Intel DG1 Discrete Graphics Line First Exposure: Similar to Nuclear Display?

Intel has announced its first consumer-grade discrete graphics card, codenamed DG1, based on the new Xe architecture, and Tiger Lake, the next generation of mobile platform, which will be launched later this year, will also integrate the Xe architecture for the first time. Intel has no performance data, although it has publicly demonstrated the DG1 solo game. Now in the 3DMark database, tiger Lake-U core, DG1 unique, the first time to see Intel’s unique performance data.

The test equipment is two Tiger Lake-U sample notebook, both 4 core 8 threads, U frequency is only 1.2GHz and no detection of turbo, wherein the core display with 8GB LPDDR4 memory, west number SN720 256GB hard drive, unique with 16GB DDR4 memory, Intel 512GB hard drive.

The test items were only 3DMark, the core display and the unique graph score were 12728, 13143, respectively, and the single-show was only 3.3%, while in the two graphics test links, the single-show was only 1.2%, 5.9%, and the total score was only 1.6%.

Intel in the independent graphics market has little accumulation, and after so many years of return, coupled with the performance of graphics card performance is very dependent on drive optimization, so at this stage Intel drive team development and optimization tasks are undoubtedly extremely heavy, but even in the initial stage, unique, It’s hard to understand how the performance differences are so small.

Intel DG1 unique current specifications also have no clue, but must be higher than The Tiger Lake integrated nuclear display, performance must be significantly ahead of the right, otherwise what is the point?

In addition, Intel’s DG2 discrete graphics card for the mid- to high-end consumer market is said to have been postponed until 2022 and is to be outsourced to TSMC 7nm.
