The emergence of Intel in the gaming market is going to be a before and after in the industry, we will all see it and live it, we will look back at some point and it will be difficult for us to remember how things were. in 2021 Little is left and while there is no release date revealed, the leaks are starting to be seen more frequently, a symbol and a sign that we are close, very close to their arrival. What has been leaked today is nothing short of the best Intel is going to put on the table for gaming laptops, similar to the RTX 30 Mobile and AMD RX to use, what performance is getting- you ?
Geekbench 5 presents the world’s first Xe DG2-512
It’s as usual in Geekbench 5 where it’s new Alchemist Intel Xe DG2-512 (name not confirmed either) made an appearance. We had already seen his younger sisters pose in this sequel and even if they were not expected, all hopes remained in the hands of this new GPU.
Surprisingly, the leak indicates that we’re up against a GPU that will be included, predictably, with Tiger Lake-H processors, so it’s curious that it doesn’t appear in its first talk with Alder Lake by its side. That’s not to say that Intel doesn’t bundle them into select models, which is to be expected, but this time it did.
The processor selected in the notebook has been i7-11800H of 8 cores and 16 threads a 4.5 GHz, which comes with nothing less than 32 GB DDR4 RAM
Disappointing performance, crash, drive problems or …?
Pat Gelsinger’s statements this week have sparked optimism from buyers and shareholders, as Intel will squeeze NVIDIA and therefore logically AMD. Therefore, we will be careful when evaluating what has been disclosed.
And it is that despite a frequency of 1.8 GHz, 4096 shades, 16 GB of GDDR6 memory, bus from 256 bits and one TGP of only 120 watts, is Intel Xe DG2-512 it is far from being fast. It is true that it is a 85%
We are talking about twenty 34360 points in the OpenCL score, which leaves it at the level of a GTX 1650 or so and far from the more than 90,000 points achieved by the aforementioned NVIDIA RTX 3060 Mobile GPU.
What happens then? We don’t know, but there is some sort of guideline to follow, and it’s nothing more than consistently low scores for all models in the series, moving up in range yes, but still well below expectations. . Does Intel limit performance by TGP, by driver, or by vBIOS? What is certain is that they cannot play so little, especially because the move would be historic and would leave the Blues in a very bad position, especially when the CEO himself generated a minimum of expectations. It’s time to wait, we are close.
