Intel Performance Comparisons
Intel has released some early performance numbers for their new SoC, comparing it to systems using older Intel CPUs with Nvidia Graphics. Below is a use-case that compared Intel's i7 4720Hq with a GTX 950M to an Intel 8th Generation processor with a Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics processor.
This comparison gives Intel a significant lead, which when combined with the power and spatial saving offered by Intel new unit makes this product extremely compelling.
This second comparison compares this same unit with an RX Vega GL graphics chip to a newer Intel system with an i7 8550U and a GTX 1050 Graphics card, with the new Intel SoC offering a 10-40% performance advantage.
Please note that Vermintide 2 has not been released, so the game's relative performance could change with additional optimisations and development time.
The comparison below compares a three-year-old notebook with an i7 4720HQ and a GTX 960M GPU with a system with an 8th Generation Intel core processor with an RX Vega M GH graphics unit, delivering an impressive performance gain in gaming applications.
This SoC seems ideal for 1080p 60FPS gameplay, provided users are willing to tinker with their graphical settings a little.
Things remain impressive when this new unit is compared to a Nvidia GTX 1060 MaxQ based system, with the all-Intel (well, arguably Intel/AMD) system offering a notable performance advantage. Not bad for a CPU/GPU combo in a single package.
