Several Gen11 GPU Variants Referenced in Latest Intel Drivers
The most fresh model of Intel Graphics drivers which introduce the firm’s latest UWP-basically based mostly Graphics Picture Center app, veil one other secret in their INF. The file has pointers to dozens of variants and implementations of the firm’s subsequent-technology Gen11 built-in graphics structure, which we detailed in a latest article. Intel will implement Gen11 on two key processor microarchitectures, “Ice Lake” and “Lakefield,” though later down the line, the graphics technology would possibly well presumably trickle appropriate down to low-power Pentium Silver and Celeron SoC traces, too, with chips in accordance with the “Elkhart Lake” silicon.
There are 13 variants of Gen11 on “Ice Lake,” carved the teach of execution unit (EU) count, and LP (low-power) aggressive power management. The mainstream desktop processors in accordance with “Ice Lake,” which will almost certainly be least restrained in power-management, salvage the most much variants of Gen11 below the Iris Plus impress. Iris Plus Graphics 950 is the most much implementation, with all sixty four EUs enabled, and the ideal GPU clock speeds. This variant would possibly well presumably feature on Core i7 and Core i9 brands derived from “Ice Lake.” Next up, is the Iris Plus Graphics 940, with the same EU count, but seemingly decrease clock speeds, which would possibly well presumably feature all around the huge lineup of Core i5 SKUs. The Iris Plus 930 is available in two trims in accordance with EU count, of sixty four and forty eight, and would possibly well presumably seemingly be unfold all around the Core i3 lineup. Lastly, there is the Iris Plus 920 with 32 EUs, which would possibly well very smartly be chanced on in Pentium Gold SKUs. There are many SKUs branded “UHD Graphics Gen11 LP,” with EU counts ranging from 32 to sixty four.
