The brand new Intel Xe DG1 graphics playing cards are being offered to OEMs together with ASUS and COLORFUL, with ASUS utilizing a super-plan fanless model that’s giving me some 3dfx Voodoo 3 3000 vibes — whereas the COLORFUL providing seems like an older MSI graphics card with its dual-fan design.
Each of the playing cards characteristic the Intel Xe DG1 GPU with 80 Execution Items, 4GB of LPDDR4X reminiscence on a 128-bit reminiscence bus with 68GB/sec of reminiscence bandwidth. It isn’t going to run Crysis or Cyberpunk 2077, that is for certain — but it surely’s additionally hardware-limited in the best way that it’s going to solely work on particular programs.
Intel’s new Xe DG1 discrete graphics playing cards have a 30W TDP, and include PCIe 4.zero x4 help. We do not learn about GPU clocks but, however the mobile-focused Intel Iris Xe MAX has GPU clocks of 1650MHz so I’d count on not less than 1700MHz out of the desktop-based Intel Xe DG1.
Our mates at LegitReviews report: “The Iris Xe discrete add-in card might be paired with ninth gen (Espresso Lake-S) and 10th gen (Comet Lake-S) Intel® Core™ desktop processors and Intel(R) B460, H410, B365, and H310C chipset-based motherboards and offered as a part of pre-built programs. These motherboards require a particular BIOS that helps Intel Iris Xe, so the playing cards will not be appropriate with different programs“.
