During last night’s CES 2020 conference, Intel provided a small taste of its first discrete graphics card, the Xe-based “DG1.”
Vice President of Architecture for Graphics and Software Lisa Pearce demoed the GPU with an ultra-thin laptop running Destiny 2.
The performance looked decent enough, but Pearce (and the Client Computing Group’s Gregory Bryant) stressed that DG1 was still in its “early days.”
According to a tweet from Intel, DG1 would provide twice the performance of Ice Lake, its current generation of graphics.
