Intel UHD Graphics Xe G4 48EUs vs Intel UHD Graphics 64EUs (Alder Lake 12th Gen)

Intel UHD Graphics Xe G4 48EUs

► remove from comparison Intel UHD Graphics Xe G4 48EUs

The Intel UHD Graphics Xe Graphics G4 (Tiger-Lake U GPU with 48 EUs) is a integrated graphics card in the low end Tiger-Lake U CPUs (15 Watt, e.g. Core i3 11th Gen). It is using the new Xe architecture (Gen12) and should be announced later in 2020.

The performance depends on the TDP settings of the laptop and the used cooling. First informations show that the chip can be configured at 15 and 28 Watt TDP default (as the Ice Lake-U chips) and the performance should be around a dedicated GeForce MX230 in 3DMark benchmarks. For gaming we are expecting a bit worse performance due to the missing dedicated graphics memory and driver support. Compared to the fastest Ice Lake iGPU (Iris Plus G7), the 48 EU version in an i3 should be slightly faster. Therefore, the iGPU is still only for lowest graphical settings and low resolutions in demanding games.

The Tiger Lake SoCs and therefore the integrated GPU are manufactured in the modern 10nm+ process (improved 10nm process) at Intel and therefore should offer a very good efficiency.

Intel UHD Graphics 64EUs (Alder Lake 12th Gen)

► remove from comparison Intel UHD Graphics 64EUs

The Intel UHD Graphics 80EUs (12th Gen Alder Lake GPU, Xe Architecture with 80 EUs) is an integrated graphics card in the mid range Alder-Lake CPUs. It is using the new Xe architecture (Gen12) and should be announced later in 2020. The SoC is manufactured in an improved 10nm process (called Intel 7).
