Another leak discovered by Twitter user TUM_APISAK. This time he found an entry of a dual-GPU Intel Xe configuration in the database of the SiSoft Sandra benchmark. Tom's Hardware speculates this may be the integrated graphics of Tiger Lake working in tandem with a discrete Xe-based video card:
The thought of a discrete GPU working in tandem with the integrated graphics sounds interesting, especially since the leaked benchmarks of Xe devices have always pointed to a single GPU. Nonetheless, we can't discard the likelihood of SiSoftware misreporting the GPU. Xe is unreleased hardware after all, and it's always tricky to pick those up.

The dual-GPU setup reportedly features a total of 192 Execution Units (EUs), which comes out to 1,536 shader cores. Apparently, there's 6.2GB of memory and 2MB of L2 cache onboard as well. The dual-GPU completed the benchmark with a 1.25 GHz clock speed. If we dissect the setup, it falls perfectly in line with our theory.
