Intel has maintained a high degree of confidentiality since the announcement of the Xe Solo Project. Previously, the company gained a significant share of the market through its “core graphics card” integrated with the CPU. Looking ahead, Intel also plans to appeal to entry-level games or enthusiasts with its first dedicated graphics processing unit (DG1). Interestingly, this has been strongly implied in the recent leak edgy documents of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC).

Intel has confirmed that its first unique show will be built on the Xe architecture. Raja Koduri, who was Radeon’s chief architect at AMD, will lead the development of new products.
It is said that one of the features of the Xe architecture is its ability to scale to mobile and desktop platforms. This means that Instead of redeveloping another architecture specifically for mobile GPUs, Intel will balance both desktop and mobile platforms.
In the leaked EEC document, Intel Xe DG 1 is known to have 96 execution units (EU) and is expected to be officially announced soon.
In fact, Chris Pirillo, Intel’s “chief community advocate,” confirmed the incident in a tweet. The product, which is still in the experimental stage, has been denied after a number of negative rumors surfaced on the internet that it was difficult and possibly even cut off.
Interestingly, there are reports that Intel will continue to roll out DG2. For this reason, the “DG” series is probably named in a temporary placeholder, and the finished product is likely to change to a different name.
If Intel retains the same design principles for the DG1 as its own mobile HD/UHD Graphics core graphics card, consumers are expected to have 96 x 8 x 768 coloring units.
Given Intel’s first unique positioning entry level, it is unlikely to have 96 x 16 x 1536 coloring units. In addition, the Intel Tiger Lake chip is said to have 96 execution units (based on Gen12 Xe Graphics).

Recently, it was reported that the thermal design power consumption of the 25W DG1 GPU, with a 25% increase in performance over the Tiger Lake chip, is expected to be attractively priced by Intel to help it quickly capture the entry-level market.
