Integrated GPUs have made some serious lately and the trends continue with new leaks of Intel’s Iris Plus Graphics 940. While we don’t get to see Intel’s discrete GPU performance, but their upcoming iGPU – expected to be launched under Sunny Cove – Gen 11, made an appearance on the internet.
These chips are designed to offer 1TFLOPs of computing performance, the double of what is offered now.
Intel’s Gen 11 will feature a new 3D pipeline with 64 Execution units(GT2), as compared to 24(GT2) in Gen 9. They will also feature 3MB of L3 cache and twice the FP16 rate.
The leaked Gen 11 benchmarks show massive performance improvements over Gen 9. The improvement is as high as 132.07% in the ALU2 test, and 76% average performance gain.
Gen 11 blows the Ryzen with integrated Vega 10 out of the water with a 63% overall performance improvement.
Vega 11 however, outperforms Gen 11 with slight 1.69% performance advantage. After this kind of performance by Intel’s iGPU lineup, it will be exciting to see what their discrete ‘Xe’ graphics cards will have to offer when they
Ice Lake-U and Ice Lake-Y however, will be the first chips to feature Iris Plus Graphics 940, will arrive later this year.
