Intel DG2 at CES 2022
Hardware Academy (硬件学堂) a popular content creator from Weibo claims that Intel is set to launch its DG2 family of GPUs at CES.
According to the entry on Weibo, the creator received reliable information that Intel DG2 discrete graphics will be released at CES 2022. While there might be mistakes in the translation, the entry undeniably mentions ‘launch’. This still leaves a possibility that Intel’s Xe-HPG based gaming processors might be announced a bit sooner, possibly this year.

The next CES could be filled with Alder Lake mobile announcements.
