Intel Xe-HP NEO GPU discovered with 4096 stream processors, clocked at 1.15 GHz

A mysterious Xe-HP NEO solution has just appeared. What is it? Intel’s Xe architecture was followed by discrete graphics: the Xe LP low-power lightweight Iris Xe MAX was released and is now available, the Xe HPG for the gaming market, two high-performance architectures for the data center market, and the top-of-the-line Xe HPC for high-performance computing will be ready next year. For several months we have known that Intel is working on a new generation of graphics chips known as Intel Xe.

This Xe-HP Neo from Intel appears in the benchmark database GeekBench 5, and we have a solution that is aimed at the professional market. To reposition it in the plans of the giant, it is a model of the Xe-HP family without the Arctic Sound Code. The second range is called Xe-HPG, G for “gaming”. The target axis will be the players.

Back to our chip, which is equipped with 512 execution units, i.e. 4,096 flow processors. In this respect, Intel plans to use up to four 512 EU “tiles”, which can display up to 160384 stream processors.

For this model, we find 6 GB VRAM probably from the HBM2. The benchmark reports a frequency of 1.15 GHz. The GPU scored 25,475 points in OpenCL tests, which is far from the performance of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3070 (140,484 points). Of course, Intel also has dual and quad-core packs, and if it can truly scale performance linearly, it will have no problem killing the RTX 3070, but that’s just the prevailing competitive style.

Fortunately, it is impossible at the moment to draw any conclusions from this, because it is certainly a technical sample.
