A new Geekbench listing has revealed multiple aspects about the Xe-HP Neo, Intel's high-powered graphics chip. The listing not only shows the volume of compute units that the chip has, but shows the volume of cores, clock speeds and built-in VRAM.

Intel may have just introduced its first dedicated GPU, the Iris Xe Max, but the company has much more up its sleeve. As the company announced at Architecture Day in August, it plans to release at least Xe-HP and Xe-HPG graphics chips, which are intended for data centres and consumer gaming, respectively.

Now, a benchmark of the former has been published on Geekbench. Marked as the 'Intel Corporation WHITLEY', the 'Intel Gen12HP HD Graphics NEO' has 512 compute units (CUs) and 6 GB of RAM. Intel has already announced that it will release two and four tile variants of the Xe-HP platform with 1,024 CUs and 2,048 EUs, so this 512 CU edition is probably the entry-level SKU. Additionally, Intel has stated that it will pair its data centre GPUs with HBM2 VRAM, rather than GDDR6.

Geekbench reports that the Xe-HP NEO clocks up to 1.15 GHz, which is slightly lower than Intel's reported peak clock speeds of 1.3 GHz. We also know that Intel is using its 10 nm SuperFin technology to manufacture its Xe-HP chips and that its entry-level SKU will be capable of up to 10.5 TFLOPs (FP32). The Xe-HP NEO also seemingly has 4,096 shading units.

However, we would not draw performance comparisons between the Xe-HP NEO and any commercially available cards. Not only are we probably looking at pre-production hardware, but we are probably looking at a chip running on unoptimised drivers. Hence, we would expect final cards to score significantly more than the 25,475 in Geekbench 5.2.5 OpenCL than the Xe-HP NEO has here.
