Intel UHD Graphics of 10th Gen Intel Core U Processors

The Intel UHD Graphics is a graphics processor integrated into select Intel Core processors for laptops. More precisely, in the 10th Gen Intel Core U-series processors, such as the i3-10110U, i5-10210U, and i7-10510U. The UHD isn’t designed for hard core gaming. It rather provides basic performance for managing the notebooks’ screens and some light gaming.

Intel UHD is very similar to its precursor – the Intel UHD 620 of the 8th Gen Intel Core U-series processors. They have 24 graphics execution units. Intel has also in its main processor lineup the 10th Gen Intel Core G-series chips, with improved integrated graphics processors – the Intel UHD (G1) with 32, Intel Iris Plus (G4) with 48, and Intel Iris Plus (G7) with 64 execution units. These graphics processors offer somewhat better performance, but still in the low-end graphics range.

Intel UHD Graphics Benchmark

Here’s the User Benchmark ranking of the UHD integrated graphics of the 10th Gen Intel Core U-series processors, compared to other popular laptop-use GPUs.

Intel UHD Graphics Benchmark

As you can see, the Intel UHD graphics is near the bottom of the benchmark chart. That’s quite expected, since graphics processing units that are built into the systems’ main processors are generally weak. The Intel UHD can be described as an average integrated graphics processor. Also, it is somewhat slower than the Intel UHD G1 and Intel Iris Plus G4 / G7 GPUs.

Real World Gaming

Just like its Intel UHD 620 similarly-specced precursor, the Intel UHD should be able to run decently smooth many of the most popular games. In particular, lighter titles such as League of Legends, Minecraft, or Dota. It isn’t a gaming-class graphics solution with potential to run smoothly all the latest AAA games, but it can be a very decent budget graphics choice for light gaming with great power efficiency and cool operation.

Take a look at the gameplay videos provided by the YouTube community in the Reviews, Q&A, and Videos section below.

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 UHD 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.

  1. Question

    Ringo

    Hi,
    I am considering buying out my old work computer. Its a Lenovo Thinkpad T14s Gen1 with 16GB RAM and an Intel(R) UHD Graphics Family. Will I be able to run Civ VI on this, or should I just drop buying it out? Havent played on a computer in years, so its all foreign for me now 🙂 Thanks

    • Dan

      Hi, I have found this Civilization 6 gameplay on the similar UHD 620 graphics of the 8th Gen Intel Core, showing you can run the game on low settings and Full HD resolution at modest smoothness of ~30 fps: https://youtu.be/wmTH856GQfo

      An important factor here is single or dual channel RAM. Dual is noticeably better for gaming and this gameplay in on dual. I hope your RAM is dual – 2 x 8GB.

  2. Question

    ouss

    can i run gta v on i3 10 gen 4gb ram and intel uhd graphics?

    • Dan

      Even if you manage to start the game, performance will be very poor due to weak graphics of the i3 CPU and insufficient RAM size.

    • regnar

      can i play gta 5 on core i5 10 gen 8 gb , intel uhd 620 graphics ??

    • Amit jerbi

      I play on i5 10210u and 4 gb ram and i can run the game like 20-30 fps on 1080p

  3. Question

    Mariano505

    Hi all,

    Please is here somebody who can help me with my question: Can I use my laptop with 3 external monitors?

    Laptop:
    “HP EliteBook 840 G7, IntelCore i5-10310U CPU @ 1.7 GHz [8 CPUs], ~2.2GHz”, and 16GB RAM.
    https://support.hp.com/lv-en/document/c06680927#AbT7

    with the standard incorporated graphics: “Intel UHD Graphics”

    On the page “ark.intel.com” in section “Processor Graphics” it says “# of Displays Supported = 3”

    https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/201892/intel-core-i510310u-processor-6m-cache-up-to-4-40-ghz.html

    does it mean I can use it with 3 external monitors (Philips 243S) on resolution 1920×1080 ??? What do you think???

    With a HUB which has 3 HDMI slots and a cable to laptop with USB-C. I didn’t buy it yet as I need to know whether my laptop would even work with 3 monitors.

