Intel may be about to lose a major chunk of its CPU share with the advent of the 7nm Zen 2 based Ryzen 3000 processors, but that doesn’t mean the company can’t explore other shores. This holds especially true for the GPU market where competition has waned, and most gamers are complaining about the “NVIDIA tax” and more recently, looking at the Radeon VII, AMD doesn’t seem to be doing much about it. Intel’s Xe graphics cards might just be wake up call these old rivals need. Before the discrete GPUs from Raja Koduri and his team make an appearance, we’ll be seeing the Gen11 Ultra HD Graphics (
We’ve already shared a good deal of benchmarks of both the Ice Lake CPU as well as the Gen11 iGPUs, but today the top-end Gen11 GT2 that’ll power the Intel Iris Plus Graphics 950 has been spotted on SiSoftware. The said chip will be Intel’s most powerful graphics processor till date with a total of 64 Cores or Execution Units (EU) clocked at 1.1GHz, along with 512KB of shared local memory and 1MB of L2 cache (as per the test).
The Intel Iris Plus 950 iGPU scores 478.81Mpix/s in the Graphics Processing (GP) test and gets a rank of #2,478 in the SiSoft database, making it faster than 93.45% of all the results. Like the Gen9
