Intel's graphic technology debuts that will change an industry

 


The technology is so intelligent that it switches to integrated graphics in case no major graphics power is needed. Intel says games like Dota 2 are faster on Iris Xe and Xe Max graphics than on the Nvidia MX350.

Intel introduced dedicated graphics card technology in early October and is now becoming available to everyone.

The chip designer said the first laptops with Intel Xe graphics are available on the Acer Swift 3X, ASUS VivoBook Flip TP470 and Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2n1.

The Iris Xe Max is Intel's response to the low-end graphics segment commonly found in slim-design laptops. The company promises excellent 1080p gaming for very popular titles like Hitman 2 and Metro Exodus.

However these new graphics are not just for gaming. A technology called Deep Link integrated into Iris graphics splits tasks between the integrated graphics of Tiger Lake and Iris Xe Max providing performance that typically requires a dedicated desktop graphics card.

Intel promises double the video encoding that an RTX 2080 offers.

Iris Xe Max can dedicate all its processor power to applications which are based on conventional processing.

What about graphics technology for desktops? Intel promised something big in the first half of 2021. The graphics technology market has been dominated for years by two major players like Nvidia and AMD and Intel has always been synonymous with slow graphics cards as we face a rotation today.