    • Dan

      The number of displays supported for a laptop processor on the Intel site usually includes the laptop’s own display, so this probably means you can use the built-in display combined with 2 external monitors.

  4. Question

    Leo

    Can I play NBA 2k22 on my Core i3 1011.. with Intel UHD??

    • Dan

      Based on this video, the game runs well on the desktop PC i3 10th Gen on low settings and 720p resolution: https://youtu.be/iK5147x-yjU

      Now, since the laptop i3-10110U is weaker than the desktop counterpart, you can expect even lower performance. It will be especially lower if you don’t have dual channel RAM (1 RAM stick instead of 2) and if you have less than 8GB of RAM in total.

  5. Question

    TheRizzler

    I have a i3-1005G1 8gb ram 256 ssd and the uhd for 10th gen. I can’t run valorant smoothly even at the lowest settings and also the resolution quality reduced to 80. I get 30 fos with too many stutters. Other websites say that valorant should run on my laptop at lowest settings without stutters. How is this possible ?

    • Dan

      Do you have single or dual channel RAM – 1 x 8GB or 2 x 4GB? Single channel RAM impacts negatively gaming performance a lot on integrated graphics.

    • josh

      u should adjust the resolution to the lowest because i have a i5 10th gen and 4gb vram intel uhd graphics and i get upwards of 75 fps i suggest 1024×960 for valorant

  6. Question

  8. Question

    Santiago Gómez

    Does somebody know how to increase dedicated memory video? Because it only seems to stay in 128 mb I already try to increase it in the bios but there isnt any option to do so

    • Anonymous

      you cant, there is no way to increase the dedicated memory. better of buying a new laptop like nitro 5 or gigabyte G5 that have 3050 or 3060

  9. Question

    garden

    can my laptop with a specs of i3 11th gen 8gb ram intel uhd grpahics run minecraft?

    • Dan

      Yes it ca run Minecraft, it’s a light game. You will maybe have to dial down graphics settings if there’s a lot of objects in your scenes.

  10. Question

    John

    How many total displays (includes the laptop display) can the Intel UHD support?

  11. The Witcher 1 Enhanced Editio - UHD Intel Graphics

    Paul

    Hey guys. I was wondering about my pc specs. I was running The witcher 1 with UHD graphics and runs pretty smoth, even in max resolution. The problem is that almost ever that i reach 1 hour gameplay, game crash and send me back to the desktop. All of this has to do with my integrated graphics? how is possible game runs perfect for one hour and, when happens some ramdon cutscene, it crash?

    • Dario

      Because your cpu temps were getting high.

  12. Question

    Robert

    How can I update UHD graphics driver? I couldn’t find any way to update it.
    I understand this is from 2019, but there should be an updated driver for 2020, or 2021. I cannot run Adobe Premiere, because it isn’t updated 🙁 pls, help!

    • Dan

      The easiest way is to go to Windows Device Manager / Display Adapters / Intel UHD Graphics – right click on it -Update Driver.

  13. Question

    Jade

    I’m a gamer myself, i downloaded valorant one time and played the tutorial and its really bad, it lags, i tried to lower the settings and tinkered it a bit but it isn’t really working. Can i ask what other games can i play with this kind of graphics aside from League of Legends and Overwatch? My laptop is Asus X415 X415EA-BV336T with Intel Core i3-1115G4 and Intel® UHD Graphics.

    • epicbuulder2007

      Well, I tried Minecraft, without any mods most it can do is a very inconsistent 45-50 fps. But with a hefty ton, and I do mean hefty by at least 10, you can easily get 60.

    • Jhanna M

      I play osu! and it runs good, always more than 120 fps almost reaching 300 fps. Doesn’t lag either with the tablet drivers.

    • Aaeez K

      I’ve played valorant and it runs smoothly when on the lowest setting and plugged in. It might have to do with your ram

  14. Question

    Bully Maguire

    I have a dell vostro 3590 i3 10th gen 4 gb ram. It has intel uhd graphics 620. What is the boost clock speed of the graphics card?

