All the graphics calculations are handles by the integrated Iris Xe Graphics G7, but it is the slower of the two versions with 80 EUs. The iGPU benefits from the dual-channel memory configuration and the performance is on the expected level roughly 20% behind the Xe Graphics G7 with 96 EUs (in the i7 CPUs), but still ahead of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 iGPU in the Ryzen 5000 CPUs.
Thanks to the integrated video decoder, the Xe Graphics G7 is a very good choice for everyday multimedia tasks. The performance is also stable and even the demanding Time Spy stress test is easily passed at 99.6%. The new Alder Lake CPUs are still equipped with the Xe iGPUs, so there will not be a big advantage in this respect.
The graphics performance is not reduced on battery power. More GPU benchmarks are listed in our tech section.
