Yesterday news hit the wire that Intel partnered up with add-in board partners to get its DG1 GPU to OEMs. Now an interesting piece of information emerges: these DG1-based Iris Xe discrete video card are not compatible with AMD processors. In fact, even on the Intel platform compatibility is quite limited as Intel is restricting support:
The Iris Xe discrete add-in card will be paired with 9th gen (Coffee Lake-S) and 10th gen (Comet Lake-S) Intel® Core™ desktop processors and Intel(R) B460, H410, B365, and H310C chipset-based motherboards and sold as part of pre-built systems. These motherboards require a special BIOS that supports Intel Iris Xe, so the cards won’t be compatible with other systems.
