Intel Iris Plus Graphics 645 vs Intel UHD Graphics 615 vs Intel HD Graphics P630

Intel Iris Plus Graphics 645

► remove from comparison Intel Iris Plus Graphics 645

The Intel Iris Plus Graphics 645 (GT3e) is a processor graphics card that was first seen in the Apple MacBook Pro 13 (Entry, 2019) in mid 2019. It is similar to the Iris Plus Graphics 655 in the 28 Watt CPUs.

The so called GT3e version of the Coffee-Lake GPU still has 48 Execution Units (EUs), which can reach up to 1150 MHz depending on the model. Besides eDRAM cache, the Iris 645 can also access the system memory (2x 64 Bit DDR3L-2133/DDR4-2400) via processor interface.

Performance

The exact performance of the Iris Plus Graphics 645 depends on the CPU model, because maximum clock as well as the size of the L3 cache can differ a bit. The system memory (DDR3/DDR4) will influence the performance as well.

The fastest chips are high-clocked Core i7 models like the Core i7-8557U. Depending on the game, the Iris Plus 655 will probably be on par with a dedicated GeForce 930M or GeForce 940MX and can handle smooth gameplay in modern titles in low up to medium settings.

Features

The reworked video engine now fully supports hardware decoding of H.265/HEVC videos. Contrary to Skylake, however, Kaby Lake can now also decode H.265/HEVC Main 10 with a 10-bit color depth as well as Google's VP9 codec. The video output is possible via DP 1.2/eDP 1.3 (up to 3840 x 2160 @60 Hz), whereas HDMI is also supported in the older 1.4a standard. An HDMI 2.0 output can be added via converter from DisplayPort. The GPU can drive up to three displays simultaneously.

Power Consumption

The Iris Plus Graphics 645 is used for 15-Watt processor and therefore small-sized notebooks.

Intel UHD Graphics 615

► remove from comparison Intel UHD Graphics 615

The Intel UHD Graphics 615 (GT2) is a low-end integrated graphics unit, which can be found in the Y-series of the Amber-Lake generation. This "GT2" version offers 24 Execution Units (EUs) clocked at up to 1000 MHz (depending on the CPU model). Due to its lack of dedicated graphics memory or eDRAM cache, the UHD 615 has to access the main memory (2x 64bit DDR3L/LPDDR3). Compared to the old HD Graphics 615 in Kaby-Lake-Y CPUs, the UHD 615 is the same GPU with slightly different clock speeds (depending on the model) and slight power/performance improvements due to the improved 14nm++ process .

Performance

The 3D performance of the UHD 615 depends on the CPU model and the cooling / TDP-setting of the laptop. Furthermore, the used main memory (single channel, DDR3(L), amount) is influencing performance. On average the UHD graphics 615 should be very similar to the Kaby-Lake HD Graphics 615 due to the same architecture and similar speeds. That means that only low demanding games like Farming Simulator 17 or Rocket League are playable in lowest detail settings.

Features

The revised video engine in the HD 615 and UHD 615 now supports H.265/HEVC Main10 profile in hardware with 10 bit colors. Furthermore, Googles VP9 codec can also be hardware decoded. The UHD 615 should support HDCP 2.2 and therefore Netflix 4K. HDMI 2.0 however is still only supported with an external converter chip (LSPCon).

Power Consumption

The UHD Graphics 615 can be found in Y processors with 5 W TDP (can be manipulated by the laptop manufacturers, and up 0,5 Watt from the previous generation) and is therefore suited for very thin, mostly passively cooled 2-in-1 notebooks and tablets.

Intel HD Graphics P630

► remove from comparison Intel HD Graphics P630

The Intel HD Graphics P630 (GT2) is an integrated graphics unit, which can be found in various Xeon workstation processors of the Kaby Lake generation. The "GT2" version of the Skylake GPU offers 24 Execution Units (EUs) clocked at up to 1050 MHz (depending on the CPU model). Due to its lack of dedicated graphics memory or eDRAM cache, the P630 has to access the main memory (2x 64bit DDR3L-1600 / DDR4-2133). It uses the same silicon as the consumer HD Graphics 630 in Kaby-Lake-H processors but features optimized drivers for workstaion and CAD software. According to Intel it is certified for 15 applications (see list).

Performance

According to Intel, the performance of the P630 is identical to the Intel HD Graphis P530 (Skylake predecessor) processor graphics card and 1.94x faster than the old Intel HD Graphics P4000. Compared to consumer cards, the gaming performance should be on a similar level to the dedicated GeForce 920M and will handle old games (as of 2015) in low or medium settings.

Features

The revised video engine in the Kaby Lake chips now supports H.265/HEVC Main10 profile at 10-bit color depth and also the VP9 codec in hardware. Furthermore, HDCP 2.2 is also supported in all chips, which allows Netflix 4K videos, for instance.

Power Consumption

The HD Graphics P630 can be found in mobile quad-core Xeon processors with 45 W TDP and also desktop processors of the Xeon range with higher TDPs.
