During CES 2020, Intel released its first discrete graphics card, DG1. Officially named Iris Xe Max, this chip is focused on the consumer notebook market and breaks the monopoly of NVIDIA and AMD in the market. The Chuwi CoreBook Xe is going to be the first laptop to come with Intel’s DG1. It will be released worldwide in April 2021 and is expected to cost $699.
Intel’s DG1 adopts the new XE architecture, which is built on a 10nm process and has 96 EUs (Execution Units), 768 core stream processors, a 1.65GHz core frequency, and 4GB of dedicated video memory. Also, the DG1 supports Intel’s Deeplink technology, which greatly improves video encoding performance. Intel says the integrated XE graphics process on it’s Tiger Lake CPUs will have twice the graphics power of the previous generation! At CES, the Intel hardware could smoothly run Destiny , a AAA title.
According to benchmarks, the DG1 outperformed the Nvidia’s MX450 in DX12, with similar performance to a GTX 1050 TI MAX-Q. The DG1 improves visuals to fully unlock the capabilities of your laptop.
