Intel Ponte Vecchio is registered in the EEC and enters alpha phase

Intel Ponte Vecchio has been recently registered with the EEC. Interestingly, Ponte Vecchio is referred to as an AIC or add-in card – which means it is in the standard AIC format used by today’s GPUs instead of a test card.

An interesting development can also be seen in the archives. They begin with a pre-alpha version of the Ponte Vecchio, then rise continuously from CAP “V2” to “CAP “V5”. It seems that Intel is making constant progress and already has 4 iterations (pre-alpha, GAPV2, GAPV3, GAPV4, and GAPV5) with the pre-alpha prototype of the GPU.

According to speculation, GAPV5 means for example Graphics, Alpha, Ponte Vecchio version 5.0, the rest of the letters that make up the nomenclatures are more difficult to decipher.

Intel’s chief architect, Raja Koduri, previously called the Xe GPU they were building the “father of all GPUs”. Considering that Ponte Vecchio is the enterprise-class GPU designed to build annoying supercomputers, and a successor to the current HP Xe line, it is clear that it will be even more powerful than the “father of all GPUs”.

Intel has confirmed that its 7nm Ponte Vecchio GPU will be launched in the 4th quarter of 2021.
