Intel je napajan na prvoj Xe grafičkoj kartici s navodno isporučenim Dev setovima



Intel is working hard to bring its first discrete GPU lineup triumphantly, after spending years with past efforts to launch the new lineup resulting in a failure. During its Q3 earnings call, some exciting news was presented, with Intel's CEO Bob Swan announcing that 'This quarter we've achieved power-on exit for our first discrete GPU DG1, an important milestone.' By power on exit, Mr. Swan refers to post-silicon debug techniques that involve putting a prototype chip on a custom PCB for testing and seeing if it works/boots. With a successful test, Intel now has a working product capable of running real-world workloads and software, that is almost ready for sale.

Uz to, navodno je komplet za programere za grafičku karticu 'DG1' poslan raznim programerima širom svijeta, prema popisima Europske komisije za ekonomiju. Nazvan 'Diskretni grafički komplet DG1 External FRD1 Kit za pribor (Alpha) Developer Kit' ovaj je skup označen kao prototip u alfa fazi, što znači da je do pokretanja diskretnih Xe GPU-a potrebno samo nekoliko mjeseci. Ovo potvrđuje prethodne glasine da će se Xe GPU-i predstaviti 2020. negdje sredinom godine, moguće u vremenskom okviru srpanj / kolovoz.
