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.

Current rating: 5 out of 5 stars
  1. 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.

  2. 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?

      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.

  5. 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)

      This might be too late, but Mastercam Design seems to be a pretty demanding piece of software. You need a laptop with dedicated graphics. No amount of updating will make it work. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

    • 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.

    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.

    • 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.
