Intel Xe DG2 may rival Nvidia’s RTX 3070 and AMD’s RX 6800
Intel’s gaming-focused Xe DG2 GPU is anticipated to launch subsequent 12 months, and will carry some extra selection to our at the moment two-branded greatest graphics card information, if its efficiency is as much as scratch.
The cardboard is anticipated to return with as much as 512 execution items at a rumoured value someplace between $400 and $600, and this top-end mannequin seems to be prefer it has the potential to trounce high-end playing cards like Nvidia’s RTX 3070 and AMD’s RX 6800 if a brand new video from Moore’s legislation is useless is something to go by. The footage contains images of a Xe DG2 engineering pattern, which is purportedly the perfect one Intel has to supply.
With a dual-fan design, we additionally get a glimpse at an eight and 6 pin energy connector, which suggests the GPU will use someplace between 225W and 275W of energy. For reference, Nvidia’s RTX 3070 maxes out at 220W, with AMD’s RX 6800 rated for 250W. The YouTuber additionally claims that within the DG2’s present type, the efficiency suits someplace between the 3070 and 3080.
The report says the DG2 gained’t be prepared for shopper launch till 2022 on the earliest, so we’ll have to attend to see if Intel has sufficient efficiency to disrupt the Nvidia and AMD duopoly. The claimed 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM is identical as AMD’s RX 6800 and 6 greater than what’s contained in the RTX 3080, which may trump crew inexperienced – however, there’s extra to a GPU than simply reminiscence, and the 3080 makes use of sooner GDDR6X RAM.
It additionally quotes a supply stating that the 512 EU DG2 “must be handled like an RTX 3070 Ti” – a GPU that additionally hasn’t been revealed but. Identical to AMD’s upcoming FidelityFX, Intel’s additionally rumoured to be working by itself supersampling different to Nvidia’s glorious DLSS expertise, codenamed ‘XeSS’.
Let’s simply hope Intel’s new lineup of gaming GPUs don’t run into the identical inventory points plaguing each AMD and Nvidia’s playing cards.
