Intel Xe HPG Graphics May Compete with Current-Gen NVIDIA and AMD GPUs

Estimates suggests Intel’s Xe HPG graphics may be able to perform at RTX 3070 levels sans raytracing and at today’s market climates, any signs of hope for a 3rd competitor for mainstream GPU is welcome.

Intel Xe HPG Graphics May Compete with Current-Gen NVIDIA and AMD GPUs -

Intel’s Xe DG1 GPUs have proven that the company’s discrete GPU attempts may seem to be a viable and competent option for the entry level market. Their Xe DG1 GPU competes with the likes of NVIDIA’s own entry-level GPUs like the NVIDIA MX 350. Recent reports suggests that Intel’s DG2 may be capable enough to allow it to compete with the NVIDIA RTX 3070 and the RX 6800.

Raja Koduri recently tweeted about his earlier project with Intel, the Intel Iris Pro 5200, which TechPowerUp reports to score around 1400 in 3DMark Fire Strike. Koduri cites that 9 years later, Intel’s GPU is now 20 times faster which should give us a an indication on how Intel’s XE HPG could perform. Considering the scaling suggested, it can be inferred that at 20x scaling, Intel’s GPU may be scoring around >28,000 points in Fire Strike. This suggests that the Intel GPU could be positioned to take on mainstream cards like the RTX 3070 and RX 6800, or on a more modest estimate, the RTX 2060 or 5500 XT.
