Intel’s first discrete desktop GPU, the Iris Xe-based “DG1,” is exclusive to system integrators and pre-built systems. The first of these systems has appeared courtesy of Best Buy, which has listed a “Gamer Xtreme Gaming Desktop” from CyberPowerPC that leverages one of Intel’s new DG1 graphics cards with 80 Execution Units (640 shading units) and 4 GB of LPDDR4X memory (68 GB/s). The PC also features an 11th Gen Intel Core i5-11400F (6C/12T) processor and 500 GB SSD.
While it may not sound important, this is actually a very important development in the PC market. The third player has officially entered the game. Later this year Intel will announce its DG2 graphics family, which will feature Xe-HPG architecture. Those cards will be a lot faster than Iris Xe in this prebuilt system.
