Chipmaker Intel has launched the Iris Xe Max graphics, designed for thin-and-light laptops and now available from partners. Intel Iris Xe Max graphics is based on the same Xe-LP microarchitecture used for Intel Iris Xe graphics in 11th Gen Intel Core mobile processors.
Available starting today, the Intel Iris Xe Max graphics is available for Acer Swift 3x, Asus VivoBook Flip TP470 and Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2 in 1. As per Intel, these are the first devices to leverage 11th Gen Intel Core mobile processors, Intel Iris Xe Max graphics and Intel Deep Link technology.
The Irix Xe Max is Intel’s first Xe-based discrete graphics processing unit (GPU). Intel Iris Xe Max platforms feature Intel Deep Link technology as part of Intel Adaptix and support PCIe Gen 4.
Intel Iris Xe Max graphics, built on Intel’s 10nm SuperFin process, introduces Intel Deep Link technology for thin-and-light laptops. As per the chipmaker, Deep Link aggregates multiple processing engines through a common software framework to bring new capabilities and better performance to PCs.
Deep Link technology brings together processing engines under a common software framework, allowing software developers to boost content creation workload performance, says Intel. Applications can scale certain workloads across integrated and discrete graphics.
The first Deep Link-enabled applications use Intel Media SDK, Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit and Intel VTune Profiler. Developers will also be able to utilise Deep Link technology using Intel’s cross-architecture oneAPI toolkits.
