YouTuber Moore's Law is Dead published a video that shows off what is claimed to be an engineering sample of the Intel DG2-512EU video card. This is the highest-end version of the DG2. Allegedly, we may see a reveal sometime towards the end of this year, but product availability isn't expected until Q1 2021.
Today the YouTuber revealed the first photo of the graphics card’s PCB. It is not a frontal picture, but of its back, where we can only see the basic component layout. The PCB is much longer than the current NVIDIA RTX 30 series, but this shouldn’t come as surprise considering this is an engineering sample. The PCB supports dual 8-pin power connectors, which are soldered, but there is room for additional pair. This might be a leftover from earlier samples and something that Intel might remove later (this can also help to reduce the size of the PCB). -- VideoCardz
Moore's Law is Dead also reiterates that the DG2 successor for 2023 is codenamed "Elasti" and he reports Intel is working on a "Smooth Frame Delivery" technique. The latter sounds similar to NVIDIA's Reflex and AMD's Radeon Boost.
