    Intel shares Xe DG1 product photos and slides

    The pictures show a stylish sub-75W compact single-fan dual-slot graphics card.

    Re: Intel shares Xe DG1 product photos and slides

    Can only see this being a plug-in solution for older CPUs running iGPUs that have a PCI-E slot or competing in the HTPC market if it was SFF which it isn't. Unless it's priced extremely keenly can only see it competing with GTx<40 or equivalent AMD cards, not the GTXxx>50 or equivalent gaming cards.

    Or could it be a bundled option with newer Intel CPUs that forego iGPUs in favour of a choice?

    i feel a lot of Dell's coming with Intel (bing bing, bing bong) Inside adverts building......

    Re: Intel shares Xe DG1 product photos and slides

    Well it certainly looks nice, and somewhat different to the typical GPU... More of this sort of thing, perhaps?

    low power consumer card? Any money on the chip just being a Core i with bad CPU cores?

    You mean forcing them to optimise only for your stuff and no one else's?

    Looks like it could provide good competition for Nvidia's GT 1030

    Where's this exclusivity coming from? Developers are going to need to get to grips with a new architecture. Then when they do release a more powerful chip it won't flop on release day...or at least not because of poor optimization.

    lol, yeah I had that thought too. A CPU chip has memory interface, PCIe lanes, cache and GPU cores. Would be better if the ram interface was capable of properly using GDDR ram, but not a deal breaker. Just needs some logic to disable the CPU and turn some of the PCIe lanes around from master to slave. An expensive way to make a GPU, but quite a cheap way to make prototypes.

    The thing is, if this isn't any better than an IGP then I don't see what games devs really gain vs optimising for the IGP that this is based on.

    Driver writers need actual finished hardware, with the proper PCI codes and that stuff will be done in house at Intel.

    I'm struggling to see the point here, unless their scaling allows decent bridgeless SLI which seems unlikely. I wonder if this is just about expectation management, to talk down those who are hoping for a 3080ti killer on day one.


    Edit: Why would such a short low power card require a backplate?

    They may be baby steps but they are making steps, not the grand entrance everyone wanted but it's a start, get an iGPU replacement working and stable, then move onto bigger things. Perhaps we will see more mid range to high end parts in a couple of years.

    Apparently it is primarily a mobile GPU, the sample card isn't likely to make it into actual production. So it'll be a second chip.
