The first Intel graphics cards based on Xe architecture are expected in 2020. The first testing phase for GPUs has been completed, while Intel’s latest financial reporting highlights that it is a significant achievement for the company, reports Guru3D.
Now in the GFXBench database is showcased the device labeled “Graphics gfx-driver-user-feature_dg1_poweron-27723 DCH ReleaseInternal“. The “dg1” label is an abbreviation for Discrete Graphics 1 and has been related to Intel Xe architecture for some time now.
No concrete benchmarking tests have been performed (or they are simply hidden), but this is certainly a testament to the functionality of the device’s GPU and driver.
Rumors point to 512 EU (execution units) for the XE graphics card, which should deliver similar performance to the Geforce RTX 2080. Intel Xe graphics cards are expected to be available non later than mid-2020.
