Became known details about the new high-performance graphics cards from Intel
RedGamingTech has released details on the next generation of Intel GPUs, code-named Battlemage, which will be the basis for future 2024 Arc graphics cards. In particular, they will double the number of cores compared to the current Alchemist GPUs.
It is indicated that Battlemage GPUs will be divided into two areas: high-performance Xe2-HPG for the second generation of discrete Intel graphics cards and low-performance Xe2-LPG for integration along with central processors. According to RedGamingTech, if Alchemist had a maximum of 32 Xe cores, Battlemage will use the new Xe2 cores up to 64. Moreover, they will be able to operate at frequencies above 3 GHz, while in the current generation it is only 2.4- 2.5 GHz. TSMC also reported a move from 6nm to a more advanced 4nm process
The report states that the GPU die size is similar to NVIDIA’s AD103, with an area of 379mm². Although it is slightly smaller than the 406mm² of the Alchemist ACM-G10 GPU. The TDP of the top chip will be 225+W. A 256-bit bus interface and 48 MB L2 cache are also reported – 3 times more than the ACM-G10 and the same as the NVIDIA AD104.
Future GPU changes include next-generation memory and compression subsystem, improved ray tracing, and next-generation machine learning-based rendering technology. The main emphasis, as stated, Intel makes on gamers and enthusiasts.
By the way, recently Intel left the head of the graphics division.
