In addition to the “basic” variants of the Intel DG2 graphics processor, which can count from 128 to 512 computing blocks, the company now is considering the release of a much more productive solution, such as graphics cards.
Such GPU will have 960 computing blocks, that is, there will be ten times more than in DG1. Sources say it’s not clear yet whether such a GPU will go into mass production, but such an adapter could well compete with high-level Nvidia and AMD adapters.
If we roughly equate the performance of DG1 in the Tiger Lake-U processor with GeForce GTX 1050, then DG2, without taking into account architectural improvements, a wider memory bus and faster memory, will ideally perform at the level of RTX 2080 Ti, but this is the most tentative calculations – nevertheless, a linear increase in performance with the growth of the number of computing units should not be expected. On the other hand, the DG2 GPU should get an updated or new architecture, not to mention a separate fast memory.
As for the release date, DG2 is expected in the second quarter of next year, but the specified top version, if it appears, may well come out later.
