Intel’s Raja Koduri teases their Xe-HPG (DG2) gaming graphics card

Intel’s getting ready to launch their first gaming-focused graphics card, a project that’s codenamed Xe-HPG and also known as DG2. Today, Intel’s Senior Vice President, Chief Architect, and GM for Intel Architecture, Raja Koduri, teased the company’s upcoming “DG2-512” graphics processor, highlighting that Intel’s new hardware is ready. That said, Intel has a lot of work to do before they can launch DG2. 

Intel’s Xe-HPG DG2-512 graphics processor features 512 Execution Units (EUs), which contain 8 shaders each. This gives Intel’s DG2-512 chi a total of 4096 shaders. This graphics chip is also said to support 16GB of GDDR6 memory over a 256-bit memory bus, like AMD’s RX 6800/6900 series. 

 
In his Tweet, Raja Koduri confirmed that Intel has a lot of driver work to complete before Intel can launch its DG2 series of graphics cards. At this time, we do not know when Intel plans to launch its Xe-HPG graphics cards to the consumer/DIY market. 

Performance-wise, Intel has not released any data about their upcoming DG2 series of graphics cards, though recent rumours have suggested that their gaming flagship could compete with Nvidia’s RTX 3070 graphics card.
