Six variations of the Intel Xe-HPG (High-Performance Gaming lineup)
Nothing concrete is known about Xe-HPG lineups- or how many AIC partners are signed up. Heck, even the names of these model variations are not known, yet. This will be Intel’s first gaming graphic discrete graphics cards. Irrespective of how it performs, a third discrete GPU supplier is healthy in the long run. That puts more pressure on AMD Radeon as Nvidia is enjoying a much longer consistency in best selling options. Factors such as low power consumption, heat, multiple AIC partners and user’s seamless experience play a major role in purchasing decisions. AMD Radeon still doesn’t have anything to compete with NVENC encoding which is usually favoured heavily by video and livestreaming content makers. However, both GPU chip makers have stifled the supply of chips resulting in ridiculous price gouging. So one would like to see Intel Xe-HPG nudge everyone in place.
