Intel has partnered with ASUS and Colorful for the launch of its Intel Xe discrete desktop graphics card. The partnership involves designing and launching graphics card as part of pre-built systems. These two DG1 boards are targeted at mainstream users and small to medium-sized businesses.
The DG1 graphics card features 80 execution units(EU), 16 EUs less than the notebook version, and 4GBs of LPDDR4X memory. Base and Boost clocks of both models are still unknown, however, both GPUs feature the same display outputs, hardware video decode and encode acceleration, AV1 decode support, VESA Adaptive-Sync and Display HDR support alongside artificial intelligence capabilities.
Intel’s latest Xe DG1 discrete graphics card isn’t positioned to rival Nvidia and AMD’s latest and graphics card, but rather provides an alternative solution for pre-builts with the premium technologies mentioned earlier.
