New Intel Core i7 with Iris Xe graphics beat AMD Ryzen 7 4800U in games and benchmarks
Intel earlier this month unveiled its 11th generation branded mobile processor line with integrated Iris Xe graphics. The results of testing one of the new products in synthetic and popular games have already appeared on the network. The Core i7-1185G7 model was compared with AMD's flagship solution, equipped with twice as many cores and a Radeon RX Vega 8 GPU - and in many cases, the result was not in favor of the "red" chip.
Intel's quad-core product showed a clear advantage when testing in single-core scenarios in Cinebench, even in battery-saving mode. When launching the multi-core discipline, the AMD processor predictably took the lead.
Game testing in resolution up to 1080p inclusive showed a significant gap between the Intel processor and its predecessor and a stable advantage over the "red" rival. So, when Rise of The Tomb Raider was launched (Full HD, low graphics settings) without a discrete graphics card, the chip was able to "squeeze" 54 frames per second, while the Ryzen 7 4800U and Core i7-1065G7 achieved 41 and 26 fps, respectively.
In addition to transferring new processor models to Intel Iris Xe graphics, the company also announced a series of desktop gaming graphics cards, which are expected to debut next year.
