Intel Xe desktop graphics cards

Intel entered the classic, desktop graphics card market, and the company began shipping the first Iris Xe (codenamed DG1) models to OEM systems. Graphics cards are designed for mainstream users and small and medium enterprises.

Although these are not gaming GPUs that would compete with the AMD Radeon RX 6000 or Nvidia RTX 30 series, the video cards show Intel's clear intentions to compete with these companies.

This announcement comes after the introduction of Iris Xe Max graphics cards for the laptop market, and Iris Xe desktop graphics chips offer a number of the same features and specifications as notebook models.

Iris Xe desktop graphics cards come with 80 EU (execution units), offer the same encode/decode capabilities as laptop models, support Intel DL-Boost, and advanced features such as Variable Rate Shading and VESA Adaptive Sync.

Intel has confirmed that Iris Xe will create desktop graphics cards with two hardware partners - Asus and Colorful, which will sell them to system creators for future pre-created computers.

Intel Iris Xe desktop graphics cards have 4GB of LPDDR4X memory, support for AV1 video decoding, HDR, and 12-bit video.
