    Leaks show the potential of Intel DG2 desktop graphics cards

    A 448EU Xe-HPG model is just 5 per cent behind the GeForce RTX 3070 in benchmarking.

    I hope they put enough effort into drivers and optimisations as the GamersNexus review of the DG1 showed big issues with frame pacing that is going to need a lot of work to make the experience of gaming on Intel discrete GPUs not a horrible time

    Interesting, if this actually a first offering level of performance then this is going to be very aggressively biting the shins (not ankles) of AMD and Nvidia. Especially if this isn't the full fat die of which being 14% more EUs potentially being a linear performance increase would put it in the 6800 range of performance.

    Then we have driver optimisations that once they have it in the wild and getting telemetry and feedback from developers and users could net them more gains meaning this is a disgustingly good offering from team Blue.

    Awesome... lets have a price and performance war with quality inbound as well.

    I'd imagine a huge amount of time, budget and effort, will go towards figuring out how Intel can LOOK like they're are close to on par. They definitely have form for very misleading and dishonest practices.

    Personally, even IF they were better than Nvidia or AMD (which clearly isn't going to happen, but wanted to show my point of view), I'd avoid them. Intel are notorious for dropping support and expecting you to buy the newest line, before you finished unboxing.

    Exactly, even if they're better, never mind on par, I'll avoid them personally.

    They NEED to be much cheaper, to become established.

    perhaps it could be overclocked to reach above its competitors
    Now you've mentioned that, I can see K and non-K parts incoming so they can diversify the product stack a bit more.

    These are 3DMark Fire Strike score percentages posted by a random user of a Chinese forum, the 448EU SKU is a hypothetical part they used "perfect" scaling to create.

    Well Intel show us, that any big tech company can provide these GPU's, and that is what make it interesting, other companies has been in it as well, many of you or some of you may remember Matrox and 3Dfx.

    Not in the current climate they don't.

    Price competitive and available will do.

    Intel have shown that they can and will sell CPU's that are very price-competitive. Now if they do the same in the GPU market, they could be onto a winner.
    Doesn't matter who makes them - The best value option is the one I will always pick.
