If the power consumption is 10w it will be very good.What a disaster. I mean, the RX 550 is $60 right now. Just bought one the other day. And, it's old. If this is the best Intel has, what all of their R&D has been going into, future doesn't look bright. AMD crushing on CPU and GPU front. And, Intel sold off their NAND fab if I recall... What's their plan going forward?
Thats the thing, as far as i know they didnt claim this was a crazy high end chip, honestly its decent enough to play a ton of games (not necessarily at amazing settings) so long as their driver support doesnt suck. If the price is right, the performance is decent, the power consumption is in check, and theyre readily available, they would be a welcome option in the mainstream graphics segment.If the power consumption is 10w it will be very good.
Exacly my point its ~mx330 performance, ok. AT WHAT POWER ?If the power consumption is 10w it will be very good.
Only if you get a Tiger Lake laptop will you get that level of iGPU performance though. It's quite a bit better than anything else on the market as far as iGPU.What an ultra safe, low volume move. Who still puts mx330 performance level on their laptops which can be replaced by iGPU which I remember correctly 70 to 80% performance of that card.
Is DG2 a future gen part, because if the Iris Xe Max is DG1 and DG2 is the same gen would they have to call it a Xe SuperMax?The Xe DG1 is the same as the iGPU part.
DG2 is the one that is supposed to be around 3070 levels of performance. That one hasn't yet been seen.
So basically the iGPU has performance like an MX330. And when they put it in a discrete package, it performs like an MX330.
There's nothing new here.
Congrats on turning "nothing new" into yet another clickbait headline.
Lol! Dunno about their stupid naming convention. 'Max' is going to backfire on them I think, though if I go by what's written on Nvidia / AMD low end GPU boxes it's par for the course.Is DG2 a future gen part, because if the Iris Xe Max is DG1 and DG2 is the same gen would they have to call it a Xe SuperMax?
DG2 is reportedly a monolithic Xe-HPG, built with tsmc n6 process. It is their only GPU with ray tracing.Bottom line though is the DG2 would be in the same generation as DG1, but bigger in the same way that a 2080 is a bigger version of a 2060.
This is a Geekbench OpenCL score. That has to do with using the GPU as a compute processor, and little to do with how it performs as far as FPS in a game. e.g. OpenCL is also used to program FPGAs and DSPs - which (can) have nothing to do with graphics. For most folks, the OpenCL score is irrelevant. It might be useful enough to g ive you 'ballpark order of magnitude' type of performance on a GPU for graphics - but an order of magnitude is +/- 1,000%.Perhaps since its not mentioned, but I think it is still very silly of Intel if they programmed their iGPU to have more power then their dedicated GPU. So I still feel the results are very odd.
