Intel launches Iris Xe desktop graphics cards


Intel launched separate Iris Xe desktop graphics cards, originally codenamed DG1.

The new office graphics processing units are mainly aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises and desktop computers.

Intel is collaborating with Asus and other partners to sell these cards to damage systems that combine them with previously created systems.

The dg1 separate GPU relies on tiger lake's built-in GPU with roughly the same specifications.

The cards are very similar to iris Xe Max graphics cards that first appeared on laptops in October last year, but this separate DG1 GPU is not designed for games.

Intel markets it as a way to improve what is offered on desktop computers, with better graphics, multi-screen support, and improved hardware acceleration for some codecs.

The cards include three 4K outputs for multiple screens, as well as HDR support and AI capabilities.

The cards also support av1 content decryption and come with 4GB of LPDDR4x built-in video memory and 80 execution modules.

Intel also offers Adaptive Sync support, so you get a smoother experience with higher refresh rate screens using these cards.

These cards are not designed to compete with the newest and best NVIDIA AND AMD cards for games, but Intel announced in 2020 that it is developing a separate game-focused graphics processing unit called Xe-HPG.

Xe-HPG is expected to support accelerated device radiology and GDDR6 memory when it is launched sometime this year.

This promises to focus on high-performance gaming tasks and could usher in intel's competition with AMD and Invidia later this year.

Iris Xe is not Intel's first attempt to launch a desktop graphics processing unit either, as the company discontinued its Larrabee project 10 years ago and launched the Intel i740 series in 1998.

This is the first time in 20 years that we've seen Intel launch a desktop graphics processing unit, but you'll have to wait a little longer to see if Intel can face Invidia and AMD.
