Intel “Unintentionally” Leaks A number of Subsequent-Gen CPUs & GPUs In Check Drivers: DG3 ‘Elasti’ GPUs, DG1 Codenames, Meteor Lake, Arrow Lake, Lunar Lake

Written by Jeff Lampkin

Intel has unintentionally leaked a number of upcoming CPU and GPU codenames inside its newest drivers for the eleventh Gen NUC. The drivers reveal codenames and branding for upcoming GPUs such because the DG3 ‘Elasti’ discrete, branding for ARC Alchemist DG2 graphics playing cards, and CPU codenames corresponding to Meteor Lake, Arrow Lake, & Lunar Lake

The tweet reveals that it was launched on 12/7/2021, however clicking the hyperlink to Intel’s web site, the discharge date of the driving force is 12/14/2021. KOMACHI_ENSAKA continues to interrupt down what the discharge is previous to this precise tweet.

Upon investigating the Twitter consumer’s account, on September twenty fourth, the consumer posed the query in a tweet, “If Ponte Vecchio is PVC, Arctic Sound is ATS, and ELG is heck?” A couple of months handed, after which posed a comply with as much as the tweet, persevering with to interrupt the code of what ELG may very well be.

KOMACHI_ENSAKA is referring to the DG3 GPU household extpecting to be utilized by the Arc Battlemage desktop and future cell GPUs.

An hour in the past was when the invention was discovered. The consumer found that “Elasti” DG is what was being referenced with the moniker “ELG,” and deduced that because of the driver numbers ending in “9999” had been referencing that this new driver is a “testing driver,” earlier than posting the highest tweet. This driver was to not see the general public eye as of but, however is now out there on Intel’s web site.

“Elasti” is an inner codename that was given by Intel for an unreleased DG3 GPU collection. The motive force additionally helps a number of built-in GPUs featured on Intel’s next-gen CPUs corresponding to Raptor Lake, Meteor, Arrow Lake, and Lunar Lake. Once more, not one of the GPUs have launched on the time of this writing.

Nevertheless, DG3 was initially found by YouTuber Moore’s Legislation is Useless in Might 2023 throughout a dialogue on the Intel Xe-HPG PCB for DG2 GPU household, the place he had launched photos of the DG2 GPU, and had additionally found that DG3 (Elasti) could be the anticipated successor of the DG2 household.

Within the configuration recordsdata for the driving force, the next CPUs are revealed in tandem with the System PCI IDs:

  • Raptor Lake-S (RPLS)
  • Meteor Lake (MTL)
  • Arrow Lake (ARL)
  • Lunar Lake (LNL)

Intel’s NUC Package eleventh Gen driver at the moment lists two totally different DG3 GPUs, giving customers a sign that the brand new GPU remains to be in growth. Along with these, Videocardz has additionally found a pile of ARC Alchemist GPUs listed inside their newest graphics driver ( which embody:

  • Intel (R) Arc (TM) A380 Graphics Household.
  • Intel (R) Arc (TM) A350 Graphics Household.
  • Intel (R) Arc (TM) A370M Graphics Household.
  • Intel (R) Arc (TM) A350M Graphics Household.
  • Intel (R) Iris (R) Xe A200M Graphics Household.

It seems like this driver (launched 2 days in the past), solely lists two DG3 GPUs so far. This means that the DG3 remains to be removed from being prepared.
