GPU will be produced by TSMC
New details about Intel’s gaming graphics card have surfaced on the web – its production is reported to begin next year. The graphics processor of the novelty will be built on the Xe-HPG microarchitecture, and TSMC will be engaged in its release. For this, a 6 nm technological process will be involved.
The novelty will compete with AMD’s 3D cards based on the RDNA 2 architecture and Nvidia Ampere. It is expected to receive 512 execution units and 4096 cores. As for the technical process, TSMC should begin mass production of 6-nanometer chips by the end of this year. For their release, EUV technology will be used, the density of transistors will increase by 18% compared to 7-nanometer chips.
At the same time, the entry-level Intel DG1 graphics card based on the Xe-LP architecture is already in production. And it should be on sale by the end of the year.