    • Dan

      On the 10th Gen i3 U, the Intel UHD Graphics has maximal boost clock of 1 GHz. It’s a bit slower than on the i5 and i7 (1.1 and 1.15 GHz).

  15. Question

    Josue Gonzalez

    Is it possible to play genshin impact with these graphics?

    • Connerito

      I’ve same doubt! Have you found tho?

    • Josue Gonzalez

      I still can’t find anything

    • Dan

      There are multiple videos on YouTube showing that Genshin can run on the older Intel UHD 620, which performs very similar to this Intel UHD graphics. In all of these videos graphics settings and resolutions are set to low and frame rates are in the lower range, but playable. Some videos however show freezing issues, which can be fixed with tweaks.

    • ayman sraidi

      you need to eat more bananas ana hope for satan to not bite your ass
      also don’t forget to like and subscribe

    • connerito

      So did you try playing it???even i want to know would I be able to run it Genshin or not. I’m getting like 120fps in valorant tho.
      my specs: intel i5 10th gen , 16gb 2667mhz ddr4 ram , Hdd ,UHD graphics

  16. Question

    Derryck

    Can I watch 4K movies through HDMI into tv?

    • Dan

      Yes, you can. However, some laptops with the Intel UHD and other graphics processors aren’t able to deliver 60Hz or higher refresh rates while displaying 4K content via HDMI, as opposed to DisplayPort which supports 4K at 60Hz. 4K videos at 24Hz refresh rate should work smoothly via HDMI.

    • spider

      can i play games like AMAZING spider man 1 ON 123 MB graphics

  17. Question

    Lily

    Hey, is it good for 3d modeling softwares like pixi4dmappe4 nd 3dreshaper?

    • Dan

      Since it is an entry-level graphics processor, it isn’t made for 3D modeling. For that recommended are dedicated video cards, such as the Nvidia GeForce GTX or RTX series.

    • epicbuulder2007

      It’s good enough for small stuff, but don’t expect to be able to model a detailed model of your dog. And don’t even mention rendering

  18. Question

    Zirkzee

    Does Dota 2 run smoothly with this GPU on i7-10510U 16 GB RAM ?

  19. Question

    Pranav

    My laptop hp core i3 1005g1 Intel uhd graphic doesn’t support medium graphics for pes 16 and it shows doesn’t meet the minimum requirements of 512 mb vram. Can I increase it?

    • Michael Gardesey

      I have tried all what I have but it seems not to work

  20. Question

    Aayush Gundal

    Does it support valorant

    • kirtuhik

      yes it will

    • Madhav yadav

      yes its running smoothly on 60 FPS

  21. 1 out of 5 screen blackening

    Praveenraj

    i am using HP 14s laptop. after turning on the system, part of the screen goes into black for some softwares. This issue get resolved when I disable and enable the graphics driver.

  22. Question

    Andy

    Can HDMI and DP be used at the same time to drive 2 QHD displays each with resolution of 2560 *1440?

    • Dan

      Hi, based on specs of this graphics processor, it supports 4096 x 2304 at 24Hz refresh rate via HDMI and up to 4096 x 2304 at 60Hz via DisplayPort. I can safely assume you can do what you ask for, but I don’t know if you’ll be able to run the HDMI display at the common and standard 60 Hz screen resolution.

    • Charles

      I have a request to run two external monitors off an i7 based laptop which has this Intel UHD integrated graphics adapter. Based on the answer above does this mean that the adapter can handle the laptop monitor plus two external monitors? I assume I’d simply set displays 1 and 2 to mirror each other and display 3 to be an extended display?

  23. Question

    Lila

    Can I play sims 4 with these graphics?

    • Dan

      Yes you can, since it isn’t an overly heavy game. Since the Intel UHD is a basic graphics processor, you’ll have to lower graphics detail settings in the game to get smooth gameplay. I assume you can run it smoothly on 720p resolution and medium graphics settings.

  24. Question

    niam

    Is there is a point in like i5 or these better graphic cards, if you dont intend to game. If you only do office tasks, youtube and stuff like that. Is there an actual difference, is it worth to buy a budget gaming laptop just to have better processor and graphics card ?

