Intel is a year away from launching its own discrete graphics card but it has started to show where the company is currently headed in it. Intel has shown off some early designs of its GPU which will arrive in 2020, in a GDC 2019 keynote.
From the design where the sharp lines and minimal styling is used, we can tell that Intel might be avoiding the unpleasant RGB flair present on some game oriented cards.
The fan we found in many other reference designs, the first design uses the typical blower fan. The first iteration of discrete graphics card they showed looks similar to Intel’s blue rectangle cards that the company have shown in the past, but with a housing that would look better through a glass side panel. If we look at the back side, there is a full backplate.
Moreover, from the back, you can see a glimpse of what looks like three full-size DisplayPort outputs and one HDMI port, this won’t be final and could change before the final release, the HDMI spec and DisplayPort version used will be more important than the number of ports.
Moving towards the fan design which is the most complex design by Intel. Quadrilateral scales surrounding a cooling fan before smoothing out into a semi-matte black finish. Looks like a fan breaking out of the housing.
The real performance of Intel’s upcoming discrete graphics card next year is unknown as the full specifications are not available yet. But as the year goes Intel may show some other details about their special product.
