Intel DG2 ‘right around the corner’
Intel’s Game Developer Relations Engineer shared a job offer for a similar position at Intel. Things are about to get exciting, he says, as Intel’s first modern discrete GPU for gaming is ‘right around the corner’.
It is far from official confirmation on the DG2 launch date, but it is actually the latest from Intel on the new GPU family. Pete Brubaker tweeted that Intel is now looking for Senior Game Developer Relations Engineer. The fact that Intel is now actively looking for people with experience in working with game developers just proves that DG2 will open new gaming opportunities for Intel. After all, DG2 will finally enable mid-range to high-end gaming exclusively on Intel hardware, something that was never possible before.

Intel DG2 will launch for both mobile and desktop markets, however, it is unclear if we should expect both series to appear at the same time. While Intel did repeatedly confirm that DG2 is a 2021 product, it was never confirmed whether that applies to desktop or mobile variants.
The DG2 family features as many as five SKUs, equipped with 96 to 512 Execution Units. The top-tier 512EU model is now rumored to compete with NVIDIA’s upcoming RTX 3070 Ti graphics, so it is definitely a high-end gaming GPU. The mid-range segment will be occupied by 384 and 256 EU DG2 variants. These DG2 configurations are to be equipped with up to 16GB of GDDR6 memory. With all that in mind, we should see Intel actively competing in the 1080p and 1440p gaming segments.
