    Intel brings discrete Xe GPUs to mainstream and business PCs

    Meanwhile, Raja Koduri announces that the beefy Xe HPC GPU is "ready for power on".

    Surely it will perform about the same as the iGPU in the mobile Intel Tiger Lake.
    Less EU at 80 vs 96 for the full mobile but a bit faster clock and it has a full 28W to itself.
    At most around MX450 performance so below a 5500M or GT 1030.

    I laughed at this "offer a compelling upgrade to existing options in the market segment". Nice joke indeed.

    As kompukare said, it's going up against the likes of a GT 1030\AMD equivalent, which is not known for speed

    That cooler looks terrible. Either go for a basic functional design or a proper aesthetic one. Don't put a cheapo 3D printed / painted sewer pipe plastic thing on.

    They can put what they want on it. From what I was reading earlier, these GPUs require a special BIOS and are therefore Intel CPU only, so I'm out

    Really, I'm staggered that they managed to make a GPU that doesn't obey the decades old standards of how a GPU behaves.

    Re: Intel brings discrete Xe GPUs to mainstream and business PCs

    like the iGPUs in the Tiger Lake family, and are optimised for economy and efficiency
    economy and efficiency of what?

    Some intel level bullrubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish right there, might be a way to keep intel workstations more relevant. Threadripper and Epyc are way more atractive but having to plunk money for a quadro even if you'll only need the basic model because of display outputs might make the decision tend towards intel a bit more than it would otherwise. a bit fartetched but the only reason i can think of

    Is it just me that thinks the twin fan cooler looks like a fake graphics card from wish.

    Re: Intel brings discrete Xe GPUs to mainstream and business PCs

    Updates:

    1. A special BIOS on an Intel B460, H410, B365 or H310C motherboard is required to make use of this graphics card.
    2. Colourful denies being the party responsible for the blue and black dual fan graphics card pictured.

    1. wtf?
    2. Obviously, I mean I'd kind of put it down to someone on work experience, possibly sight impaired? Seriously though that's hopefully just a cheap prototype they threw together for concept sizing etc?

    I don't know anyone who buys proper workstations who would spend all that money on Xeon CPUs and ECC ram and then throw stability away on Intel graphics drivers.

    I'm more seeing this as a way for OEMs to get a "has DGPU" tick box filled, or for Intel to make a second sale on those cheap "F" processors with the igpu disabled.

    Asus..... Hey we've got some old heatsinks spare.
    Intel..... We'll throw a PCB on them and call them GPU's

    Intel..... Hey , we've made some GPU's
    Coloful... Great ,we've got some crappy plastic bits and fans you can have.

    Re: Intel brings discrete Xe GPUs to mainstream and business PCs

    Amusing to think those fans are going to be using a significant percentage of the 30W TDP of the chip.

    TBF, it might be that with a couple of big fans on it these things overclock like the clappers, we don't know yet
