Intel’s discrete graphics cards codenamed Xe, first GPUs coming in 2020

During the Architecture Day 2018, Intel revealed that its new discrete graphics cards will be codenamed Xe (or Xe if you prefer). Now do note that this is the name of the architecture and not how the GPUs will be named for the market (pretty much like what Turing is to NVIDIA’s RTX graphics cards).

The first GPUs will be coming out in 2020 and will cover all ranges; from integrated and data center cards to the highly anticipated consumer products.

Intel has also shared the following slides for its new architecture.

As said, the first GPUs will come out in 2020 so it’s still very early. Intel has not revealed any additional details, though we expect to hear more about these new graphics cards in 2019.

Stay tuned for more!

Kudos to our reader Metal Messiah for bringing this to our attention and thanks Anandtech!
