Intel showcases for the first time its discrete Xe DG1 GPU to the public, running Destiny 2

At CES 2020, Intel showcased for the first time its upcoming discrete graphics card, the Xe DG1. Intel showcased DG1 running Destiny 2 in a laptop. In other words, this is a laptop graphics card, and not a desktop GPU. Still, this is something that may interest some of you.

As Intel’s press release reads:

“Intel Vice President of Architecture for Graphics and Software Lisa Pearce provided insight into the progress on the new Intel Xe graphics architecture, which will provide huge performance gains in Tiger Lake, and previewed Intel’s first Xe-based discrete GPU, code-named “DG1.””

According to Intel, the DG1 graphics will deliver double the performance over the GPU featured in Ice Lake laptops.

Unfortunately, we still don’t know anything about the Xe desktop discrete graphics cards that most PC gamers are looking forward to. From what we know so far, Intel plans to release it in 2020.
