In a post published on twitter but promptly canceled, Intel announced that it will soon provide new details on the long-awaited Intel Xe GPU architecture, a project that the manufacturer has set up to offer a new graphics card alternative to the two giants AMD and NVIDIA. .
In the tweet in question, there are no technical elements, but a confirmation that within 20 days new information will be disseminated on the Xe GPUs and on the different variants that will subsequently arrive on the market.
The showcase for this occasion will probably be theHot Chips 2020an event which, like many others of this kind, will be held by teleconference due to the pandemic. In confirmation of this we report that on August 17 – the first day of conferences – Intel will hold several sessions that will see the new Xe graphics solutions in its various forms in the spotlight, starting from the integrated GPUs of the Tiger Like processors already unveiled at CES 2020.
As for dedicated graphics cards, remember that the first Intel solution to debut on the market will be Ponte Vecchio – already announced in November – a high-performance GPU built with a 7nm production process and intended for the supercomputer segment.
Intel Ponte Vecchio will debut next year, while the new Gen12 integrated GPUs with Xe architectures will be unveiled – together with the Tiger Lake Core 11th Gen CPUs – in an event that should be held already in September. As for the first dedicated graphics cards for gaming, the wait will be longer and most likely the first products will not be aimed at the high end of the market.
