel graphics card will probably belong to the DG2 series.
At this time, it is not clear what the ultimate graphics card will do with the right drivers and software support. The score of the mentioned graphics card is 9,311. The Intel Iris Xe Max GPU, which was introduced for laptops and was introduced some time ago with four gigabytes of memory, scored 15,000 in the same test.
We expect the Intel desktop class graphics card to outperform the laptop graphics card when it launches; Especially considering the fact that the Iris Xe Max is produced with only 96 executives and 768 cores.
Intel’s new desktop graphics architecture is said to be different from the Iris Xe Max Xe-LP architecture because the LP architecture supports a maximum of 96 executables. The graphics card seen in Geek Bench is probably a prototype of cards based on the more advanced Xe-HP or Xe-HPG architectures.
The Xe-HP architecture is rumored to be flagship for the mainstream and gaming computing market, supporting up to 512 executives and coming with GDDR6 memory. The new Intel graphics card can make it a competitor to new AMD and Nvidia products, such as the GeForce RTX 3070. Nvidia’s more powerful graphics cards, such as the RTX 3080, use the more advanced GDDR6X memory standard.
The Xe-HPG is expected to be part of Intel’s second generation of separate graphics cards, known as the DG2. The Xe-LP GPU on the Tiger Lake series chip for laptops belongs to the DG1 family.
There are only a few weeks left until the start of CES; So we do not have to wait long to understand the details of Intel’s plans in more detail. Intel’s new graphics card has big competitors to succeed in the market, the latest of which is the Apple M1 chip.
