An entry of a future Intel Xe discrete video card has been discovered in the Geekbench database. VideoCardz reports someone tested an engineering sample with 128 execution units, a maximum frequency of 1.4GHz, and 3GB memory. It's unknown which part this is, 128 EUs and 3GB RAM seems too low for the DG2 GPU. The latter is supposed to be an enthusiast-segment GPU based on the Xe-HPG architecture.

The performance of this sample seems quite bad. Something seems wrong as it scores far fewer points than the Xe MAX discrete laptop GPU, which has only 96 execution units.
The engineering sample that was used in a leaked test was clearly not operating at its full potential. The Gen12 Desktop Graphics Controller with 3GB of memory and a maximum frequency of 1.4 GHz only scored 9311 points which is far worse than Xe MAX discrete GPU for laptops. The MAX GPU features 96 Execution units, while the leaked GPU appears to be based on 128 units.
