On Xe, Arc GPUs
Intel has moved from native DX9 hardware support on its Intel's Xe integrated graphics solutions on 12th Gen CPUs and A-Series Arc Alchemist discrete GPUs to DirectX 12.
Ruby powered by AMD Renoir and Topaz powered by Intel Tiger Lake
Simply NUC has announced two new mini PCs, the AMD 4000-series Renoir powered Ruby, and the Intel 11th gen Tiger Lake powered Topaz, both packed in NUC 4x4 Universal Chassis created by Simply NUC, and coming in different SKUs with up to Ryzen R7-4800U or Intel Core i7-1165G7.
Beat Geforce MX350 by 26 percent
An interesting development and a story has resurfaced as we have the performance results of three notebooks featuring Tiger Lake CPU with Integrated Xe, Gen 10 Core i7 with MX 350, and Ryzen 7 4800U Renoir.
Shows some features and Intel Iris Xe and Core logos
Promotional videos for Intel's upcoming 11th Gen Core Tiger Lake CPUs have gone online, showing some features as well as new logos for the CPU, Iris Xe discrete DG1 and Xe Gen 12 iGPU, and EVO Powered by Core logos.
Intel senior graphics fellow confirms
One of the great advantages of taking part at the virtual architecture day at Intel is the chance to chat with the speakers and learn a tad more. David Blythe, a senior fellow graphics architect behind the Xe LP design, as well as Gen 11 GPU, has shared a few interesting details about Xe LP.
Hardware Ray tracing
Xe LP is a 96 EU GPU inside of Tiger Lake, and it will be the first time Intel gets to decent clock speeds at least at 1.7GHz in the notebook form factor. It is a new architecture that is the part for DG1 and SG1 desktop and server cards. Now Raja Koduri, Intel’s chief architect, announced Xe HPG high-end card for 2021.
SuperFin 10nm, high-end Xe graphics, new Core, Tiger lake, and more.
Technology Day online can work, and it did work well for Intel. Intel engineering team lead by Chief Architect Raja Koduri and Intel fellows have shown us an incredible amount of news wrapped around six pillars of technology innovation.
Big "fabulous" package (BFP) for chiplets
Intel employee Raja (King) Koduri has tickled our fancy with a tease previously pre-announced as Ponte Vecchio, Xe-HPC line of chips that will take a chiplet approach, and offer smaller and larger designs.
Coming later this year
Intel has showcased its Tiger Lake notebook prototype running Battlefield V game at 1080p with over 30 frames per second, which is a pretty nice feat for an integrated Xe graphics.
No great shakes after all
Intel's crack at a discrete GPU Xe DG1 graphics card has been spotted in a 3DMark benchmark and scored 5,538 in 3DMark’s Fire Strike test (paired with an Intel Core i9-9900K processor) and hit a graphics score of 5,960.
