We have already heard the news about Intel working on its new discrete graphics card called the Xe-HPG line-up, and now we finally have the first-ever leaked information regarding the specifications of the line-up.
Three Twitter users, namely Harukaze, One Raichu, and Hougetsu, have tweeted a potential list of specifications regarding the Intel lineup of Xe gaming discrete graphics cards.
From the tweets, we can ascertain that the Xe-HPG DG2 GPU will be available in various core configurations. The rumor points out three variants starting with the highest-end 512 EU chip. The 512 EU SKU is followed by the 384 EU and the 128 EU variants.
Intel Xe-HPG DG2 512 EU Discrete Gaming Graphics Cards
The Xe-HPG based DG2 GPU SKU chips will come in various configurations, which will range from the full-fat chip to several cut-down variants. The top DG2 512 EU variant utilizes the full die with 4096 cores, 256-bit bus interface, and 16 GB GDDR6 memory (8 GB GDDR6 listed too).
Intel Xe-HPG DG2 384 EU Discrete Gaming Graphics Cards
According to leaked info, the Intel Xe-HPG DG2 384 GPU SKU is expected to comprise at least three variants. The full fat chip will feature 3072 cores, up to 12 GB GDDR6 memory (6 GB GDDR6 listed too), and a 192-bit bus interface.
The other two variants, the 256 EU and 192 EU variants, will comprise 2048 and 1536 cores. While both variants feature a 128-bit bus interface, the 256 EU SKU will come with up to 8 GB GDDR6 memory, while the 192 EU variant will stick with just 4 GB GDDR6 memory.
Intel Xe-HPG DG2 128 EU Discrete Gaming Graphics Cards
The Intel Xe-HPG DG2 128 EU is a full-fat SKU with 1024 cores, a 64-bit bus interface, and 4 GB GDDR6 memory. The cut-down variant will, however, come with 96 EUs or 768 cores and a 4 GB GDDR6 memory featured across a 64-bit bus interface. Reports indicate that it will be an entry-level desktop discrete GPU.
Since this is just the initial leak, we expect more information around the mid of 2021 related to Intel’s desktop discrete gaming graphics lineup, to be made public.
