Intel announced its Iris Max “DG1” graphics card for select processors and motherboards a few days back, with ASUS and Colorful supposedly being the first board partners. This GPU which is basically the integrated graphics from Tiger Lake slapped with LPDDR4 memory and higher clock speeds is already out in the notebook market.
The desktop variant represents Intel’s first push in the desktop graphics card market since Larabee. It’s more symbolic than practical. Regardless, the fact that Colorful distanced itself from the new Xe GPU just a day after the announcement may be a bit dismaying for Intel.
We’ll update this post if we hear more on this topic.
