Intel’s Xe-HPG DG2 GPU Performs Similar to NVIDIA & AMD

Unveiled earlier this month by Intel, the Xe-HPG DG2 GPU is going to be the new high-end model of the Iris Xe family, which in recent years has shown significant improvements. Showing good results in benchmark tests. The same was maintained in the recent launch, in which the Xe-HPG DG2 GPU matched some popular models on the market, such as NVIDIA GA104 and AMD Navi 22, for example.

The tests were carried out by an unknown user, but have leaked out by Twitter user TUM_APISAK. The results obtained during the comparison of two different SKUs, being the Intel Xe-HPG DG2 with 448 EU and the other 128 EU. It is important to emphasize that it was not informed in which program the comparison was made, therefore, we do not know which criteria were used.

In terms of performance, it was observed that the Xe-HPG DG2-448 EU presented a performance close to NVIDIA’s RTX 3070 model. While the 128 EU version had a 12% faster result than the GeForce GTX 1650 card, revealing that Intel has improved its technology in order to better position itself in the market.

Furthermore, the DG2 512 EU chip will be roughly the same size or slightly larger than the NVIDIA GA104 and AMD Navi 22 GPUs, making Intel more competitive if it reduces the price of its GPUs, as even with the advance the company is still surpassed by competitors.
