Intel's gaming-focused Xe DG2 GPU is expected to release next year, and could bring some more variety to our currently two-branded best graphics card guide, if its performance is up to scratch.
The card is expected to come with up to 512 execution units at a rumoured cost somewhere between $400 and $600, and this top-end model looks like it has the capability to trounce high-end cards like Nvidia's RTX 3070 and AMD's RX 6800 if a new video from Moore’s law is dead is anything to go by. The footage includes photos of a Xe DG2 engineering sample, which is purportedly the best one Intel has to offer.
With a dual-fan design, we also get a glimpse at an eight and six pin power connector, which suggests the GPU will use somewhere between 225W and 275W of power. For reference, Nvidia's RTX 3070 maxes out at 220W, with AMD's RX 6800 rated for 250W. The YouTuber also claims that in the DG2's current form, the performance fits somewhere between the 3070 and 3080.
