VideoCardz writes a rumor popped up about a version of Intel's Xe-HPG GPU with as many as 960 execution units (EUs). Intel is reportedly evaluating the potential of such a configuration but it's still unknown whether the 960 EU version will make it to mass production. It's also said that the version of Xe-HPG with 384 EUs has a die size of around 185 to 188mm². Versions with 128 and 512 EUs are also expected. All these variants use GDDR6 memory.
According to the leaker, Intel is also evaluating at 960 EU option, but it is uncertain if this GPU will enter mass production. Such a configuration would definitely put pressure on NVIDIA Ampere and AMD RDNA2 high-end graphics. The Xe-HPG GPU with 960 EUs would offer 7680 FP32 ALUs (cores).
Intel is expected to introduce its gaming GPUs in the second quarter of 2021.
