The Intel Iris Xe DG1 graphics card has made a surprising appearance. A US retailer began listing a CyberPowerPC listing, which appears to be the very first system to feature Intel’s desktop graphics card.
The system (via VideoCardz) is an entry-level gaming PC, priced at $750 and bundled with a keyboard and mouse. The main components include an Intel DG1 graphics card, an Intel Core i5-11400F processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 500GB NVMe SSD drive.
The Intel DG1 graphics card inside the system features 80 EUs (640 shading units) and 4GB of LPDDR4X memory on a 128-bit memory bus. For the GPU to work, an Intel B460, H410, B365, or H310C motherboard with a “special BIOS” is needed.
Despite looking like a rather basic gaming system, this desktop marks the entrance of the third competitor in the desktop graphics card market. Now with the DG1 heading into the hands of consumers, we can look ahead to the release of DG2, which should provide decent competition up against AMD and Nvidia.
