The American retail network BestBuy began selling the first game computer equipped with a discrete video card Intel IRIS XE (DG1). The system manufacturer is CyberPower PC. A novelty called Gamer Xtreme Gaming Desktop refers to the younger segment of the game PC, but built on the basis of the newest Intel Core 11th generation processor (Rocket Lake-S).
The CyberPower Gamer Xtreme Gaming Desktop is based on the 6-core and 12-line Intel Core i5-11400F processor with a frequency of up to 4.4 GHz. This chip does not have a built-in graphics core, which indicates the Sufist “F” in its name.
The processing of graphics here is the discrete graphics accelerator Intel DG1, built on the XE-LP architecture. This video card is unlikely to work with the latest games, but its capacity should be quite enough for popular multiplayer games in 1080p resolution.
The GPU of this graphics accelerator uses 640 shader blocks (80 executive blocks). The manufacturer allocated a 2 GB of the LPDDR4X memory standard with a bandwidth of 68 GB / s. Unfortunately, on the published image of the video card, the video card is not demonstrated in detail, so it is unknown who is its manufacturer. At the moment, it is known that the production of Intel IRIS XE (DG1) video cards are engaged in at least two companies – ASUS and Colorful.
According to the latest data, this year, Intel is going to submit DG2 video cards built on the XE-HPG graphics architecture. These solutions will be offered a much higher level of productivity compared to the same DG1 model. Rumors argue that the new DG2 series will be able to sort the newest NVIDIA and AMD video cards.
