Intel Tiger Lake CPUs can run AAA games

by on22 May 2020

No discrete GPU required

The integrated graphics in the upcoming Intel 11th Gen Tiger Lake-U processors could offer twice the performance of Ice Lake making AAA games possible without a dicrete GPU.

Recently leaked 3DMark Fire Strike benchmark results obtained by Notebookcheck show performance improvements of 20 percent all the way up to nearly 100 percent for the Intel Xe Gen12 graphics in Tiger Lake when compared with the Iris Plus graphics found in Ice Lake chips.

While discrete graphics cards are under no real threat for gamers or other graphics-intensive users, it is a significant improvement and shows Intel is starting to take its graphics more seriously.

Some of the specific test results included an Intel 11th Gen Core i3 Tiger Lake processor showing a 20 per cent graphics performance increase over the Core i7 Ice Lake processor.

The biggest disparity was noted for the 15W Core i5 Tiger Lake processor, which delivered just shy of two times the GPU performance of the Iris Plus with another 15 percent for the 28W Core i5 Tiger Lake.
