Many gamers are waiting for an Intel graphics card, which may eventually bring some confusion to the market. We know more and more about the DG2 model, and the latest leak looks surprisingly interesting.
The Blues reportedly create equipment that can challenge the GeForce RTX 3070 and its yet-to-come brother RTX 3070 Ti. For the first Intel product in this category, it is quite a good achievement.
The Moore’s Law Is Dead channel is responsible for the disclosure of the latest leaks about the Intel DG2 card, so it is worth approaching the data from a great distance. Nevertheless, at least to some extent, leaks look quite likely.
MLID revealed on his latest company that the Intel DG2 card is to be equipped with 512 EU, each of which would have 8 shaders (a total of 4096 cores). The GPU clock is to be 2.2 GHz, so the theoretical performance would be 18 TFLOPS.
MLID suggests a selection process of 6 nm for the production of the chip, and the use of 16 GB GDDR6, connected to the core 256-bit bus. It is worth noting that the material includes the first photos of the card with two power plugs: 8-pin and 6-pin.
With this configuration, the maximum power consumption would be 275W, although the blue ones were initially supposed to assume a TDP in the range of 225W – 250W.
With this configuration, Intel DG2 would achieve performance at the level of the yet unreleased GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, i.e. between the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080. MLID also mentioned the XeSS technique as a response to Nvidia’s DLSS.
In addition, the Xe-HPG chips themselves should be great for encoding and decoding various materials. The initial design of Intel’s graphics card is equipped with two fans and a rather standard, two-slot cooling system – so there should be no problems with creating proprietary cards by other manufacturers.
