WCCF Tech discovered a new entry in the SiSoft Sandra benchmark database of an engineering sample of the Intel Tiger Lake. This chip is equipped with Xe-based integrated graphics, with a total of 96 execution units (EUs).
The leak in question appears to come from Intel's lab directly as the driver in use is "ReleaseInternal". The Intel Tiger Lake iGPU is paired with a CPU that has a base clock of 3.1 GHz and should be more than capable of handling the compute side of games. At these power levels, Intel's TGL is set to revolutionize how we see integrated graphics. The company has spent the better part of a year tuning its drivers and improving the GUI experience and with TGL, the Xe IP will finally enter the fray and deliver the very first of Intel's promises.
With an expected graphical horsepower of 1.84 teraflops, this Tiger Lake chip offers the same level as graphics power as the original Sony PlayStation. It will be interesting to see how Xe changes the entry-level graphics card market. Starting with Tiger Lake, there may no longer be a market for cards like the NVIDIA GeForce MX250.
