Intel xe multi gpu
Ever since Intel released the Xe graphics card, the industry has been watching Intel's position in the graphics market.
People have always wondered if Intel has the ability to challenge AMD and Nvidia. However, it seems that now we can only get discrete moving Xe graphics. It seems that Intel is not ready to compete, especially AMD has the Big Navi RDNA 2 GPU, and Nvidia is about to launch the Ampere card.
Obviously, this is not to say that Xe cards can't really compete with the graphics card giants in the future. In any case, we will definitely be very attentive.
Where is Intel's Xe? Well, we will show you everything we know so far about Intel’s plans in the graphics market.
Since this year is a turbulent year for everyone, it is difficult to estimate the release date. Things can always be delayed, so we cannot be 100% sure when we will see the Xe card.
However, Intel stated that their goal is to release in the late summer/early fall of 2020. When they saw Intel’s Raja Koduri license plate, Intel fans with wide-eyed eyes were excited. Koduri posted a picture of the "THINKXE" board, which happens to expire in June 2020. Can we see the release of Xe this month? Only time will give the answer.
is likely to be part of Tiger Lake's mobile CPU announcement, because these laptops are already expected to be equipped with Xe GPUs. So it looks like we will be getting two major Intel releases at the same time.
As far as we know, Intel appears to divide the Xe architecture into three parts. There is XeLP for entry-level gaming, XeHP for professionals and enthusiasts, and XeHPC for corporate clients.
It appears that these GPUs will be based on roughly the same architecture as the Ice Lake Gen 11 graphics.
From the benchmark data, we see that the Intel DG1 GPU has 96 Execution Units (UE) and scores 5,538 points in the data Fire Strike by 3DMark. This places the performance of DG1 between Nvidia's GeForce GTX 750 Ti score of 5184 and AMD's Radeon RX 460 score of 5924. Compared with other mobile GPUs on the market today, these numbers seem a bit disappointing. This also seems to reflect the results we saw at CES 2020 earlier this year. There, the Intel DG1 discrete graphics card runs Warframe at 1080p resolution, which looks like a large-scale dial-up setup.
Generally speaking, people will not be impressed. However, it is still too early, who can determine how they will perform after launch.
With that said, the new Intel Tiger Lake CPU benchmark shows that the Xe GPU will help improve overall performance. The recent leak may mean that Intel's Xe graphics card performance will be on par with the new AMD Ryzen 4000 series of APUs.
Of course, since there is little information on Intel Xe cards and no release date To speak of, it is difficult to know the price of these cards. Since they will not be offered for sale as a separate card, this makes exercise difficult.
Since Intel Xe graphics cards may not be able to match AMD and Nvidia products, Intel may try to compete on price. This is a problem that Intel has been working hard to solve, especially when compared to AMD. Therefore, if this is Intel’s strategy for launching Xe graphics, it will be an interesting development.
But the price we can guess. If we compare Intel Xe with low-end graphics cards such as Nvidia GTX 1650, its price may be between US$150 and US$200. If Xe competes with mid-range cards, the price range may be between US$300 and US$400. If Intel tries to promote Xe as a high-end card, the price will reach $1,000 or more. But we think this is unlikely at the moment and will make it more difficult for Intel to compete.
As little is known about Intel Xe graphics cards, we will make sure to keep an eye on any new information. If you are interested in learning more about Intel Xe, be sure to check out the update we saw here.
