Intel has introduced the first mobile discrete graphics card Iris Xe Max
Intel unexpectedly introduced the new Iris Xe Max discrete graphics card, which, interestingly, became Intel’s first discrete mobile solution of all time. Interestingly, it has almost the same set of features as the desktop version.
Unfortunately, the Iris Xe Max uses the same GPU that formed the basis of all Tiger Lake mobile processors. For example, there are the same 96 computing units, however, with a frequency of 1.65 GHz, and there is a dedicated LPDDR4x memory of 4 GB, which, however, has its drawbacks – the bandwidth is 68 GB / s. You should also pay attention to the support of the PCIe 4.0 standard, the technical process of 10 nanometers, as well as support for the DirectX 12.1, HDMI 2.0b, and DisplayPort 1.4 standards for connecting monitors.

Intel itself, as the main feature, has allocated support for Deep Link technology, although not fully explaining its essence. According to the official press release, it combines processing mechanisms within a common software environment, which greatly increases productivity when developing software to create content. There are also adaptive artificial intelligence capabilities that allow better rendering of content on both GPUs, and support for state-of-the-art encoding mechanisms.
Simply put, if the new laptops have a discrete and integrated Xe graphics card, they can be combined in work tasks, although it is unknown whether this will be implemented in games. We can mention the AMD Radeon Dual Graphics technology, which worked on a similar principle, though in games, not works tasks. New laptops with this video card are expected to go on sale today – Acer Swift 3x, Asus VivoBook Flip TP470, and Dell Inspiron 15 7000.
