In addition to announcing 5GHz i9-9900KS with full firepower, Intel also demonstrated the performance of integrated graphics cards in the next generation mobile platform processor Ice Lake-U, which is based on Intel's 10nm process, Sunny Cove core and built-in powerful Gen11 integrated graphics cards. Intel shares this information with many media today.
This is Intel's first graphics module to achieve 1 TeraFLOP computing power. Compared with the performance of the 9th generation Core Mobile Edition, 15W Ice Lake-U improved the average frame rate performance by 40% in the game test scenario.
Compared with the same AMD products, Intel said that it was almost impossible to find a 15W ADM APU in the device, and that virtually every device that could be found was running AMD high-performance mode. In order to make the test fair, Intel prepared an Ice Lake-U processor, equivalent to 25W TDP, and made a direct comparison. Basically, AMD's Vega 10 can tie with Intel's 11th generation.
For all the game performances in Intel's test method and AMD, the average is about 4-5%. Intel with lower power consumption can concentrate on the graphics and game performance in ultra-light notebooks, and provide a smooth 1080p experience for popular electronic competitive games.
The last set of data comes from Intel's variable rate shading (VRS), a feature recently introduced in DirectX 12. VRS is a technology that allows game developers to dynamically change the shadow resolution of the area on the screen, allowing developers to reduce the amount of pixel shading used to improve performance, which ideally has little impact on image quality. This is a new feature supported on Gen11 display chips, but it requires game support for this feature.
Intel said that in the ideal comprehensive test, they achieved 40% performance improvement with VRS enabled, while in the comprehensive test with VRS on and off, the additional performance made them higher than the equivalent AMD Ryzen system (the GPU of AMD currently does not support this function).
With the addition of AVX512, Intel's Ice Lake is also used as an AI CPU. Any software that can use AI can be equipped with acceleration algorithms to speed it up.
