Intel Gen12 Xe GPU with 96 Execution Units Shows Up on SiSoft Database

An Intel Gen12 Xe GPU, possibly a discrete- DG1 prototype, showed up on the SiSoft SANDRA online database. The GPU is detailed by SANDRA as having 768 unified shaders across 96 execution units (EUs), a 1.50 GHz GPU clock speed, 1 MB of on-die L2 cache, and 3 GB of dedicated video memory of an unknown type (likely GDDR6). This is probably a different chip from the DG1-SDV, which caps out at 900 MHz GPU clock, although its SIMD muscle is identical.

At a clock-speed of 1.50 GHz, the chip would feature an FP32 throughput of 2,303 GFLOPs (we know this from the DG1-SDV offering 1382 GFLOPs at 900 MHz). If the software-side optimization backs this hardware, the resulting product could end up with performance in the league of the 8 CU Radeon "Vega" solution found in the AMD "Renoir" APU, or the Radeon RX 560 discrete GPU, which are just about enough for PUBG at 1080p with medium settings.

While this is the first big attempt for Intel in bringing a discrete graphic to the mass market, I think the specs sounds very feeble in this case. While it can be a low end card, but 3GB of VRAM in 2020 don't sound appropriate. With Nvidia and AMD moving up to 4GB as a base, 3GB of VRAM will likely not perform favorably.

3GB? Maybe a cut down version of another chip that can normally handle 4GB?

If I had to speculate this will be on die and similar to an APU.

Whatever... great platform for writing drivers. Real silicon, not an emulator.

It is not. DG1 is a development prototype. AFAIK Intel has even said this is a preview of the potentially highest core configuration Gen12 iGPU in Tiger Lake.
