At CES 2020, Intel first demonstrated for the first time a consumer-grade discrete graphics card coded DG1, but not a separate PCIe expansion card pattern, but directly integrated into the notebook. According to official accounts, Intel DG1 is its first discrete graphics product for consumer-grade platforms, based on a new Xe GPU architecture, integrated with a powerful media and display engine designed for power optimization platforms (i.e., energy efficiency ratios) and optimized for gaming and content creation.
On-site, Intel demonstrated a DG-equipped notebook running Destiny 2, a game with high hardware requirements that still runs smoothly enough, but the exact resolution, picture quality settings and running frame rate are not announced.
According to previous news, Intel DG1 is expected to integrate 96 execution units, a total of 768 streaming processors, with its own stand-alone memory, and then work with processors like Tiger Lake-U to work together in a way similar to Kaby Lake-G.
The Intel DG1 stand-alone notebook will be available later this year.
In addition, Intel has another stand-alone graphics architecture for high-performance computing, the product code Ponte Vecchio, 7nm process manufacturing, integrated EMIB, 3D Foveros packaging technology, support for HBM high bandwidth memory, CCIX high-speed interconnection protocol, will be used for the next generation of u.S. supercomputers” Aurora, a six-way parallel, with the code name Sapphire Rapids, will be able to expand the future.
