According to an obscure Taiwan tech news post, Intel has been having yield issues with their own 10nm line. Intel’s own 14nm and 22nm lines are loaded to capacity which makes it difficult to get very many Xe devices made for a product launch this fall.

Intel will be holding its first GPU trials with the DG1 this year and this is a graphics card that is based on the 10nm process. The DG1 will have 96 EU which will be 768 cores, with a base frequency of 1GHz, an acceleration frequency of 1.5GHz, and 1MB. Secondary buffer memory and 3GB display memory, maximum power consumption is 25W. In terms of external performance, the Xe-based DG1 alone will be between Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1650.

Although DG1 positioning is not high-end, there will be new generations of DG2 independent display GPU products in the future. It is estimated that DG2 will be a high-performance GPU. 

Intel has elected to tray the 7nm line or possibly the 5nm line at TSMC as they have more available capacity along with more experience with graphic card development.

More on the Intel discrete graphics will be posted as it becomes available.
