We have finally got our first review of Intels discrete graphic cards. Thanks to our fellow YouTuber ETAPrime who managed to get a pre-build system from cyber power with Intel DG1 Graphic Card. The DG1 SDV isn’t available to everyone; in fact, it’s not available to anyone at all. The SDV model was given to software developers with a single goal in mind: to offer hardware support for software optimization of Intel’s Xe architecture. But the Xe architecture is more than just DG1 SDV and all those Tiger Lake mobile CPUs; there’s also a lesser-known Iris Xe model, which has been launched to the consumer market for the first time (sort of).

Unfortunately, the ASUS DG1 is only available in pre-built PCs, which is understandable given that Iris Xe is only supported by a limited number of motherboards. Because buying a prebuilt PC is the only way to get an ASUS DG1 graphics card, ETA Prime did just that by purchasing a 750 USD CyberpowerPC machine.

This system is powered by an Intel 11th Generation Core Rocket Lake-S (i5-11400F) processor without integrated graphics. The system is powered by an ASUS PRIME H410M-A/CSM motherboard, one of only two ASUS motherboards that can handle the DG1 GPU. ASUS DG1 (Iris Xe), which is based on the Xe-LP architecture, is in charge of graphics.
