Intel has released the latest drivers for its integrated graphics, and inside there is a nice surprise: a tease of its upcoming Xe-branded GPUs in the form of DG1 and DG2 codenames.

Intel Xe GPUs teased: 4 models in total with up to 512 cores | TweakTown.com

The 'DG' in both DG1 and DG2 should mean discrete graphics, while there is one variant of the DG1 and 3 variants of the DG2. The variants are broken into LP and HP could mean low-powered and high-powered, but it could also mean low-profile and high-profile... maybe.

Inside of the DG2 family there are three different numbers: 128, 256, and 512 -- this could be the EUs, or execution units. The DG1 variant seems to be the higher-end of the four SKUs.

Here's what we're looking at:

DG1 HW

  • iDG1LPDEV = "Intel(R) UHD Graphics, Gen12 LP DG1" "gfx-driver-ci-master-2624"

DG2 HW

  • iDG2HP512 = "Intel(R) UHD Graphics, Gen12 HP DG2" "gfx-driver-ci-master-2624"
  • iDG2HP256 = "Intel(R) UHD Graphics, Gen12 HP DG2" "gfx-driver-ci-master-2624"
  • iDG2HP128 = "Intel(R) UHD Graphics, Gen12 HP DG2" "gfx-driver-ci-master-2624"
