Intel’s Next-Generation Xe-HPG Gaming GPUs To Utilize TSMC’s 6nm Process Node, Launching in 2021’s Discrete Graphics Lineup
Intel is launching its first gaming discrete graphics cards
based on its next-generation Xe-HPG GPUs next year. The gaming lineup will feature a range of products but unlike the Xe-LP & Xe-HP GPU line which will be fabricated on Intel's own 10nm SuperFin process node, the Xe-HPG GPUs are going to be produced at an external foundry with TSMC being the most likely candidate.
TSMC To Win Intel's Xe-HPG GPU Orders, First Gaming Discrete Lineup To Be Produced on 6nm Process Node
Reports coming out of Taiwanese based outlets seem to indicate that TSMC is confident in winning orders for Intel's next-generation Xe-HPG GPUs. As reported by IThome
), Intel's Xe-HPG GPUs will be produced at TSMC's fabs, making use of their bleeding-edge fabrication technologies. The Taiwan-based sources claim that Intel is likely to utilize TSMC's 6nm process node for its gaming GPUs that will be competing against AMD's RDNA 2 and NVIDIA's Ampere GPU lineup by the time they hit the store shelves. https://wccftech.com/intel-xe-hpg-gaming-gpus-tsmcs-6nm-process-node/
