This is about the same level as the Radeon 780M
Intel Meteor Lake processors can take away the title of the most powerful iGPU in the segment from the Ryzen 7000. We heard this from various sources, and now we can try to confirm or refute it, based on the first tests.
The Core Ultra 7 155H processor containing the top-end iGpU with 8 Xe cores has been tested on Geekbench. This is far from the best GPU test, but it’s worth remembering that the graphics core in Meteor Lake is based on the same architecture as the current Arc Alchemist graphics cards. And these are opportunities for a more interesting comparison.
Not even close to the GTX 1650 Ti yet.
So, the new CPU scores 27,249 points in the OpenCL test. It is most correct to compare with Intel Arc, and here we can note that the mobile Arc A350M scores 26,580 points, that is, almost the same. If we try to find any comparisons of the participants we are interested in, it turns out that the Radeon 780M is approximately at the same level. Yes, specifically in OpenCL it is much faster, but in games it is about the same as the Arc A350M.
So, it’s not even clear yet whether the Meteor Lake iGPU will be able to beat the Radeon 780M, let alone beat the GTX 1650 Ti and get closer to the 35W RTX 3050 Laptop, as some leaks have claimed. However, full-fledged tests will put everything in its place.
