Today on the market of processors with integrated graphics, the situation is very strange. On the one hand, we have quite a very powerful gaming CPU Intel Kaby Lake G, mobile Intel graphics Iris Graphics Plus 655, which is also something, and a cluster of hybrid AMD processors for mobile and desktop segments.
But really most people don’t even know about the existence of these solutions Intel. Kaby Lake G CPU with powerful graphics Vega very rare and expensive, but mobile CPU with Iris graphics Plus Graphics 655 are also uncommon, and laptops with them are Oh how much.
The result is the actual dominance of AMD with its APU for the mobile segment, and table. But maybe soon the situation will change. First let me remind you, not long ago, Intel moved Coduri Raja — former chief graphics architect of AMD. Shortly after Intel officially announced the return to the market of discrete graphics cards in 2020. But I guess Koduri will help Intel PEEN and integrated graphics.
Our database SiSoft Sandra appeared unnamed Intel processor with Intel graphics Gen11 LP UHD Graphics, that is graphics of the 11th generation. Now used generation Gen9.5. Judging by early reports, this generation of GPUs will appear in the Ice Lake processors, which were supposed to come out next year, but now about Intel it’s hard to say for sure. So, this unnamed CPU has a graphics core of a new generation with 64 CU blocks that contain 512 stream processors. You understand, now most mobile and desktop Protsiv UHD Graphics a Intel 630 with 24 blocks of the CU. That is, if the tested CPU refers to some sort of conventional ruler, we will have almost a threefold increase in stream processors! And if you add a clear improvement in the architecture, it should be a blast.
But there is a possibility that the tested CPU will refer to the same range, which includes mobile processors with Intel Iris Graphics GPU Plus 655. Then we have an increase of approximately 30%, which is also good. In General, there is a chance that next year Intel will make AMD a real competitor in the segment of hybrid processors that we are all just at hand.
