Intel Rocket Lake Iris Xe GPU Benchmarked in 3DMark Time Spy, On Par With A GeForce GT 1030
Intel’s Rocket Lake CPUs have to do with a month away from launch but the 11th Gen ship has been leaking since in 2015. Today, we get to see brand-new criteria of the Rocket Lake Xe GPU which dripped out over at the Chinese video portal, Bilibili.
The Intel Rocket Lake CPU that the Iris Xe GPU was checked on is the Core i5-11500 which features 6 cores and 12 threads. The CPU includes a base clock of 2.70 GHz while the increase clock is unknown. The CPU was tested on an MSI Z590-A PRO motherboard which includes 32 GB of DDR4-3200 MHz memory.

The Intel Rocket Lake Iris Xe GPU consists of 32 Execution units or 256 cores. The motorist it is tested on is from early January 2021 and GPU-z can not get the specific requirements or clocks for it yet. The Iris Xe GPU was checked within a number of eSports titles and likewise 3DMark Time Spy. In Time Spy, the chip scored 1053 points within the graphics test which is a 52% increase over the UHD 630 graphics chip featured on the Comet Lake Core i5-10400.
This puts the Intel Iris Xe GPU on par with NVIDIA’s GeForce GT 1030 which scores around 1100-1200 points but, it is much slower than AMD’s Renoir APUs including Vega GPUs. The AMD Ryzen 7 4750G for comparison scores around 1600 points in the very same criteria.
It is likely that future launch chauffeurs for Intel’s Rocket Lake Iris Xe GPUs would help increase overall performance and press the score around 1100-1200 points but still, AMD’s Renoir & Cezanne GPUs will stay in a completely different league. In terms of video gaming efficiency, the Iris Xe GPU is an extremely capable chip, delivering around 140-150 FPS in League of Legends at 1080p & over 60 FPS in CSGO at 1080p.
