Intel Graphics 4-Cores iGPU (Arc)

Intel Graphics 4-Core

The Intel Graphics iGPU with 4 cores is an integrated graphics card based on the Xe LPG architecture (similar to the dedicated Arc GPUs, but with a focus on efficiency). It offers 4 Xe cores (64 Xe vector engines), 4 ray tracing units, 4 samplers and 2 pixel backends.

In contrast to the more powerful variant with 8 cores in the H Meteor Lake CPUs, the small variant is not allowed to use the Arc name.

The iGPU supports DirectX 12 Ultimate (probably DX 12_2 like the desktop Arc GPUs). The graphics unit also supports XeSS AI Super Sampling.

The media engine of Meteor Lake is in the SOC tile and supports up to 8k60 10-bit HDR encode and decode of MPEG2, AVC, VP9, HEVC and AV1. The display engine is also in the SoC tile and supports HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 2.1 20G with up to 8K60 HDR.

The GPU Tile of the Meteor Lake chip is manufactured at TSMC in 5nm (5N process).
