We all know about Intel’s launch of discrete graphics card, called the Xe line-up, and we also know that they are going to be manufactured on Intel’s 10nm SuperFin process node. But now it looks like they are all set to manufacture their HPG lineup on TSMC’s bleeding edge 6nm process!
Reports coming out of Taiwanese based outlets seem to indicate that TSMC is confident in winning orders for Intel’s next-generation Xe-HPG GPUs. As reported by IThome (via @harukaze5719), Intel’s Xe-HPG GPUs will be produced at TSMC’s fabs, making use of their bleeding-edge fabrication technologies.
The Taiwan-based sources claim that Intel is likely to utilize TSMC’s 6nm process node for its gaming GPUs that will be competing against AMD’s RDNA 2 and NVIDIA’s Ampere GPU lineup by the time they hit the store shelves.
TSMC has been working on their 6nm process node which is said to offer upto 18% improvements in terms of logic density by using EUV. Also, the new chips are slated to come with Intel’s latest and best technologies: EMIB, CO-EMIB, and FOVEROS.
So what do you think about the new entry of Intel into the graphics card industry? Will it be up to the mark? Let us know in the comments below!
