Intel's graphics chief Raja Koduri published the first 'official' image of Intel's upcoming gaming graphics processor based on the Xe-HPG architecture. Koduri also confirmed that at least one of the company's DG2 GPUs will feature 512 EUs. 

"Xe-HPG (DG2) real candy – very productive time at the Folsom lab couple of weeks ago," Raja Koduri wrote in a Twitter post."[…] Lots of game and driver optimization work ahead for Lisa Pearce's software team. They are all very excited and a little scared." 

Intel's Xe-HPG architecture employs energy-efficient processing blocks from the Xe-LP architecture, high frequency optimizations developed for Xe-HP/Xe-HPC GPUs for data centers and supercomputers, high-bandwidth internal interconnections, hardware-accelerated ray-tracing support, and a GDDR6-powered memory subsystem. The DG2 family GPUs are set to be manufactured at TSMC and are projected to hit the market in late 2021 or early 2022.

At present, Intel's highest-performance discrete GPU is based on the Xe-LP architecture and features 96 EUs. Therefore, an Xe-HPG-powered graphics processor with 512 EUs will offer significantly higher performance than Intel's existing standalone GPU. Rumor has it that the performance of Intel's graphics processor with 512 EUs will be close to that of Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3080.

    Dude, seriously, stop with the stupid teaser pics. Release the card or STFU.

    They will be made on TSMC's 7nm, you still won't be able to buy them even after they launch for another year.

    Thanks, I guess?

    Raja Koduri: it's coming real soon, as soon as our 10nm is mature enough we'll release it(ie. never).

    A stupid post: Xe-HPG is manufactured by TSMC and has nothing to do with their own 10nm.

    Additionally the launch window is known already for some time and why should they stop teasing upcoming products? AMD has done the same only few hours ago with cache-pimped Zen3's which will not be available until 2022.
    AMD has even officially announced a good product availability immediatly prior to the Zen3/BigNavi launch by Azor and Herkelman and after that it was a pure desaster.

    No doubt

    Yeah, the teasers are a bit old at this point.

    However, when the day comes that Intel gets it manufacturing woes straightened out having this kind of fabbing juggernaut in the video card arena will be quite a thing to behold in future mining waves. Intel won't rely on TSMC forever. The next video card scarcity that could have been might never be.

    Intel surely needs the influx of new cash from a new video card line which will in part help resolve their fab issues. At least, it all looks circular to me.

    Wants the influx of cash? Sure? Needs it? Not so much, I think. Intel isn't suffering financially.

    This is the only Intel product I'm actually interested in...

    I'm actually looking forward to the possibility of buying an Intel GPU. Though it's likely availability will be as poor as AMD and Nvidia. If they are available and performance is less than competitors they will still fly off shelves. Some GPU is better than no GPU. Been trying to get a 3080 since launch.
