Over at the Intel Developer Conference in Tokyo, Intel shared some details about the performance target of its upcoming Gen12 integrated graphics. To debut with the Tiger Lake processor architecture, this will be the company's first integrated graphics architecture that will be based on the new Xe architecture that will be shared with the upcoming discrete GPUs.
Intel said gamers can expect 60fps at 1080p for eSports titles. That's about double the performance level of the Gen11 graphics used by the Ice Lake CPUs.
That is where the Gen 12 GPU talk comes in. According to Kenichiro Yasu, the Director of Intel technology headquarters, the new Tiger Lake CPUs arriving in 2020 would feature the new Xe GPU architecture which focuses on offering 2x uplift in performance versus their Gen 11 Ice Lake GPUs. Mr. Yasu has highlighted that while the current Iris chips offer around 30 FPS at 1080p in modern eSports titles, the Gen 12 Xe GPUs would offer a noticeable gain in performance. It is stated that Intel is targeting 60 FPS at 1080p. This statement is specifically important for the mass majority of mobility gamers who want faster graphics performance close to them.
