Intel Iris Xe Max graphics have shown up in some leaked benchmarks, and also indicate the possibility that Xe Max is the name for DG1, Intel's first discrete GPU.
In a SiSoftware entry, the GPU is shown with 96 execution units and 768 streaming processors. The benchmark also shows a clock speed of 1.55 GHz, a 1MB L2 cache, and 3GB of VRAM.
Also interesting is that the benchmark record shows the laptop used for testing is a Coffee Lake-based Intel reference platform. If it's a validation system, the CPU name may simply be wrong, but it's also a good possibility that this Iris Xe Max is DG1, a discrete GPU, and it wouldn't matter which CPU it's used with.
Intel isn't being coy about the Iris Xe Max name. A badge for it showed up previously in an Intel promotional video on YouTube for the company's recent rebranding.
A leaker on the Chinese social networking site Weibo, whom we can't verify, has suggested this GPU will launch in a device called the Acer Swift 3X with a TGP of 25W, and 4GB LPDDR4x-4266 for VRAM. Take that, however, with a massive grain of salt.
It seems most likely that Iris Xe Max graphics will debut alongside Tiger Lake-H series processors, but we'll find out for sure whenever it officially launches.
