Intel could have a new integrated GPU in the pipeline which, at least according to what the acronym suggests, should be a more powerful version of the Iris Xe iGPUs that equip the recent 11th generation "Tiger Lake U" Core processors. This indiscretion has actually been circulating for a few days, in fact, following the announcement of the new company logos a few days ago, the brand new Iris Xe Max was seen leading along with the completely redesigned logos for Core processors and beyond.
To definitively confirm the existence of this iGPU, there is now a further promo video from Intel which, on its YouTube channel, proposes the Iris Xe Max logo, without however providing technical information about it. According to reports PCWorld, the US manufacturer would have unofficially confirmed the product, stating however that the details on the new integrated GPU will be revealed later.
What is certain is that this chip will use the new Intel Xe GPU architecture, the same used for the recent Core 11th gen processors and that, as Intel itself has now confirmed, we will also see on the first dedicated gaming GPU that Intel, however, should not present before. next year.
The rumors circulating on the web exclude that it is a dedicated GPU, suggesting instead an integrated chip derived from Iris Xe very high in frequencies and most likely equipped with more processing units (EU or Execute Unit) than the one present on the CPUs currently on the market. Among other things, the company has confirmed that it has new Core 11th gen CPUs with eight cores in the pipeline, solutions that would go very well with this new GPU.
