Raja Koduri says Intel Xe-HPG gaming GPU’s are coming in 2021

We soon will have more choices than ever before, when it comes to powering our favorite games.

What’s the skinny? Intel recently held its Architecture Day 2020, where they showcased a diverse mix of scalarvectormatrix, and spatial architectures. Raja Koduri (senior vice president, chief architect, and general manager of Architecture, Graphics, and Software at Intel Corporation), during his press release, briefly touched on high-end enthusiast gaming graphics, stating that they are due to arrive in 2021. He also added that they are going to feature hardware-accelerated ray tracing and support for GDDR6 memory. 

Not much is known yet beyond that, but more information is sure to come as we get closer to launch day. Hopefully, with all the talent Intel has headhunted over the last few years, they can bring a product to market that can compete with NVIDIA and AMD’s Radeon products.

Raja said during his press release that he can’t wait to get his hands on the new discrete gaming GPU’s. “And, our enthusiast and gamer friends, we heard your requests for Xe for enthusiast gaming. We added a fourth microarchitecture to the Xe family: Xe-HPG optimized for gaming, with many new graphics features including ray tracing support. We expect to ship this microarchitecture in 2021 and I can’t wait to get my hands on this GPU!”

Intel’s GPU strategy is rooted in Xe, a single architecture that can scale from teraflops to petaflops. At Architecture Day in August 2020, Intel Chief Architect Raja Koduri, Intel fellows and architects provided details on the progress Intel is making. (Credit: Intel Corporation)

Xe-HP is the industry’s first multitiled, highly scalable, high-performance architecture, providing data center-class, rack-level media performance, GPU scalability and AI optimization. It covers a dynamic range of compute from one tile to two and four tiles, functioning like a multicore GPU.
