Intel had already shown the Limited Edition in late March, publishing a video teaser in which, in addition to the features of the card, it reported an release scheduled for the end of the summer. The eSports competition represents the first time the GPU is immortalized live.
According to rumors, Intel’s solution should be based on ACM-G10 GPU with 32 Xe-core and 16GB of GDDR6 memory. The power supply is entrusted not only to the PCI Express slot, but also to two traditional PCIe connectors with 8 and 6 pins each.
As for performance, Intel has not yet released official data and the rumors that have occurred in recent months have not always been in agreement: we are talking about performance at worst similar to the RTX 3060 Ti and in the best case to the RTX 3070 Ti.
Drivers will certainly play a big role in driving performance up or down, an area that Intel has been working on for some time and probably the source of the slippage of more powerful solutions.
