Intel's new desktop graphics cards will not work on AMD systems


Intel recently unveiled its first Iris Xe desktop graphics cards, but we won’t see these models on systems powered by AMD hardware. While Nvidia and AMD desktop GPUs work in tandem with different Intel and AMD processors, Intel’s new desktop GPU is currently a little more limited.

Intel official confirms that Iris Xe add-in card will be able to be combined with 9th generation (Coffee Lake-S) and 10th generation (Comet Lake-S) Intel Core desktop processors, as well as motherboards with Intel B460, H410, B365, and H310C chipset, and will also be sold as part of pre-installed systems.

These restrictions make sense, given that these first Intel desktop GPUs target system integrators that will incorporate them into pre-created systems, so they are not intended to be ordered online. Also, graphics cards are not created for gaming systems, although Intel is working on a Xe-HPG architecture that will at some point compete with AMD / Nvidia models in the field of gaming as well.
