Intel List Peculiar Arc GPU Based Product on its Customer Centric ARK Site
According to Igor's Lab, Intel has listed a new product on its non-public ARK site that lists what appears to be a motherboard product with an Intel Arc GPU. The product listing is very peculiar, as it's listed as a graphics card, but the "family name" is DG2MB. It's also said to have a clock speed of 4 GHz, 16 MB of cache and a TDP of 200 W. None of this seems to add up in any sensible way and additional information provided by Igor, doesn't improve things, as the chip is using an FC-BGA16E packaging with a pin-count of 2660.
For those not familiar with Intel ARK, it's Intel's product specification website and there's a public version, as well as a version that only select Intel customers have access to and it's from the latter this information has been sourced. As to what this product could be, is anyone's guess at this point, but the MB in the model name suggests it might be some kind of embedded motherboard with an Intel CPU and GPU, possibly for some kind of NUC product.Continue Reading
