In a brand new commit printed on GitHub, Intel may need confirmed ray tracing help for his or her Meteor Lake CPUs with Xe-HPG TGPU.  The Intel 14th Gen Meteor Lake CPUs are scheduled for launch in 2023 and can include a spread of latest options, together with model new hybrid cores, built-in graphics utilizing tiled- designs, and a VPU accelerator which we talked about in our final protection.

Intel Meteor Lake CPUs With TGPU Design Reportedly Comes With Ray Tracing & FP64 Help But Lacks XMX Units

Based on an in depth report printed by Coelacanth-Dream, it appears just like the GPU featured on the Intel Meteor Lake CPUs is detected as a Xe-HPG product inside IGC (Intel Graphics Compiler). Contemplating that, we are able to assume that it is going to be utilizing the identical structure as the present DG2 or Alchemist GPUs however that is not totally the case.

The Meteor Lake GPU which is also called tGPU (Tiled-GPU) doesn’t help DPAS (Dot Product Accumulate Systolic) directions executed by means of the XMX items as a result of it reportedly isn’t geared up with these. In a earlier report, we lined how Intel’s Meteor Lake CPU’s graphics unit would lack XMX, leading to decrease feature-level help for applied sciences equivalent to XeSS however it should as a substitute function partial FP64 help, one thing that is been lacking in Intel iGPUs for the previous few generations.

The extra attention-grabbing element is that the TGPU (Xe-MTL) on the Intel Meteor Lake CPUs is reportedly going to return with hardware-level raytracing help. The TGPU is alleged to supply the identical degree of ray-tracing help as Alchemist and Ponte Vecchio GPUs since there isn’t any change within the design, a minimum of so far as ray tracing is anxious.

Relating to help for HW ray tracing on Meteor Lake GPUsIGC/AdaptorCommon/RayTracing/PrologueShaders.cpp , itIGFX_METEORLAKE is believed that they help it due to the addition of .

Apart from that, within the code half that determines his HW ray tracing help, it appears that evidently Meteor Lake GPU helps it in addition to Alchemist / DG2 and Ponte Vechhio as a result of there isn’t a change.

Intel’s Meteor Lake CPU tiled-GPU will not be the primary built-in graphics chip to supply help for ray-tracing. AMD has been providing it for nearly a yr now with their Ryzen 6000 “Rembrandt” APUs that function RDNA 2 iGPUs. This will probably be Intel’s first ray-tracing-enabled built-in graphics however we hope that some partial XeSS or AI-level upsampling help is added. As we have now seen with AMD’s APUs, applied sciences equivalent to FSR 2.0 can actually assist ship playable FPS in gaming titles and that may be actually superior for cellular avid gamers.
