Intel’s graphics business boss and chief architect Raja Koduri today confirmed a sad news: Intel Xe HP’s high-performance graphics cards will only be used for personal use and will not be sold publicly. He said,The Xe HP architecture is mainly used to build Intel’s own development platform foundation, and use its computing performance to develop related software for oneAPI and Aurora supercomputing. The related technology will extend to the Xe HPG and Xe HPC architecture, but it will not be used in commercial products. .
The Intel Xe architecture is divided into four different levels:
One is the low-power Xe LP, positioning core display and entry-level independent display, have been launched, 11/12 generation Core integrated, DG1 Iris Xe MAX, server-side SG1 are all it;
The second is the high-performance graphics Xe HPG. For mainstream gaming graphics cards, DG2 Alchemist will be born early next year;
The third is the high-performance Xe HP, which is oriented to cloud computing, multimedia transcoding, and machine learning.
The fourth is Xe HPC for high-performance computing, the corresponding product Ponte Vecchio, multi-process multi-IP integrated packaging,More than 100 billion transistors, Will be used in supercomputers.
Among them, Xe HP may be the most unfamiliar to everyone, because there is relatively little public talk about it, but it also discloses a lot of information, such asIntegrated package 1, 2 or 4 tiles (Tile), integrated HBM2e memory, The first product code-named Arctic Sound.
Raja has also exposed its samples before, and it seems that the area is quite large.
