The Intel Iris Plus G7 is the best among integrated graphics processors used in the 10th Gen Intel Core G-series main processors. Currently, the most popular processors with the Iris Plus G7 are the 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 and i5-1035G7.
With its 64 execution units, the Intel Iris Plus G7 is faster than the 48-execution unit Iris Plus G4 and 32-execution unit Intel UHD G1, all used in the 10th Gen Intel Core G-series processors. The 10th Gen Intel Core lineup also includes the Core U-series processors with Intel UHD graphics featuring 24 execution units.
Despite their differences, all of the mentioned integrated graphics processors are in the entry-level category. The Iris Plus G7 can be described as an improved entry-level graphics processor.
Intel Iris Plus G7 Graphics Benchmark
Here’s a benchmark score of the Intel Iris Plus G7 compared to other widely used graphics processors for laptops.
The Intel Iris Plus G7 is clearly faster than its Iris Plus G4, UHD G1, and UHD relatives used in the 10th Gen Intel Core processors. The Iris Plus G7 performs similarly to entry-level dedicated video cards, such as the Nvidia GeForce MX series. It’s also comparable to the AMD Vega 10 integrated graphics, which is a direct competitor to the Iris Plus G7. But, they all still lag a lot behind the full-blown gaming laptop video cards like the Nvidia GeForce GTX series.
