More leaks for Intel’s DG2 graphics: 448 execution unit SKU incoming


Something to protect up for: Scorching off the heels of Intel’s modest DG1 discrete graphics card getting efficiency examined in the wild, depended on leaker TUM_APISAK has suggested the introduction of a brand new addition to Intel’s incoming DG2 line, a card slotting true into a second-from-top tier that’s able to duking it out with Nvidia’s RTX 3070 and AMD’s RX 6700 XT.

While the tweet is fairly short, it parts to the existence of but every other SKU inner Intel’s DG2 lineup, which became previously notion to most attention-grabbing consist of 5 items, and helps determined up the image of how Intel’s upcoming graphics product stack is going to shape up. This new GPU comes toting 448 execution items, becoming a member of a previously-established 384-EU SKU that is also cut down from the tip mannequin’s 512 EUs.

TUM_APISAK’s tweet places the 448 EU mannequin up against AMD’s RX 6700 XT and Nvidia’s RTX 3070, and claims that it comes out most attention-grabbing 8% in the assist of the worn and 5% in the assist of the latter. This roughly fits up with earlier files that the 512-EU SKU became attach of abode to be focused on the RTX 3070 Ti (which itself claims most attention-grabbing restricted positive components over the 3070), each and every DG2 GPUs bracketing the Nvidia card with the difference of 64 EUs both formula.

Because the 384-EU mannequin is getting 12 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, the brand new SKU will need to hang that same configuration at a minimal, which already fits the RX 6700 XT and beats each and every the RTX 3070 and 3070 Ti on that front — despite the indisputable truth that it be also worth noting that the RTX 3070 calm maintains the explicit VRAM bandwidth out of the three unless the brand new SKU makes consume of the same 256-bit memory bus of the supreme DG2 mannequin.

RX 6700 XT 100%

RTX 3070 97%

448EU @ 1.8 GHz 92%⬅️


128EU @ 1.9 GHz 100%⬅️

GTX 1650 88%

The alleged 1.8 GHz boost clock speeds also line up with earlier leaks in regards to the tip SKU, whereas on the underside terminate of the product stack the 128 EU mannequin is purported to boost your complete formula as a lot as 1.9 GHz — a large deal elevated than clock speeds claimed for the elevated 256-EU mannequin, but that’s to be expected as those covered mobile variations of the GPUs.

It also claims a 12% lead over Nvidia’s GTX 1650, despite the indisputable truth that with the incoming RTX 3050 Ti claiming efficiency same to the incumbent GTX 1660 Ti, it would hang disaster setting up itself in the entry-level market unless it be aggressively priced.

Rumored Intel Xe DG2 mobile specs

  SKU 1 SKU 2 SKU 3 SKU 4 SKU 5 SKU 6
EUs 512 448 384 256 196 128
Boost Clock (Cell) 1100 MHz ? 600 MHz 450 MHz ?
Turbo Clock (Cell) 1800 MHz ? 1800 MHz ? 1400 MHz ?
Turbo Clock (Desktop) ? 1800 MHz ? 1900 MHz
Memory Capability 16 GB 12 GB+ 12 GB 8 GB 4 GB
Memory Flee 16 Gbps
Memory Kind GDDR6
Bus Kind 256-bit ? 192-bit 128-bit 64-bit
Cell TDP (exc. memory) 100w ? 100 W ?

It be worth noting that no metric, benchmark or checking out suite became given for these efficiency numbers — and drivers will be correct form as famous to valid-world GPU efficiency as the silicon itself, so they ought to calm most attention-grabbing be fascinated with the same old pinch of salt.

Plus, all of the GPUs are rumored to be produced on TSMC’s 6 nm process, that methodology that ongoing high search files from for the foundry’s silicon might per chance presumably turn out to be a bottleneck for availability no topic how aggressively Intel prices its GPUs on free up.
