Intel GPU Architecture Mapped Out

Beyond3D revealed
the future Intel discrete graphics plans with slides from the Visual Computing
Group. The architecture is based on 10+ mini-cores that has 10mm2 die
size and 6.25W TDP each. Each core has 16-wide 512-bit vector unit capable of
executing VLIW instructions. 10 of such cores will be sharing at least 4MB of L2
cache and has a total die size at 140mm2 and 90W TDP. Performance
could hit 1.2TFlops. The slides also revealed some fixed functions units and a
high-bandwidth memory I/O. Most probably the first card will be pairing up with
GDDR5 memories to provide an off-die bandwidth of more than 150GB/s.
