Based on the same Xe-LP micro-architecture used for Intel Iris Xe graphics in 11th Gen Intel Core mobile processors, Intel has now launched Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics that has been designed for thin-and-light laptops. It is Intel’s first Xe-based discrete graphics processing unit (GPU) as part of the company’s strategy to enter the discrete graphics market. It also features Intel Deep Link technology as part of Intel Adaptix, support PCIe Gen 4 and caters to an emerging need for content creation performance in thin-and-light laptops.
In order to redefine the role of discrete graphics in thin-and-light laptops, Roger Chandler, vice president and general manager of Client XPU Product and Solutions in the Intel Architecture, Graphics and Software Group, said, “Iris Xe MAX graphics and Intel® Deep Link technology serve as examples of the kind of platform-level innovation that Intel plans to bring to market in the future as we execute to our scalable Xe roadmap.”
Furthermore, Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics is built on Intel’s 10nm SuperFin process. It also unveils Intel Deep Link technology that unlocks creativity in thin-and-light laptops by aggregating multiple processing engines and a common software framework and graphics driver.
Intel continues its innovation and leadership by combining 11th Gen Core mobile processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics and Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics to help enable new experiences, provide developers with access to a more open and common software framework, and simplify driver distribution and validation for customers.
According to the company, “Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics is available for Acer Swift 3x, Asus VivoBook Flip TP470 and Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2 in 1. These are the first devices to leverage 11th Gen Intel Core mobile processors, Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics and Intel Deep Link technology.”
Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics also provide great thin-and-light 1080p gaming on popular games. The tech giant is enhancing the game experience by delivering two new features:
- Game Sharpening
- Instant Game Tuning
These features will be available through the Intel Graphics Command Center. The 11th Gen Intel Core mobile processors paired with Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics deliver Additive AI to provide 7 times faster AI-based creation than similar laptops configured with third-party graphics. It also Hyper Encode for up to 1.78 times faster encoding as compared to a high-end desktop graphics card.
The company further asserted that Intel is on the path to improve the visual computing experience for billions of people as it continues to ramp up Xe architecture products and software initiatives, with the Xe-LP based Intel Server GPU shipping this year and Xe-HP and Xe-HPG products arriving in 2021.
