Intel is working on its next generation graphics card named DG1. After receiving plenty of speculations and rumors, the company has finally confirmed the first Discrete GPU i.e. Intel DG1 by Intel. The new Intel DG1 Graphic Card will have 96 EUs.
If the new Graphic Card follows the same Tiger Lake than each EU will be featuring 8 shared units so total 768 Shared Units per DG1. Apparently, the new Intel DG1 is essentially discrete Tiger Lake graphics that will come with 96 EUs.
We got to know about the Intel’s upcoming graphic card from the ECC filing. The information was also posted on Twitter along with all the news that we are following in this article. The register entry contains the development kit. In their official information, they have given the name to the development kit as ‘DG1 External FRD1 96EU Accessory Kit’.
The new DG1 is Intel’s first graphic card based on the Xe LP architecture. And as noted above, this will contains 96 EUs with 768 Shader units. The leaked codenames of the Intel’s DH1 GPU are listed below:
- DG1 External FRD1 96EU Accessory Kit (Alpha) Development Kit (DGD12KEF3A)
- Discrete Graphics 96EU DG1 8+2 Windows External PROD HOST SDP (Alpha) (DGD12SEH4A)
- Discrete Graphics 96EU DG1 6+2 Windows External PROD HOST SDP (Alpha) (DGD12SEH3A)
ECC filing is the first step before the actual product launch where the company offers a prototype of what they are working on and what they will be launched in the near future. This will take around 5 to 6 months to be released for the public in the technology market.
If we follow the track record of the ECC filing, then we will get to see the new Intel’s DG1GPU in the coming June or July month in the next year i.e. 2020.
This new Chip can make Intel’s name as a reliable Graphic Card manufacturer if they keep the pricing of the new chip competitive. Of course, it will offer much better performance than the existing chips and we will get to know more about the new Graphic Card’s performance and its compatibility in the coming weeks.
