Intel’s first-generation Alchemist graphics card will be launched in the first quarter of 2022 with the Alder Lake mobile version. Among the DG2 series GPUs of Xe-HPG architecture, DG2-128EU
is an entry-level product. Although Intel has not officially released the related Alchemist mobile graphics card, Nvidia has already taken advantage of it first. Recently, three entry-level mobile graphics cards, GeForce RTX 2050, GeForce MX570, and GeForce MX550, were first introduced.Prior to this, both desktop and mobile platforms, NVIDIA and AMD had not updated their architectures in the entry-level discrete graphics market for a long time. As Intel joins the battle, Nvidia and AMD have become more active, and AMD will soon launch products based on Navi 24 core.
Recently, the “Moore’s Law is Dead
” Youtube channel revealed that the basic power consumption of Intel ARC entry-level DG2-128EU is 30W and PL2 is 50W. Intel seems to have moved the grading number of the power consumption limit on the CPU to the GPU. The TDP of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2050 mobile graphics card is between 30W and 45W, which is close to DG2-128EU.
It is understood that there may be two mobile graphics cards using the DG2-128EU chip. One is a model with 128 EUs, which will be equipped with 4GB of GDDR6 memory at a rate of 16 Gbps. The other is a model with 96 EUs, which is also equipped with 4GB of GDDR6 memory at a rate of 16 Gbps.
On entry-level mobile graphics cards, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2050, Intel’s DG2-128EU, and AMD’s Navi 24 are all 64-bit wide. In addition to Navi 24, AMD’s Zen 3+ architecture APU code-named Rembrandt’s RDNA 2 architecture GPU should also have performance close to entry-level mobile graphics cards.
