But if you were expecting this to be Intel's first foray into gaming graphics cards, you're going to be disappointed -- Ponte Vecchio is the first Xe GPU for exascale computing. Intel will be unveiling more details on Project Aurora on November 17, which will feature Sapphire Rapids Xeon CPUs, Ponte Vecchio GPUs and Intel's new initiative called oneAPI.

Intel's new Ponte Vecchio GPU will use Foveros packaging technology and CLX interconnection, as well as ultra-high cache and high bandwidth memory. Intel's new codename Ponte Vecchio will also feature high double-precision FP throughput. This isn't a gaming card once again, and an exscale computing product.
