Nekoliko inačica GP11 GPU-a upućeno u najnovije Intelove upravljačke programe



The latest version of Intel Graphics drivers which introduce the company's latest UWP-based Graphics Command Center app, hide another secret in their INF. The file has pointers to dozens of variants and implementations of the company's next-generation Gen11 integrated graphics architecture, which we detailed in a recent article. Intel will implement Gen11 on two key processor microarchitectures, 'Ice Lake' and 'Lakefield,' although later down the line, the graphics technology could trickle down to low-power Pentium Silver and Celeron SoC lines, too, with chips based on the 'Elkhart Lake' silicon.

Postoji 13 varijanti Gen11 na 'Ledenom jezeru', isklesano pomoću broja izvršnih jedinica (EU) i LP (male snage) agresivnog upravljanja napajanjem. Glavni procesori stolnih računala temeljeni na 'Ice Lakeu', koji su najmanje suzdržani u upravljanju energijom, dobivaju najmoćnije varijante Gen11 pod markom Iris Plus. Iris Plus Graphics 950 najmoćnija je implementacija, sa omogućenim 64 EU-a i najvećim brzinama GPU-a. Ova bi se varijanta mogla pojaviti na Core i7 i Core i9 robnim markama izvedenim iz „Ice Lake“. Sljedeće je Iris Plus Graphics 940, s istim brojem EU-a, ali vjerovatno nižim brzinama takta, koje bi mogle biti prisutne u velikom nizu Core i5 SKU-ova. Iris Plus 930 dolazi u dvije izvedbe na temelju broja EU, od 64 i 48, a vjerojatno bi se mogao širiti po Core i3 liniji. Konačno, tu je Iris Plus 920 s 32 EU-a koji se mogu naći u Pentium Gold SKU-ovima. Postoje različiti SKU-ovi robne marke 'UHD Graphics Gen11 LP', s brojevima od 32 do 64. Intel's 'Lakefield' heterogeneous SoC comes with four models of Gen11 graphics, based on two key variants of Gen11, GT1 and GT2, which are physically different in size. The GT1 variant of this iGPU is smaller than GT2, and likely has 32 EUs going by past trends of GT1 configurations. All four models are labelled 'UHD Graphics LKF,' with no further model numbering. Future releases of Intel drivers could reference 'Elkhart Lake,' the upcoming low-power SoC that incorporates Gen11 graphics architecture.
