Intel has been dominating the CPU market for a long time, and now at CES 2020, the company has announced its first discrete GPU codenamed “DG1,” marking a big step forward for Intel’s computing objectives.
Although the chipmaker didn’t reveal any details about its upcoming DG1 GPU, Intel did showcase a live demo of Destiny 2 running on the GPU. As the company said, the DG1 is based on the Xe architecture, the same graphics architecture that will power Intel’s integrated graphics on the upcoming 10nm Tiger Lake chips that it also previewed at its CES keynote.
Intel is planning to integrate this platform into its upcoming Tiger Lake processors that will come out later this year. It has been a long pain for Intel related to the discrete graphics for laptops. And so, the company in 2018 teamed up with its rival chipmaker AMD to create a hybrid line of Core i5 chips with onboard AMD GPUs.
As of now, Intel didn’t mention anything regarding when to expect to see devices powered by the DG1. However, the company did say that its first Tiger Lake chips with integrated Xe graphics are expected to ship later this year, with chips set to arrive at OEMs this summer.
