By the Geekbench benchmarking software, Intel Xe-HP GPU has been seen, that is, oriented to data centers (Arctic Sound), while the Intel Xe-XPG are oriented to the gaming market (DG2).
This GPU, named ” Intel NEO Graphics “, offers a total of 512 Execution Units that translate into 4096 Shading Units (cores come on). These 4096 cores reach a frequency of 1.15 GHz, so this is a very early engineering sample since during Architecture Day the same GPU shown by Intel worked at 1.30 GHz and it was still another engineering sample.
As you can see, there is a very uneven performance between tests, which translates into an extremely low score of 25,475 points in the Geekbench OpenCL test. To give us a go, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 with 5888 CUDA Cores is almost 6 times faster with a score of 140,484 points.
Obviously, the GPU is not optimized at all and there is still a lot of work ahead to polish these rough diamonds, and it is that after seeing the performance of the Intel Iris Xe MAX, we are sure that Intel reaches the market of dedicated GPUs to search do harm to its rivals, and more if we consider that this GPU is monolithic with a single tile, there are models of 2 tiles (1024 EUS) and 4 tiles (2048 EUs), that is, we will have GPUs with up to 16,384 cores, almost nothing.
