Intel Announces Xe-HPG: Return to the Game Graphics Market, Supporting Hardware Optical Chase

Intel today not only released a series of products such as the new Tiger Lake processor, but also launched a new graphics card product branch Xe-HPG for gamers. Intel stated that related products integrate the performance characteristics of Xe-LP and the scalability of Xe-HP, and will begin shipping next year.

The specific specifications of related products are still uncertain, but it is known that Xe-HPG uses GDDR6 video memory, supports hardware-level ray tracing, and will be outsourced to third-party foundries. This is Intel, as the manufacturer with the highest market share of graphics cards (including independent graphics and nuclear graphics), once again set foot in the field of game graphics.

The Xe series announced by Intel this time are divided into Xe-LP, Xe-HPG, Xe-HP and Xe-HPC. Among them, Xe-LP is used for nuclear display and low-power products, and will be the first to be carried by Tiger Lake SoC. The first independent display DG1 using Xe-LP is for developers and content creators and will start shipping next year.

Xe-HP is oriented to data centers and AI computing. The lowest specification 1-Tile has 10.6TFLOPS FP32 computing power. Intel said that it can achieve 10 channels of 4K HEVC video implementation coding. The highest specification 4-Tile has 42.3TFLOPS; He-HPC is high Performance computing market.
