DG1 GPUs with low power consumption started to be used on the server side. A combination of multiple graphics chips offers 8 GB VRAM support per GPU.
Intel recently released its first external GPU, the DG1 (Iris Xe Max) . Now there is a new development regarding the Xe architecture and the “Intel Server GPU” has been officially introduced.
The Server GPU, previously called SG1, is targeting the server market, although it is based on the same Xe-LP architectural design as the DG1.
With Intel’s new silicones, the Android is primarily targeting the cloud-based game market, and the blue team sees this as a growing market for both gaming and video. In this context, there is an expectation that Android cloud games will spread and grow greatly in the coming years. On the other hand, a suitable software ecosystem is being developed to use the Server GPU in this area.
As for the specs, the new graphics chip is almost identical to the DG1. A notable difference at this point is that the DG1 uses 4 GB of VRAM, while 8 GB of memory per GPU is configured on the server side.
H3C XG310 4-GPU Video Card
Intel also introduced the new XG310 graphics card from its first customer, H3C. This graphics card has four Xe-LP GPUs. There is also 8GB of LPDDR4X memory per GPU for a total of 32GB internal VRAM. The connection is provided by a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface.
The XG310 is intended to be sold to server OEMs and game service providers. On the other hand, one of the first customers was Tencent from China, and cooperation is expected to increase in the future.
