Intel releases DG1 desktop version alone: only for OEM manufacturers, parameters are also reduced

Intel previously released the graphics card DG1 of the Iris Xe-LP series, which was later used in the nuclear display Iris Xe and the independent Iris Xe Max, mainly for notebook products.

However, a recent Intel updated press release shows that DG1 has been used in the desktop version of the standalone display. The current partners include Asus and Colorful.

Among them, ASUS products use a passive heat dissipation design. The front is covered with an aluminum heat sink, and the back interface is composed of an HDMI, a DP and a DVI.

Colorful uses a slightly exaggerated dual fan design, which looks close to entry-level gaming graphics cards overall. The interface is not clear, but it should be similar to ASUS.

Both graphics cards will face the OEM market, and it is estimated that not many DIY players will choose them.

They are all only 80EU, which is 1/6 less than the 96EU of the full blood version of DG1, and is the same as the integrated core of the processor i5-1135G7. However, unofficial content shows that their TDP has reached 30W, which is higher than the mobile version of 96EU, which is estimated to be more frequent.

As an entry-level product, Intel naturally did not introduce too much content on performance, but only emphasized some features. For example, it supports three-screen output, hardware-accelerated video codec (including AV1), Adaptive Sync adaptive synchronization, DisplayHDR and PD4a deep learning inference, etc.

I think it is impossible to rule out the possibility of substandard (not full blood 96EU) chips shielding the core, although higher TDP and better heat dissipation environment may make their actual performance higher.

Intel should launch more DG1-based independent displays in the future. I think these things can only be said when the products are enriched.
