Twitter leaker APISAK has some fresh details about Intel's future DG2 GPU. This will be a higher-performing discrete video card from Intel. VideoCardz writes the information suggests the DG2 with 448 execution units (EUs) has about 92 percent the performance level of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT.
The 448EU model clocked at 1.8 GHz is falling behind GeForce RTX 3070 desktop GPU by 5%, according to APISAK. The leaker is careful not to reveal the source of this information, thus is it unclear what benchmark is he using for the comparison. At the same time, APISAK mentions a 128EU model clocked at 1.9 GHz which is 12% faster than GeForce GTX 1650, again not mentioning what type of workload is being used. It is not clear if this is a desktop or mobile variant either, but since the leaker is comparing the results to desktop GPUs, one would assume that this is a desktop GPU.
The first DG2 variant may hit the market before the end of this year, with other editions to follow in Q1 2022. We still don't know a whole lot of what to expect from Intel's upcoming discrete video cards. So far, it looks like the upcoming generation from Intel will not be able to match the highest-performing models from NVIDIA's and AMD's current lineup. It will also be very interesting to see if Intel can get the drivers mature enough.
