Intel Demos Its First Discrete GPU, Code-Named DG1
After announcing its intent to enter the discrete GPU market in 2017, Intel demonstrated its first product in the category, a discrete graphics card code-named DG1 that is made for laptops. The company showed a laptop with DG1 running a live demo of the PC game Destiny 2. Gregory Bryant, Intel’s top PC executive, said while “it’s early days” for DG1, it’s going to be “fantastic” not just for gaming but for content creation applications as well. DG1 is based on the same Xe GPU architecture that is powering new integrated graphics capabilities in Intel’s upcoming Tiger Lake mobile processors as well as the company’s first discrete GPU for servers, code-named Ponte Vecchio.
