Posted over on his Twitter account by Ryan Shrout, ex. PC ex. PC Perspective hack and now Chief Performance Strategist at Intel, the prototype was running Battlefield V at 1080p resolution and high-settings in DirectX 11 mode, and it managed to hold its ground by holding 30 frames per second, and even pushing as high as 32fps.
While this might not sound impressive, Battlefield V is quite a heavy game, and it appears that driver development is going well, although Ryan notes that these are early ones, so it could only get better.
Perks of the job! Took a prototype Tiger Lake system for a spin on Battlefield V to stretch its legs. Impressive thin and light gaming perf with Xe graphics! Early drivers/sw, but it’s the first time I’ve seen this game run like this on integrated gfx. More later this year! pic.twitter.com/f1Qlz2jMyB— Ryan Shrout (@ryanshrout) June 17, 2020
Unfortunately, Ryan was not keen to reveal any more details regarding the actual specifications but so far it looks great for Intel. Of course, we do not know if this is a 96 EU part or even the RAM used in the system, so we guess we will have to wait and see.
AMD's Ryzen 9 4900HS, which is an octa-core APU working at 3.0GHz base and 4.3GHz GPU Boost clock, and 8 CU Radeon Vega 8 graphics running at 1750MHz should be somewhere in the ballpark, but we will see them going head to head when Tiger Lake launches later this year.
Intel's CEO, Bob Swan, already confirmed that 10nm++ Tiger Lake for notebooks has more than 50 design wins, and these are expected in the latter part of Q3 2020
In any case, Tiger Lake will bring some rather interesting thin and light notebooks to the market.
