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.
New X3 graphics beats Ryzen 7 4800U
Intel launched its 10th generation Core architecture on May 27, 2019, at Computex last year, and it is most likely aiming to launch a Tiger Lake successor in a similar time frame. Ice Lake U will get replaced by Tiger Lake U, and the first leaks suggest a base clock of 3GHz.
Featuring Intel's Xe graphics
Intel's new Next Unit of Computing (NUC) will be based on Tiger Lake processors, and according to the latest details, it will be available in two versions, standard and gaming-oriented, both using 28W Tiger Lake-U CPUs with Intel Xe graphics.
Still just a dev card but it runs games
While Intel brought a lot of things to show at the CES 2020 show, the biggest surprise was the developer DG1 discrete Xe GPU, which was both showed running a game as a part of the Intel keynote as well as behind close doors to members of the press.
Codename DG1 is alive CEO confirms
Intel’s CEO Bob Swan has provided the financial community an update on its good Q3 2019 financial performance and mentioned a few recent milestones. In this quarter, Q3 19, Intel achieved power on exit for the first discrete GPU.
Professionals will be able to trace any rays they see
Intel's Xe discreet graphics cards are set to get ray tracing according to Intel's senior principal engineer and senior director of advanced rendering and visualisation.
From Teraflops to Petaflops
Intel organized an architecture day on the late Robert Noyce’s estate, a founder of Fairchild Semiconductor and Intel, a $22 million estate where Intel used to have its board meetings. At this symbolic landmark, Intel’s Raja Koduri, Jim Keller, Murthy as well as dozen other engineers gave the press an overview in 10nm, future GPUs, FPGAs and server products.
