Intel is gearing up to launch a full line of discrete gaming desktop graphics cards. The difference between the models will be very large
Intel has already released its first discrete desktop graphics card (in the last two decades), but it will not be sold in retail, and its characteristics leave much to be desired.
However, the company has already confirmed that a gaming desktop graphics card will be available at retail this year. It is usually called DG2 or Xe-HPG, but the production model can be called Iris Xe 2 or something else.
According to recent rumors, not one video card is waiting for us, but a whole line. It is unclear whether the same GPU will be based on, but the parameters of the cards will differ quite significantly.
As you can see, we are waiting for both an obviously budget solution with 768 cores and a 64-bit bus, and a top-end card with 8 or 16 GB of memory, a 256-bit bus and 4096 cores.
Younger options may not be available at retail at all, although not necessarily. It is also worth noting that Intel had previously confirmed that some third-party partner would produce GPUs for new products. Perhaps TSMC. And in this case, it is unclear whether the new Intel graphics cards will be in the same shortage as all other new adapters on the market. Moreover, even the youngest models use GDDR6 memory.
