In a tweet announcing a job opportunity, an Intel game developer relations engineer has stated that the upcoming series of Intel gaming GPUs is “right around the corner”.
The tweet is from Pete Brubaker, who posted a job listing for another senior game developer relations engineer at Intel. The job description doesn’t tell us much about the DG2 gaming series, but if Intel is looking for employees such as this, it sure is for a reason. As these are the first mid and high-end gaming GPUs the company will release, there’s the chance to create new relations with other companies that previously didn’t make sense.
Come work with us at Intel! DG2 is right around the corner, it's about to get exciting.https://t.co/qKjzlcsXmK

Rumours point to the release of five Intel DG2 SKUs, ranging from 96 to 512EUs and 4GB to 16GB of GDDR6 memory. The flagship GPU, expected to come with 8GB or 16GB of memory, reportedly outperforms the RTX 3070.
We expect to see the DG2 GPUs hitting both the desktop and mobile market, but it’s still unclear if they will release at the same time. Intel has promised that DG2 GPUs would release by year’s end, but it has specified if it meant the desktop or the mobile variant.

KitGuru says: Intel DG2 gaming GPUs are on the way and will hopefully bring some new competition to the GPU market. The question is, can Intel improve the GPU stock situation, or will it run into the same problems as AMD and Nvidia?
