Intel has maintained a high level of confidentiality since the announcement of the Xe solo project. Previously, the company has gained a lot of market share through the "core graphics card" integrated with CPU.Looking to the future, Intel also plans to attract entry-level games or enthusiasts through its first dedicated graphics processing unit (DG1).Interestingly, this has been strongly suggested in the documents leaked by the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) recently.

It is said that one of the major features of the Xe architecture is that it can be extended to mobile and desktop platforms. This means that Intel will not redevelop another architecture specifically for mobile GPU, but will consider both desktop and mobile platforms at the same time.
In the documents leaked by EEC, it can be seen that Intel Xe DG 1 has 96 execution units (EU), which is expected to be officially announced soon.
In fact, Chris pirillo, Intel's chief community advocate, confirmed this in a tweet. The negative rumors that the product, which is still in the experimental stage, has encountered many difficulties and may even be cut off, have been denied.
Interestingly, there are reports that Intel will continue to launch DG2. In view of this, the naming method of "DG" series is likely to be just a temporary placeholder, and the finished product is likely to be changed to another name.
If Intel retains the same design principle for DG1 as its mobile HD / UHD Graphics core graphics card, consumers are expected to usher in 96 × 8 / 768 coloring units.
Given Intel's first unique positioning entry level, it is unlikely to have 96 × 16 x 1536 coloring units. In addition, Intel Tiger Lake chips are said to have 96 execution units (based on Gen12 Xe Graphics).)

Recently, it was reported that the DG1 GPU with a thermal design power consumption of 25W has a performance improvement of 25% compared with tiger Lake chip, and Intel is expected to adopt attractive pricing, which will help it quickly seize the entry-level market.