    • Dan

      Hi, I wouldn’t buy a gaming laptop only for office tasks, videos, web browsing and similar. In fact, gaming laptops tend to consume more power – therefore they have shorter battery life – and produce more heat. And you’ll hardly notice any performance difference between gaming and regular laptops in the usual day-to-day tasks you mentioned.

  25. Question

    Ammar Al Amin

    How increase vram on intel uhd g1 ?

    • Dan

      Usually, there’s a graphics memory size option in notebooks’ BIOS settings.

  26. Question

    Alex

    can I connect 2 external monitors to this?

    • Dan

      Yes you can if the laptop has at least 2 video outputs. For example, HDMI and DisplayPort or multiple video outputs via USB-C.

  27. Question

    William Schotte

    Could i ru phasmophobia with this?

    • Thomas W

      yes but on low settings

  28. Question

    Issac

    Can the Integrated Intel® UHD Graphics run on Autocad?

    • Bob

      Hi Issac. I’m no expert, but I do use this for work. I have AutoCad LT 2021 w/8 GB of memory. However, my system only can go for a few hours of work before I experience freezing. The only way to make this stop is to restart the computer. I’m hoping my employer will soon beef up my system so I can have a better working experience. Not sure if just increasing the RAM will do the trick. I only work in 2D as well. Just gets frustrating when editing text on a dwg and it freezes for 15 or 20 seconds.

  29. Question

    annoymus

    can i play gta 5 i have inten uhd graphics and i5 10gen 8gb ram

    • Steve

      Yes it can, however you will have to run the game at all low settings to get around 60FPS.

  30. Question

    Lee

    1.Does it support for Display Stream Compression?
    2.Does it support 4K2K 120Hz?

  31. Question

    Molly

    I need to run Giza 2020 autocad. They specify a “Graphics Card: DirectX 11 compliant windows dedicated graphics card with 4GB of video memory” Will the Intel UHD graphics card meet these requirements?

    • Dan

      Unfortunately, it doesn’t, based on these requirements. Intel UHD supports DirectX 12, but is not a dedicated graphics card (graphics processor with its own dedicated video memory). It is an integrated graphics processor, which uses the notebook’s RAM memory for graphics purposes.

      Compatible with these requirements are dedicated video cards such as those from the Nvidia GeForce series with no less than 4GB RAM.

      But, I’m not an expert in the Autocad field, so I don’t know if the program can actually run on Intel UHD, maybe with some limited functionalities and for sure with not-so-great performance.

  32. Question

    Akshat

    Does it support Asphalt 9 Legends?

    • dlir

      yes it does. i personally tried it and the experience was great though you can’t run it
      on ultra settings but high settings are more than enough

  33. 5 out of 5 Which one is better processor for video editing and animation G1 or U series processor?

    Raj

    I’m talking about lenovo s340 and S540 series
    S340 comes with i5 G1 processor and s540 comes with i5 U processor. Which one perform better for video editing and animation? Both comes with Nvidia MX250 graphics.

  34. Question

    Sajid

    If i upgrade my ram to 12 GB then intel uhd graphics can access maximum 6 gb. I know i shouldn’t give access to more than 2 gb. But how good it wil perform if I dedicate 2 gb of ram as video memory?

  35. Question

    Torsten Pihl

    Can Intel UHD decode H.265?

  36. Question

    Gerald

    Does it support for streaming HDR in Netflix?

    • Dan

      Hi, HDR 10 used by Netflix is supported on integrated graphics of Intel processors since the 7th Gen Intel Core (this Intel UHD is of the 10th Gen Intel Core). But you will of course need a display with HDR 10 support, be it the laptop’s display or an external HDR 10-ready monitor. Please keep in mind that besides the HDR 10-ready graphics processor, additional chipset built into the laptop may be needed to stream HDR 10 video over HDMI video output. As far as I know, HDR 10 is supported on DisplayPort video outputs by default.

