Intel’s DG2 graphics card is set to disrupt the GPU duopoly, going up against rival high-end models such as the AMD RX 6800 and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070. It looks like Intel is gearing up for a release soon, with the company’s game developer relations engineer Pete Brubaker tweeting a job opportunity for a similar role, while including that “DG2 is right around the corner”.
The job description mentions collaborating “closely with game developers optimising their code and enabling the adoption of new technology”, further suggesting this is related to an ever-closer release of the DG2 model.
Soon after this tweet, Igor’s Lab gave the scoop on Intel’s launch plans, claiming that the GPU will find its way into gaming laptops by the end of the year, although we won’t see desktop models until 2022 – so it could still be a number of months until we see Intel’s name appear on our best graphics card guide. The report lists five different SKUs, although it’s not clear which are destined to mobile or desktop PCs.
