As the next generation of Intel discrete GPUs approaches, several rumors are circulating about their product line and timing. In the latest speculation, IT Home has compiled a report citing anonymous sources, claiming that Intel has only two DG2 desktop graphics cards for gamers; Cards that are probably not the best examples on the market.
The Arc Alchemist or DG2 family will include two separate graphics cards, the report said; But it is interesting to note that leaked information from Intel drivers indicates that this family may include 32 different configurations. However, it seems that the blue team will initially unveil and release two graphics cards.
With 512 executables (EU) and 16GB of GDDR6 memory, Intel’s most powerful graphics card reportedly performs similarly to Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070/3070 Ti graphics cards, and another with 384 executables and 12GB of DDR6 memory. GeForce RTX 3060/3060 Ti brings.
The report comes as Intel initially planned to launch a new generation of discrete GPUs in January this year, and even delivered samples of its GPUs to various brands. However, the report notes that Intel has delayed the release of the graphics cards until March 2022.
The delay appears to be helping Intel avoid direct competition with Nvidia’s new GPUs in January; But it does allow Intel to cede a large portion of its early-year market to its two longtime rivals, Nvidia and Imedi.
Going beyond desktop-class graphics cards, Intel is expected to offer a base-level discrete mobile GPU with 128 executables for notebooks, which is expected to be close to Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2050. Of course, the veracity of this claim is still in doubt; Because a reliable benchmark for the GPU has not been released yet.
In general, we suggest that the release of additional information from credible sources be considered a rumor. Intel does not, of course, comment on rumors or unofficial information; But the global chip giant is expected to release information about DG2 standalone graphics chips in the coming weeks.