  37. Question

    Amanda Scofield

    Laptop ACER Aspire3 intel core i5 10th GEN with UHD graphics. My significant other just bought this laptop for school as it turns out he needs to be able to run a program called Mastercam Design 2021. It needs to have OpenCL 1.2 to operate the app for school labs correctly. I have tried to update the drivers and run all possible available system updates in hopes it would resolve the issue, but i am still getting the error message that this compatibility hasn’t been resolved. What can i do to upgrade the graphics we do not have the money to just go out and buy another computer like he wants to do. (he should of listened to me to begin with and we would not be having this problem)

  38. Question

    Raman

    does intel UHD support games like Call of Duty modern warfare of warzone?

    • JJ

      honestly it will run but at a terrible fps 🙁

    • bill

      warone=no it just say gpu not supported or something

    • Charl Kok

      Myne works but it is very lagy. When you jump out of the plane it lags. What can i do to fix it?

    • ROHITH

      That will destroy you’re laptops battery and damage you’re i5 processor too

  39. Question

    Tridipta Dolui

    Does it supports 4k monitor?

    • Dan

      Yes, it does. But, keep in mind that if your laptop has only older HDMI version 1.4 output, maximal refresh rate of the screen at 4K resolution will be 24 Hz, as opposed to common 60 Hz you can have via HDMI 2.0 or DisplayPort output.

    • Tridipta Dolui

      How to understand that my HDMI vrsion is 1.4 or 2.0?

    • Beth S

      In my experience with 2 different computers, NO. It is either the graphics card or the HDMI port, but it will not go higher than 1080 on my 4K monitor

  40. Question

    Hasib

    How does this GPU performs in games like GTA V, FIFA 19, CoD, Fortnite, etc. Can anyone share a gameplay video showing the fps count?

    • Gerard

      Fr, I’m scared if my laptop wouldn’t b able to play fifa

    • Neil Tonna

      I play GTA V nearly everyday on my laptop with these graphics. Lowest graphics. It is not the best. For example if you’re travelling at a high speed in a car or race or what so ever, it’ll lag a lot.

  41. Question

    Bahar

    Hello, can I train CNN on this laptop, it has mentioned in this link: https://laptoping.com/cpus/product/intel-core-i5-1035g1/
    that as it is upgraded for 10th generation therefore it could perform deep learning and AI computations

  42. Question

    Derrick

    Will this be enough in photo editing like photoshop or lightroom? The specific laptop is HP ENVY 13-aq1000nx, Intel Core i5-10210U (10th Gen), Intel UHD Graphics, 512 GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD.

    • Dan

      Hi, I’m not a Photoshop / Lightroom user, but can tell you for sure the main processor (CPU) is more important for these programs than the graphics processor (GPU). The Core i5-10210U is a very good processor for these tasks. I’m currently using the previous 8th Gen Core i5 with its UHD graphics for picture editing in Paint.net and Nikon’s RAW editor and the processor works great. The 10th Gen i5 is even better. That said, the Intel UHD integrated graphics of the Core i5 is a basic graphics processor. As far as I know, some features of current Photoshop and Lightroom versions can utilize the graphics processor to make these features run faster. For these features, having a better graphics processor like a dedicated video card (Nvidia GTX, RTX…) is beneficial (and maybe a must for some advanced Photoshop features). Otherwise, the i5-10210U / Intel UHD combination is a good choice for image editing. Just make sure you have at least 8GB RAM.

  43. Question

    sibprasad

    Is it suitable for all the works like ,office work,designing,rendering etc except gaming ?

    • Dan

      Hi, it isn’t good for heavy graphics work like 3D rendering and applications that rely on graphics performance a lot. It is a very basic graphics processor. For these tasks, I would suggest a dedicated video card, such as the Nvidia GeForce GTX series, preferably GTX 1650 or higher. The Intel UHD is good for tasks that are easy on the graphics, such as Office apps, web browsing, or design and other graphics programs that don’t rely a lot on graphics power.

  44. League of Legends and Overwatch

    Dan

    Here are League of Legends and Overwatch gameplay videos on the i5-10210U with the Intel UHD graphics. The games run smooth on low detail settings and Full HD and HD resolutions, respectively.

    • Sadiq

      Does it supports WWE 2k18
