Intel Xe-HPG DG2 with 512 UEs and performance similar to RTX 3070

We have new information on the Intel Xe-HPG DG2 graphics card, which would have 512 computing units and performance to compete with the RTX 3070 in the gaming segment.

A new leak reiterates the performance target of the new GPU and Intel for the gaming market, which could be similar to the RTX 3070, or even RTX 3080. The chip would be manufactured with a 6nm node from TSMC. Intel cannot yet make 6nm chips, not even 7nm, so it has to turn to a third party to do so.

According to the leak, the graphics card will have up to 512 execution units that are equivalent to 8 shading units. The latest information indicates that the GPU will reach 2.2 GHz, much higher than Intel Xe-LP. There is also talk of about 16 GB of GDDR6 memory with a 256-bit bus.

The estimated graphics card consumption is 275 W, which falls right between an RTX 3070 (250 W) and Nvidia's RTX 3080 (320 W). If these specifications are true, we would be talking about a computing power of 18 TFLOPS in FP32.

According to the video posted by Moore's Law Is Dead, Intel would have ready a technology similar to Nvidia's DLSS, which they have called XeSS. This is striking, as AMD is working on a similar technology called FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) which is open source, so it would also work on Intel GPUs.

It is expected that DG2 will be available in the fourth quarter of 2021. This information is unconfirmed rumors, and everything could change when DG2 is released. We will keep you informed.
