Intel has revealed today its DG1 design prototype.
Intel Xe DG1 ‘Software Development Vehicle’
Apparently Intel still had something to show at CES 2020 and that thing was a DG1 prototype. It’s not really a final product, not really an engineering prototype, it’s a design that will ship to ISV worldwide for software optimization for the Xe architecture.
The Xe graphics will be divided into three main groups: Xe-LP, Xe-HP, and Xe-HPC. The DG1 is more than likely Xe-LP design, as we have already seen various leaks referring to 96 Execution Units.
The photos and renders reveal the PCIe x16 interface (presumably 4.0) and no visible power connectors. This means that the DG1 won’t draw more than 75W.
