Bad news for Nvidia, and is that the dedicated Intel Iris Xe MAX (Intel DG1) graphics have been seen by 3DMark benchmarking software with excellent performance, and this quickly translates into all laptops with an Intel CPU Tiger Lake along with these graphics do not require an Nvidia GeForce GPU to offer good performance in the graphics section.
It should be remembered that the Intel Iris Xe MAX uses a 10nm SuperFin manufacturing process offering 96 EUs that translates into a total of 768 Shaders (cores) that work at a frequency of 1650 MHz accompanied by 4 GB of LPDDR4X RAM memory that, together with a 256-bit memory interface, it gives us a bandwidth of 68 GB / s. All this data translates into a score of 1826 points in the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark, and 6611 points in the 3DMark Fire Strike.
For reference, the Nvidia GeForce MX450 moves in the 1680 / 6833 points, so that Intel could get all the companies that supplied CPUs Tiger Lake simplify development and save costs also integrating themselves Nvidia graphics.
To give us a day, even the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile lags behind with 1603.5 / 5435.5 points. and the Nvidia GeForce 1050 GTX Ti MAXQ does not improve things much with their 2261 / 6688 points and much higher price. AMD here neither clicks nor cuts, it does not have dedicated graphics solutions for the input range.
Obviously, in games things could vary too much in favor of Nvidia depending on the support, but Intel has been working at full speed for months paving the way to its first high-end gaming GPUs for next year, so everything seen can only to get better.
