Thanks to fresh leaks from the YouTuber Moore's Law is Dead; we now have fresh information regarding Intel's planned Xe-HPG graphics card, including images of an alleged engineering sample. 

Based on the information leaked, Intel's Xe-HPG engineering samples offer performance levels between Nvidia's RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 graphics cards, delivering performance levels that are akin to a hypothetical RTX 3070 Ti. That said, Intel's GPU drivers remain in development, and the exact performance levels of Intel's planned GPU flagship remain unknown. 

Intel's Xe-HPG graphics cards will reportedly offer users 512 Execution units that offer users base clock speeds of 2.2GHz. Memory-wise, Xe-HPG allegedly offer users 16GB of GDDR6 memory over a 256-bit memory bus, matching Nvidia's RTX 3070 in terms of bandwidth while offering two times as much memory capacity. 

Intel's Xe-HPG graphics card features an 8+6-pin PCIe power configuration in leaked images, suggesting a power target as high as 275 watts. Leaks also suggest that Intel's Xe-HPG graphics cards will be targeting prosumers, offering users impressive levels of encoding performance. That, and Xe-HPG's 16GB frame buffer, will make Intel's discrete GPU offerings incredibly appealing to video editors. 

Xe-HPG's launch should be in Q4 2021, giving Intel plenty of time to develop strong drivers and an ample GPU supply. Intel is reportedly working on a competitor to Nvidia's DLSS feature, using the internal name XeSS.

If this is true and it comes in at a decent price it's good for everyone, Well mainly scalpers, Price gouging retailers and miners, The rest of us will still be waiting multiple years for a GPU.Quote

I think it's gonna be awesome if Intel can make this work. The significance of having a third player in the GPU market is very exciting to me.Quote

Great thing is Intel have their own fabs, so never have to rely on any one else.

I hope this isn't some sort of sick prank.Quote

If it is, Moore's Law Is Dead will have to start admitting he didn't get something right, which is the opposite of what he likes to do. I don't think I've ever watched a video of his where he hasn't reminded everyone how right his leaks always are. He aims this at his naysayers, which I'm not one of as I think his content is good, but I have to listen to his gloating still.Quote
