Intel Announces Xe HPG GPU For Gamers – High Performance Xe Architecture Coming In 2021

Intel Xe HPG GPU: 1 Tile of Xe HPG with hardware ray tracing support, GDDR6 memory, built on external foundry process and coming in 2021

At just 1500 MHz, and with 512 EUs, the Xe HPG GPU would be able to output 12.2 TFLOPs of FP32 Compute, which is a very very impressive number and can easily drive 4K gaming.

To briefly describe some of them before we get to the details. Raja announced that the second generation 10 nm is called SuperFin and claims the largest single intronod enhancement in history comparable with full nod transition.
In other words, intel's 10nm SuperFin is closer to TSMC's 5nm then it is to 7nm.

Cool GTX
looks interesting, thanks for the links
 
"intel's 10nm SuperFin is closer to TSMC's 5nm then it is to 7nm"
 
The "X"nm size - war --> I just wish there was a Standard definition that all parties agreed to used ... instead of the competing "marketing terms"

Among the many announcements in today’s Intel Architecture Day, Intel is also offering a major update to their GPU roadmap over the next 24 months. The Xe family, already jam-packed with Xe-LP, Xe-HP, and Xe-HPC parts, is now getting a fourth planned variant: Xe-HPG. Aimed directly at the enthusiast gamer market, this latest Xe variant will be Intel’s most gaming-focused part yet, and the biggest step yet in Intel’s plans to be more diversified in its foundry sources.

So what is Xe-HPG? At a high level, it’s meant to be the missing piece of the puzzle in Intel’s product stack, offering a high-performance gaming and graphics-focused chip. This is as opposed to Xe-HP, which is specializing in datacenter features like FP64 and multi-tile scalability, and Xe-HPC which is even more esoteric. In that respect, Xe-HPG can be thought of as everything in the Xe family, distilled down into a single design to push FLOPs, rays, pixels, and everything else a powerful video card might need

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 (via @harukaze5719), 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.
