Another day, another Intel Tiger Lake and Xe graphics leak. This time, it comes courtesy of secret benchmark spotter extraordinaire TUM_APISAK, who spotted an Intel Tiger Lake CPU with integrated graphics on SiSoftware. Tiger Lake will ship with a graphics capability that reaches at least 96 Execution units (which boils down to the referred 768 Shading Units), which corresponds to the graphics prowess available on Intel's (currently discrete) DG1-SDV. The Iris Xe graphics on this benchmark are running at 1.3 GHz, with a 6.3 GB of memory on their elbow.

The whole hubbub about Xe was supposed to be that it constituted intel's entry into the discrete graphics market. All we've been hearing for the past half a year, instead, concerns Xe integrated gpus, not counting intel's showing of a shit performing GT1030 trash-level discrete DG1 in January...

I really hope they get their act together on the discrete market. It's not like we're expecting a 2080 Ti killer, after all. But they seem to be struggling even with the Geforce 1050 performance and that's not very good on a market where you can get RX 570 performance for 120 dollars...

What started with lots of hype and promises seems to be evolving into yet another run-of-the-mill iteration of their bog standard intel graphics. I really wish I'm made to eat my words, and I do appreciate that no company could compete with higher end gpus from the get-go, but there is a level of performance that is literally a non-starter.

You can actually get RX 570 performance for about £70 these days, I paid close to that for a SFF GT 1030 in the last year...

While this is an entry level graphic solution from Intel, it seems it may be dead on arrival. With no official timeline for release, and caught in the GPU transition to sub 12/14nm in the next few months, by the time they release this, it is going to be highly unattractive.

To be honest the DG1 was never supposed to be about performance but a demonstration platform for developers (and mostly on OEM/HPC side). Intel has only recently published driver bits to even support local memory (instead of the iGPU shared memory) for Linux. Xe in the dGPU form factor is still far ahead and we'll see the iGPU variants first.
