(Tech Mainstream) Designed for thin-and-light laptops, Intel recently launched Intel® Iris® Xe MAX graphics:

"It is Intel’s first Xe-based discrete graphics processing unit (GPU) as part of the company’s strategy to enter the discrete graphics market. Intel Iris Xe MAX platforms feature Intel® Deep Link technology as part of Intel® Adaptix™, support PCIe Gen 4 and address an emerging need for content creation performance in thin-and-light laptops."

Intel® Deep Link technology essentially "aggregates multiple processing engines through a common software framework to bring new capabilities and better performance to PCs." Deep link maximizes CPU performance by boosting artificial intelligence (AI) creation performance and takes industry leading encode to a new level. These features help unlock creativity in thin-and-light laptops. Among the Deep Link examples include:

"An additive AI capability that enables inferencing and rendering on both GPUs to accelerate content-creation workloads. A combination of industry-leading encode engines in each GPU through hyper encoding that allows the time to render out videos for reviewing or sharing."

The main attributes of combining 11th Gen Intel Core mobile processors and Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics include "Additive AI to provide 7 times faster AI-based creation than similar laptops configured with third-party graphics, and Hyper Encode for up to 1.78 times faster encoding than a high-end desktop graphics card." Another advantage to Deep Link’s Dynamic Power Share is 20% better CPU performance due to "power and thermal resources to be dedicated to the CPU when the discrete graphics is idle." Gamers also benefit from Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics including two new features, Game Sharpening and Instant Game Tuning.

You can currently find Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics in theAcer Swift 3x, Asus VivoBook Flip TP470 and Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2 in 1 devices. These devices include the 11th Gen Intel Core mobile processors, Intel Iris Xe MAX graphics and Intel Deep Link technology. Intel is providing two bundle promotions for creator applications and games:

"One bundle for 11th Gen Intel Core Processor-based systems will go live Nov 3; a second bundle exclusively for Intel Iris Xe MAX-based systems will be available through Amazon.com and other participating retailers."
