At its CES 2020 keynote, Intel showed off its upcoming Xe discrete graphics chip and today, we're seeing exactly how that's going to be implemented. First off, Intel unveiled a standalone DG1 "software development vehicle" card that will allow developers to optimize apps for the new graphics...
While its all speculation in response to vagueness from Intel, it does sound like this is going to be a discrete card in name only. I think the only real change from existing Intel is this is going to help yields because they can glue the chip on afterwards rather than relying upon yield.
I wonder what this will do for power consumption? And if its on the same package as the CPU...how is it going to have dedicated memory? Seems more likely it'll just use DDR4 off the motherboard from the CPU to me.
