Appearance of the intriguing DG1 model in official regulatory body documentation reveals a limited amount of processing units within it. Is it just a tool Development Or evidence of the chip giant's commercial plans
This year is set to be a formative period in the world of graphic processing with Intel's anticipated entry into the race as a third player NVIDIA and-AMD - But is it possible that entering the storm we were hoping for would be a very careful and restrained march? The DG1 model no doubt adds another dimension of confusion to the story.
Intel chose to officially unveil the architectureXe Theirs a few months ago with Ponte Vecchio - a formidable processing unit for the HPC world and supercomputers that is supposed to run one of the most powerful systems in the entire world in 2021. From this it could be concluded that the company is first and foremost the ultimate performance crown, but now we are receiving evidence For other computing categories, priorities may also be different.
Documentation in the European-Asian Regulatory Organization EEC for a development kit with the model name DG1, which we have already heard on several occasions as the first home desktop video card based on the Xe architecture, describes a consolidation of only 96 processing units - which is not significantly greater than 64 Processing units and even 72 processing units that we have already seen in graphical cores built into the company's Ice Lake and Ice Generation processorsSkylake Respectively. Believing in the rumors, the near future will be even more confusing - with the next generation of mobile processors Tiger Lake offering up to 96 processing units in its built-in graphical core on some models, based on the same Gen.12 architecture that actually became the brand Xe.
So do Intel Do you plan to offer an external processing unit with hardware similar to that found in built-in graphical cores, or is this some innocent error? We have no answers at this time - but we are keeping our fingers crossed that the home supply will include at least models that could compete with the major competitor's intermediate products.
