Intel is eagerly awaited as a competitor to AMD and Nvidia in the dedicated graphics card market. The first entry in it will mark Xe DG1, also known as Gen12 or Xe-LP. But what can Intel's GPU offspring do and what is it suitable for?

Answers to this are provided by several Open-CL benchmark results from the Geekbench database (via Videocardz), which make it possible to compare DG1 with entry-level graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia.

An overview of the benchmarks

Open CL score (total)

Sobel

Histogram equalization

SFFT

Gaussian Blur

Face detection

RAW

Depth of field

Particle Physics

What does that mean for players?

Obviously, Intel Xe DG1 can not keep up with models from AMD and Nvidia – apart from the particle physics calculation, in which DG1 is clearly superior to the two opponents.

Apparently this is not even wanted, because DG1 will most likely not be available as a graphics card for the desktop, but only as a low power version (Xe-LP) for notebooks, as if from one TechpowerUp report emerges.

The graphics card (DG1), which Intel presented at CES 2020 in January, was advertised from the outset as a so-called Software Development Vehicle (SDV). That is, it is intended for development purposes

, such as that of the graphics driver.

Previous leaks have also shown that the Xe DG1-GPU has 96 execution units (EUs). This corresponds to 768 shader units and thus less than even the entry-level models from AMD and Nvidia have to offer. However, it should be noted that the comparison of the number of computing cores across architecture is only conditionally, if not to say, hardly possible.

Live gameplay scenes from Destiny 2 were also shown at CES 2020. Accordingly, DG1 will also be suitable for gaming in laptops.

* Information not confirmed

Real high-end graphics cards from Intel for gamers don't seem to be imminent. In this regard, Intel itself recently dampened hopes somewhat and referred to the mainstream segment.

In addition to the low-power variant Xe-LP, the plan also includes Xe-HP (high-performance) and Xe-HPC (server), which could also cover high-end graphics cards for the desktop PC.
