6 GB VRAM for a GPU of a GTX 1650 Super - RX 5500 XT performance levels is very good news because: it will not be limited in games, by VRAM capacity, exactly like 1650 and 1650 Super are limited by VRAM capacioty. RX 5500 XT 8 GB is currently 30% faster GPU, than GTX 1650 Super, solely because of VRAM capacity, despite the fact that at the start of the sales - 1650 Super was on par in performance, while being more efficient.This is kind of what I meant earlier. Is this good news?
Does 6GB on a low end card mean 12GB on a high end card?
will the two triangles per clock scale with a more powerful card or maybe the under build area will be overbuilt on the halo product.
Personally I am confused and excited by how little intel has released.
Two triangles per clock compared to RX 5500 XT - one triangle per clock means that the GPU will not be limited by Geometry performance, and on this front you can expect that you will extract all of the graphical throughput from the ALUs, ROPs, etc.
The only limiting factor is the bandwidth. However, this small GPU has unusually high amount of L2 cache for just 1024 ALUs - 4 MB.
This design is weird, for those reasons. But for those reasons I love it.
P. S. High end cards are confirmed to have 16 GB on 512 EU variant and 12 GB on 384 EU variant.
Hardware capabilities are there. Its up to drivers to extract the performance from the GPU.You're forgetting about driver optimizations.
