Intel Xe DG1
At CES 2020 Intel demoed for the first time its discrete graphics based on Xe architecture. A graphics card known as DG1 was used for a short demo a laptop.
The device used for the demo is possibly a big giveaway where the DG1 will be used. It is not just a laptop, but an ultra-thin one. A similar graphics processor (in terms of specs) is expected to be infused into the Tiger Lake package, which was also demoed during the event.
The DG1 graphics were teased to deliver double the performance over current generation, which is Ice Lake.
Intel DG1 is currently expected to have 96 Execution Units, which should give around 768 shading units.
Preview of first Xe-based discrete GPU: Intel Vice President of Architecture for Graphics and Software Lisa Pearce provided insight into the progress on the new Intel Xe graphics architecture, which will provide huge performance gains in Tiger Lake, and previewed Intel’s first Xe-based discrete GPU, code-named “DG1.”
