So, numerous rumors have been confirmed. The discrete gaming graphics card Intel DG2, also known as Xe-HPG, will be available in several versions with a different number of execution units, and the maximum number is 512.
That is, we are talking about a whole line of 3D maps. According to Intel documentation, at least three desktop models with 128, 384 and 512 computing units, that is, 1024, 3072 and 4096 cores, respectively, if the Xe architecture of the new generation does not differ from the current configuration of computing units.
As for mobile cards, there may be five of them, because the documentation contains five names: from SKU1 to SKU5, but without details. We can assume that we are talking about 96 computing units for the basic version and 512 units for the top version.
Of course, with such a difference in parameters, the GPUs will be completely different. There will obviously not be five of them, but at least there will be two: DG2-512EU will receive BGA2660 performance, and DG2-128 – BGA1379. In general, two GPUs are enough for Intel to create five different video cards.
It is also confirmed that the DG2 will receive GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 to 18 GHz. Intel mobile novelties will be designed for laptops with Tiger Lake-H and Alder Lake-P processors.
As already mentioned, from approximate calculations based on the statement of Raja Koduri, you can expect that the top solution of the Intel DG2 line will be characterized by performance at the level of GeForce RTX 3060 or RTX 3060 Ti.
