Intel has been preparing to enter the graphics processing arena for a while now. After months of reports and speculations, the Intel Iris Xe graphics chip has now been spotted in the wild. Read on!
Intel has been focusing on making serious performance improvements over its previous generation graphics processors. The upcoming Intel Iris Xe graphics chip will ship with the 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake-U CPUs, The new listing was posted to Twitter by user TUM_APISAK.
The listing confirms that the next-gen GPU will indeed use the Iris naming scheme. This 12th generation of Intel graphics processors will apparently offer twice the performance as the last generation.
The chip has 96C Execution Units, which can be equated to 768 Shading Units. It is shown to be running with 6.31 GB of memory. The chip also has 1300 MHz clock speed, and 1 MB of L2 cache. The configuration is similar to Intel’s DG1 platform, although that has been said to not have a consumer market release.
Intel is expected to reveal the Tiger Lake-U CPUs in the coming weeks, and this graphics chipset will come along with it. While we don’t expect it to match the performance offered by dedicated GPUs, it will definitely be a step up from Intel’s usual integrated GPUs.
