We would possibly get started seeing Intel’s Xe graphics playing cards in the summertime of 2020. No less than, that’s what Raja Koduri, Intel leader architect, used to be hinting at in his tweet on October three.
The reigning processor (CPU) producer is coming into the discrete graphics playing cards marketplace with its drawing close Intel Xe playing cards, and for the primary wave of those Xe graphics playing cards, it’s already dedicated to a 2020 agenda.
Raja Koduri’s tweet, which Tom’s reported on, is a photograph of what we’re assuming is the rear of his Tesla Fashion S bearing a customized registration number plate with the phrases ‘THINKXE,’ ‘June’ and 2020’ on it. And, it kind of feels to substantiate Intel’s goal date.
Intel is not any stranger to cryptic messages equivalent to this, having teased the Espresso Lake chips’ unencumber date with a espresso cup bearing the phrase ‘October’ and the numbers ‘10’ and ‘2017’ a few years again. Seeing as this photograph got here instantly from the pony’s mouth, to be able to talk, we’re going to take it as gospel.
Then again, whether or not or no longer it’s the date for the disclosing or the discharge itself, we haven’t any concept. We’re making a bet on a unencumber, however since Computex is a June affair, it may well be that the producer will announce it on the tournament and unencumber it a couple of days later.
A 3rd contender within the GPU race
Simply when AMD has in the end stuck as much as Nvidia within the graphics playing cards recreation, Intel is throwing its chips – or slightly, graphics playing cards – within the pot, which might most effective imply excellent issues for us.
Those Intel Xe graphics playing cards, which can be in keeping with the Gen 12 graphics structure, will are available two variants – one for shoppers and the opposite for the knowledge heart. They are going to even be made from the whole thing from entry-level mobile graphics to gaming GPUs to basic goal GPUs for exascale supercomputers.
How Intel’s playing cards will measure up in opposition to their AMD and Nvidia competitors, we’ll have to attend and spot. However, with Raja Koduri himself sharing weirdly particular, albeit enigmatic, knowledge in regards to the playing cards, we’re certain we’ll get started seeing leaks churning during the rumor mill in the following few months main as much as June 2020.
