Intel unveiled its first external GPU ‘DG1’ with Xe graphics architecture.
Unveiled at CES 2020 Keynote, the DG1 was introduced with Intel’s next-generation mobile processor, Tiger Lake. The DG1 itself is an external GPU but can only be used with the processor.
In short, Tiger Lake’s built-in GPU and DG1 must be used together.
It’s designed to add the DG1 for gamers who feel the performance is lacking with the built-in GPU, so it’s not going to be a desktop model.
No specific performance or specs of the DG1 were announced, but a working demo with Destiny 2 was demonstrated. After the event, some media claimed that the release date of DG1 was 2021.
