Intel Meteor Lake Iris Xe iGPU with 128 EUs trades blows with Radeon 780M and Apple M2 on Geekbench
Over the past few weeks, a slew of leaks gave us a decent idea about how Intel's upcoming Meteor Lake processors stand against the competition (and its predecessors). However, they primarily focused on the CPU part. Now, a new Geekbench listing sheds light on its Xe iGPU, and its performance is nothing short of impressive.
The 128 EU iGPU scores 27,249 points in Geekbench's OpenCL test. That is on par with the AMD Radeon 780M iGPU (28,208 average) found on some high-end Ryzen 7000 series chips, such as the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 (US$1,089 on Amazon) and slightly behind the 10-core Apple M2 (27,900 average). Generation-over-generation gains stand at an impressive ~60% when compared to the 96 EU iGPU (16,688) found on Raptor Lake processors.
The Geekbench listing was for an MSI Prestige 16 AI Evo laptop featuring an Intel Core Ultra 7 155H processor and 16 GB of RAM. This is the same laptop we spotted at Computex earlier this year running a then-unknown Meteor Lake CPU. It was slated for a Q4 2023 launch, which has now been narrowed down to December 14.
