Intel confirms its top-of-the-line gaming GPU will offer 4096 cores and 16GB GDDR6

Intel updated the repositories of its official website with very valuable information, such as confirming that we will have three variants of Intel DG2 gaming graphics cards for desktops, and their specifications. The information does not really add anything new, but at least it confirms that all the leaks seen to date will be fulfilled.

As we already knew, the top-of-the-range model offers 512 Execution Units, where each of these units integrates 8 Shading Units (cores), so the top-of-the-range model will offer 4096 cores which will be accompanied by 16 GB of GDDR6 memory, which for now we know that it will move between 14 and 18 GHz. We suppose that this model would reach 18 GHz, and the less powerful ones will slow down since all models share the use of the same type of memory.

The mid-range model has 384 Execution Units that translate into 3072 cores that will be accompanied by 12 GB of GDDR6 memory, while we will see a third model with 256 Execution Units / 2048 cores with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory.

Additionally, we would have two very low-end models that could be exclusive to laptops: one offers 128 Execution Units / 1024 cores with 4 GB of GDDR6 memory, and the next offer a configuration already seen with 96 EUs / 768 cores with 4 GB of memory GDDR6. After all these data, it would only remain to confirm the existence of the model with 192 EUs, which was not listed.

All these graphics will support the PCI-Express 5.0 interface, will have HDMI 2.1 connectivity, and the possibility of getting a DisplayPort output through a USB Type-C.
