That Intel Xe DG1 GPU has appeared online for some time. The latest appearance in the comparison results confirms again previously held assumptions about entry-level performance. As is evident from the results, this discrete GPU which has not been announced from Intel outperforms all integrated or onboard GPUs, but is far from entry-level or budget graphics chips from NVIDIA or AMD.
Intel’s first discrete graphics card that packs GPU Xe DG1 has become a benchmark in 3DMark. GPU Xe DG1 offers performance that exceeds all integrated GPUs or iGPU available but is incompatible even with entry-level discrete graphics cards from competitors.
Separate Intel Xe DG1 GPU Benchmarking Results Shows Very Early Level Performance:
The discrete Intel Xe DG1 GPU for laptops has been seen in the Fire Strike benchmark. Interestingly, none of the specifications mentioned in the benchmark results were leaked. However, GPU Xe is compared to Core i9-9900K. Since the 9thth-Gen Intel Core i9-9900K does not display any GPU Xe, it is very clear that the test board consists of a discrete GPU Xe DG1 that must be displayed on mobility products.
In terms of performance, the Intel Xe DG1 GPU graphics card scored 5,960 points. The score is almost identical to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950. However, a more realistic comparison is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680. Comparing the Intel XE DG1 GPU with products from AMD, Intel’s offer is below the ranks of Polaris from AMD. AMD Radeon RX 560 score is 200-300 points higher than GPU Xe DG1.
As previously reported, Intel’s first generation discrete graphics solution is for entry-level systems. The latest comparison results only confirm the same thing. The result should offer some ideas about what to expect from the more optimal GPU Xe DG1 version that will be embedded in notebooks and laptops. Portable computing devices with Intel Xe DG1 discrete GPUs are expected to arrive in the fourth quarter of 2020.
It is important to note that all Xe DG1 graphics boards are Unit Tests or SDV (Software Development Tools). This basically means the GPU won’t get a retail launch. In other words, the Intel Xe DG1 GPU is primarily a mobility GPU. This possible graphics-level solution is iGPU on a laptop or GPU integrated on Intel’s Tiger Lake CPU.
Intel (Xe) DG1 ‘is still slower than the Radeon RX 560 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti https://t.co/n319NbXBlK

Intel Plans to Enter the iGPU Market and Compete With Early-Level Products from NVIDIA and AMD?
Based on previous reports and benchmarking results, it is very possible Intel plans to enter the iGPU market, and can start from the bottom. This means Intel’s first iGPU will compete with mainstream laptop GPUs from AMD and NVIDIA. This should give Intel enough time and experience to build a second generation Xe DG2 GPU, which should perform better from the first generation.

Intel’s main competition is the AMD Vega GPU which has been refined on the 7nm Process Node for APU Renoir Ryzen 4000 Series mobility based on the ZEN 2 architecture. On the other hand, Intel will also compete with NVIDIA’s entry-level MX iGPU line based on Pascal Architecture, with Turing’s architecture-based ranks in development.
