The Blue team is quite busy to refine its mobile chips and its new Xe graphics embedded onto it to tackle AMD’s Ryzen 4000 processors. In the meantime, they seem to be refining their embedded Intel HD graphics as well.
Finally, we have spotted the new Intel Gen12 HD graphics benchmark, which is supposed to be featured on the Ice Lake-based Whitley server platform. This is an upcoming server CPU series from Intel, which seems to have decent integrated graphics.
As we see in the Geekbench OpenCL benchmark, the Intel Gen12 HD Graphics NEO seems to have a decent score of 25475 points, and this is because two server CPUs are running together. As we see, the upcoming Ice Lake-SP processors are running on Ubuntu with 48 cores and 96 threads, meaning each server CPU having 24 cores and 48 threads, paired with 128GB RAM.
That’s why we see the Intel Gen12 HD Graphics NEO with 512 Compute Units, 1.15GHz max frequency, and about 6.36GB VRAM. The new Ice Lake-based Intel Whitley server platform seems to be good enough on basic graphics requirements, whereas we have no idea about the CPU bound performance as of now.
Having appeared on the benchmarks does prove the reality of the upcoming server platform from Intel and we can expect a launch sometime in 2021.
