When it comes to graphics cards, NVIDIA and AMD are the big names. But at the end of 2020, Intel launched the GP1 Iris Xe MAX, based on DG1. These cards can be found in notebooks that have the Tiger Lake processor, also from the brand.
But there are now strong reasons to believe that Intel will be preparing two gaming graphics cards for computers. And according to rumors, these GPUs could bring 512 computing units and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory.
Although there is still no great information about the models of Intel Xe graphics cards for computers, there is a strong possibility that the California manufacturer will take the matter to CES 2021, a technological event that will happen next week. And now there is a detail that further strengthens this hypothesis.
Intel may soon launch two gaming graphics cards
It is already known that Intel has plans for the development of graphics cards for computers. AND, recently, two new model entries for Intel Xe graphics cards were found.
As we can see in the following image, in addition to the GPUs appear to be based on DG2 and the indication of numbers 128 and 512.
These values could mean 128 and 512 computing units, which would correspond to something like 1024 color shader and 4090 color shader, respectively. In turn, Intel has also revealed that it intends to use up to 4 tiles in the same printer, and each tile supports up to 512 computing units.
In addition, it is also known that the DG2 graphics card can bring 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. However, much more information has not yet been revealed.
Thus, we can only wait for CES 2021 to find out if the manufacturer will then announce and launch these two long-awaited graphics cards for muno gaming. The event takes place from the 11th to the 14th of January.
