Through the Geekbench 5 benchmarking software, Intel’s first dedicated GPU of the last two decades has been seen, we are talking about the Intel Iris Xe Max, formerly known as Intel DG1, and which will only be available in laptops. This GPU offers 96 Execution Units (EUs) resulting in 768 Shaders @ 1.50 GHz (Turbo) along with 3 GB of dedicated GDDR6 memory.
Geekbench 5 is not a good benchmark to talk about graphics performance, but something is something, and it was there that it was seen with a score of 11,885 points, practically tying with the Nvidia GeForce MX330 with 384 CUDA Cores @ 1.59 GHz that it reached 11,162 points, which translates to a lead just 6.5 percent faster, but 16.4 percent lower than the Nvidia GeForce MX350 with 640 CUDA Cores @ 1.46 GHz (13,832 points).
|Nvidia GeForce MX350||13,832 points|
|AMD Radeon RX 500||12,584 points|
|Intel Iris Xe Max||11,885 points|
|Nvidia GeForce MX330||11,162 points|
Obviously, it is not a graphics for gamers, but it offers a great performance improvement compared to previous-generation graphics, and they provide more than enough performance for its market niche since we will basically find it in Ultrabooks, although it would be interesting to know the performance of these graphics combined with the iGPU integrated into the processor, as Intel revealed that they will be able to work in unison.
