Intel Iris Xe Graphics of 11th Gen Core G7 & 12th Gen Core P CPUs
The Intel Iris Xe is one of the most widely used graphics processors in laptops since its release in 2020. That’s because it is integrated in the widely used 11th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7 G7-series, as well as in newer 12th Gen Core i5 and i7 P-series, main processors. Popular examples of these are the i5-1135G7 and i7-1165G7.
With its performance, the Intel Iris Xe belongs to the entry-level graphics processor category. As same as all integrated graphics processors that are used in main processors and use the main memory since they don’t have their own video memory, the Iris Xe can’t compete against the full-blown gaming-class video cards. It’s far behind the typical Nvidia GeForce GTX or RTX gaming series. But, performance of the Iris Xe is similar to performance of some entry-level dedicated video cards like the Nvidia GeForce MX series. That’s a great result for an integrated graphics processor. Also the Iris Xe of the 11th Gen Core i5 and i7 G-series processors is noticeably faster than the Intel UHD (G4) of the i3 G4-series chip from the 11th Gen Core G-series.
Intel Iris Xe Graphics Benchmark
Here’s a benchmark score of the Intel Iris Xe compared to other widely used graphics processors for laptops.
Note: This post was updated on 4/19/2022.
Note: The benchmark scores of the listed graphics processors are averages measured across various devices with these processors. The scores and real-world performance of the Intel Iris Xe and compared GPUs may vary depending on the notebooks' other components, settings, cooling, and other factors (especially single-channel vs faster dual-channel RAM and speed of the main processor). However, the benchmark results, as well as gameplay videos, are good indicators of the graphics processors' performance.
