Interesting. It uses an API to seamlessly make multiple GPUs appear as one GPU to the OS and they will scale it up. It can turbo boost to higher clock speeds with an AIO cooler. Power hungry though.

The 'e' denotes how many GPUs. X2, X4, X8 etc

Those three make no sense together.

No direct VRAM ( only Optane/XPoint ). TSV and Optane/XPoint together makes about zero sense. TSV between packages even less so.

The bandwidth is Area 51 like if talking bi-section bandwidth. (as opposed to just globbing some number together. )


Some non April Fool's ( at least if Intel doesn't bork the development ) Xe context:
