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 graphics system.

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.
