Intel is delivering performance at low power with their integrated Xe design in the Tiger Lake chip, based on several posted benchmarks.

Raja's twitter site shows pictures of three very large discrete Xe chips. PCIE5/CXL plus a scalable tiled GPU design and a ton of work going into oneAPI to support them.

What will NVDA MC look like if Intel takes a third of the discrete GPU market over the next two years?

What makes you think they will even have the fab capacity to reach that market share in 2 years? Intel isn't exactly knocking it out of the park with 10nm right now. Intel's first 7nm product is supposed to be a GPU and that isn't expected until late next year, and I don't think anyone is really expecting much from Xe until that point is reached. Intel isn't going from 0-33% dGPU market share in a year.

apparently Intel 10nm second generation processing is doing better. Tiger Lake performance leaks are much improved over Ice Lake, with the Xe GPU in particular performing 2x better than the gen11 integrated GPU on Ice lake.

Intel is manufacturing small, scalable GPU chiplets, then stitching them with EMIB. They have some manufacturing expertise in this area from their FPGA production.
The Aurora project is at the end of next year, but note that Raja's site shows three other big discrete GPU chips are already in the lab.

While their Ponte Vecchio Xe is in Intel 7nm, I've seen rumors about them building some Xe GPUs at TSM.

Perhaps people don't know that they have been building 7nm eyeq5 chips at TSM since 2018.
