Intel China has put out more official-looking renders of its Xe graphics card through Weibo (Twitter-equivalent). The Weibo post does not say who the designer is so we might assume that these could be done by the company’s industrial design team and that they are close to finalizing a product-design for the client-segment of Xe.
The card looks to feature a metal shroud and a cooling solution that makes use of three fans with some pretty nifty looking LED elements. The back of the card has a full-cover backplate with some LED elements and it is interesting to see that all of the screws on the back are blue.
The card will get power from dual 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors located on the end of the card, which are also blue. Display outputs include three DisplayPort and a single HDMI, these ports are also blue.
Intel is expected to release the first Xe graphics card in 2020, which will be built on Intel’s 10 nm silicon fabrication process.
