The very first gaming demo of Xe2 iGPU is here. Intel demoed it at its Tech Tour while introducing the new Lunar Lake processors. The demo only ran one game, F1 2024, and with ray tracing and XeSS, the integrated graphics card could run the game at 60 FPS at 1080p and High settings.

Intel has showcased the gaming performance of the Xe2 iGPU of an undisclosed Lunar Lake CPU. The game demo focused on one title, however, which is the recently released F1 24. This game comes with day-one support for XeSS technology.

Nonetheless, as per the demo, the Lunar Lake CPU with its Xe2 integrated graphics card can run F1 24 at 60 FPS at 1080p. Intel mentioned that the game was running at High settings preset with ray tracing turned on and XeSS in Performance mode. However, the company didn’t show any real-time FPS counter during the demo. So, we still don’t know if the company’s claim on the performance is accurate.

But if it is, it’s a piece of good news for the upcoming thin and light laptops that will be running at low TDP. Speaking of which, PCWorld shared another benchmark demo where we got to see Lunar Lake delivering the same performance as Meteor Lake with lower total power. This means Intel wasn’t bluffing when it promised increased power efficiency with the new processors.

All this hints that Intel will be offering a refined gaming experience with the Lunar Lake Xe2 iGPU. It also means that we could be seeing the Lunar Lake-powered MSI Claw 8 AI+ stepping things up against the likes of Asus ROG Ally X (preorder at Best Buy).
