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.

  1. CyberPowerPC… really. Huh.

    I always associated those guys as the budget build-to-order that encouraged you to put together builds that just don’t work quite right together… and dumped reject builds en masse on Amazon and Newegg. I guess in that vein, this probably makes perfect sense.

  2. This could be huge if they have better performance than the 2000 series. I don’t expect it but if they did they would sell out fast.

    I just want to know if it can transcode well. I’d take that build and migrate it to something less hideous 🙂

  5. This is AWESOME!! … I’ve been really itching to upgrade from this POS Ryzen 5800x setup …
