New details on Intel’s upcoming DG2 graphics cards have surfaced on the Geekbench database. Two upcoming Xe-HPG versions were found, one with 256 EUs paired with an Intel Alder Lake CPU and a 96 EU GPU with another Alder Lake 14-core processor.
It’s not clearly stated that these are the DG2 GPUs, but considering the number of EUs and that both are based on Intel’s Gen12 GPU architecture, it looks like it’s safe to assume that these two are indeed DG2 GPUs. The one with 256 EUs (execution units) is almost certainly a dedicated graphics card, but the 96 EU one could possibly be the iGPU for an Intel Alder Lake mobile processor.

The listings also give us some details about the specifications of the processor and of each GPU. The Alder CPU, mounted on a Socket 1744 FCBGA mobile socket, packed 24MB of L3 cache, 4MB of L2 cache, and about 1MB of L1 cache and reached 4.0GHz clock speeds. The clock speed readings may have been affected due to the CPU’s hybrid nature.
As for the GPUs, the 96 EU SKU was clocked at 1.2GHz and had 1.5GB of video memory, scoring 6516 on the OpenCL benchmark. The 256 EU SKU featured a 1.4GHz clock speed and was equipped with 6GB of video memory, allowing it to score 18482 in the OpenCL benchmark. Comparing these scores, the DG2- 96EU GPU performs similarly to a GTX 460 and the DG2-256EU at the same level as the GTX 1050.
KitGuru says: These scores should not indicate final performance numbers. After all, we are still months away from the release of the DG2 GPUs, so we expect to see these numbers increase significantly.
