New discrete GPU will
double current Ice Lake performance
Intel has unveiled its upcoming Xe discrete graphics chip
that will be arriving in later 2020, with limited details.
At Intel’s CES 2020 keynote, they showed off their graphics
chip and how it’s going to be implemented.
They started with a standalone DG1 “software development
vehicle” card that will allow for developers to optimize apps for the new
It appears that Intel’s discrete graphics chips will be
install together with the CPUs on a single package. At this time, it’s not
clear whether Xe will replace, or co-exist with Iris integrated graphics.
Intel confirmed that the Xe will be available in three
tiers: the Xe-LP which is low power and intended for gaming machines, Xe-HP
which features high performance and is for content creators, and Xe-HPC for
high performance computing for data centers and supercomputing.
It’s been confirmed that Xe will arrive with Tiger Lake
10-nanometer CPUs, sometime later this year, and that these chips will double
graphics performance over the current Ice Lake generation.
Intel promises “double digit” CPU performance increases
with Tiger Lake and “massive” AI improvements.
Unfortunately, no additional performance data has been released at this time.
