Possible Tiger Lake chipset challenges the Ryzen 7 4800U on GPU performance in 3DMark 11
The widespread release of the Tiger Lake architecture is likely a while off yet, with companies like Apple only just starting to upgrade their devices to Ice Lake. The big differences between Tiger Lake and Ice Lake largely remain unknown, although we know that the former will include Intel Gen12 GPUs, also known as Intel Xe GPUs.
A mysterious 3DMark 11 listing may offer an insight into the performance levels of Tiger Lake and its Intel Gen12 GPUs. Spotted by @_rogame, the unknown chipset achieved 5,738 points in 3DMark 11 Performance, a score that the leaker notes is well beyond the capabilities of even the 28 W Core i7-1068G7.
Correspondingly, @_rogame asserts that this graphics score is an indicator of the chipset being from the Tiger Lake family. The chip is not far off preliminary 3DMark 11 Performance benchmarks for the Ryzen 7 4800U, either. Currently AMD's premier Renoir APU, the Ryzen 7 4800U has scored 6,121 points in the same benchmark, a lead of about 6% over this possible Tiger Lake chip.
Additionally, a score of 5,738 puts the chip beyond the Ryzen 7 4700U, which @_rogame states has achieved 5,432 points in the same benchmark. At this stage, we would treat as an indication of where the Tiger Lake architecture may be relative to the Renoir architecture. The latter is likely to arrive considerably earlier than the former though, so AMD may hold an advantage over Intel for a while, at least in this regard anyway.
