Intel DG1: Intel's First dGPU For Consumers/Gamers

This is what we're all here for -- Intel DG1, which is Intel's first dGPU (discrete GPU) for customers. If you're old enough, you are like me and remember the Intel i740 on AGP. I remember playing Trespasser at the time on an Intel i740 and beign floored (at least by some of what) Intel had achieved. The promise of the Intel i740 quickly died, and stayed buried for decades... until Xe.


Intel's first discrete graphics card is powered by the Xe GPU architecture, with Intel using dynamic tuning for power efficiency -- meaning it can go into low-power systems like notebooks, NUCs, and other gaming-ready PCs. It will have media and display engines that we're used to with AMD and NVIDIA, as well as be powerful enough for content creation and "gaming-optimized".

Lots of press-deck-chat here, but I think I need some sit down time with Intel and their various people and engineers, including chief architect Raja Koduri on some clarification here. But what we know is that Intel will have DG1 as its first dGPU for customers, and we should be excited.
