Intel officially cancels its Xe-HP GPU lineup in favor of Xe-HPC and Xe-HPG GPUs

In a new shocking revelation, Intel’s Senior VP and General Manager of Intel Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group (AXG), Raja Koduri, has revealed on Twitter that the company doesn’t plan on commercializing the Xe-HP GPU lineup.

Koduri further explained why Intel has put a stop to its plans of developing their Xe-HP series of server GPUs to be released to the commercial market. The reason cited by the senior VP and General Manager from Intel is that the company has already evolved the original plans for their Xe-HP series into the HPC series, which is also known as Ponte Vecchio, and the Xe-HPG series, also known as the Intel Arc.

Intel flagship server GPU line, codename Arctic Sound, is currently being rumored for being “underdevelopment” with the resurgence of the Intel HPC section of the company. Raj Koduri also showcased the chips which will be housing the silicon at Intel Labs as the first high-performing Xe silicon chipset. But, the interesting fact here is that Xe-HPC and Xe-HPG dies are both developed by TSMC.

This year Intel has shifted its focus to administering and producing Ponte Vecchio for their Aurora Supercomputer and their client base. The chip manufacturer has also worked towards releasing the Xe-HPG Alchemist GPU family for the first quarter of next year.

However, with Intel entering the GPU market the question remains as to whether the company will be able to retain the competitiveness between themselves and rivals NVIDIA and AMD due to this refocusing and essentially pushing back their GPU lines.
