The Intel UHD G1 is an integrated graphics processor. You can find it in the main laptop processors from the 10th Gen Intel Core G1 series. The most popular among these are the Intel Core i5-1035G1 and i3-1005G1.
Just like all integrated graphics processors, the UHD G1 isn’t aimed at heavy gaming. It is designed to manage screens of laptops with it and provide some basic gaming ability.
The Intel UHD G1 with its 32 graphics execution units is an improvement over the 24-unit Intel UHD graphics of the 10th Gen Intel Core U-series processors. However, the Intel UHD G1, is weaker than the Intel Iris Plus G4, and Intel Iris Plus G7 graphics of the 10th Gen Intel Core G4 and G7 series processors. They have 48 and 64 execution units, respectively.
Intel UHD G1 Graphics Benchmark
Here’s a benchmark test of the Intel UHD G1 compared to other widely used graphics processors for laptops.
As expected, the Intel UHD G1 achieves an only slightly better score than the Intel UHD. The Iris Plus G4 and G7 are slightly better than the UHD G1. Nevertheless, they all provide quite basic graphics performance, which greatly lags behind the full-blown gaming class video cards, such as those from the popular Nvidia GeForce GTX series.
Real World Gaming on UHD G1
Although the benchmark scores of the Intel UHD G1 are quite low, the graphics processor is still able to handle many of the most popular PC games. Some lighter game titles can run decently smooth. For example, League of Legends, Minecraft, or Dota. These games are playable on the weaker Intel UHD as well, while the UHD G1 should be able to provide a bit smoother gaming experience in them. Hardware-demanding PC games are generally too heavy for the Intel UHD G1 and other similar integrated graphics processors, but some titles can be playable on lowest in-game graphics detail settings.

Sidenote: Please keep in mind that the benchmark results and real-world graphics performance may vary depending on the main processor, system memory, laptop’s design, and other factors. As a big factor, having dual-channel system memory instead of single channel can noticeably improve graphics performance, especially performance of integrated graphics processors.
