A fresh Geekbench 5 score of an system with the new Iris Xe Max GPU hit the web. The score reveals Intel's DG1 GPU is able to beat very low-end discrete graphics like the NVIDIA GeForce MX330. The latter scores 11,162 in Geekbench 5 OpenCL, while the system with the Iris Xe Max was able to post a score of 11,885.
The Iris Xe Max never aimed to compete in the performance bracket; therefore, it isn't a big shocker that the GPU barely beats Nvidia's GeForce MX330. The Geekbench 5 numbers showed that the Iris Xe Max was just 6.5% faster than the GeForce MX330. On the contrary, the GeForce MX350 delivered up to 16.4% higher performance than Intel's offering.
In comparison to the Radeon RX 550X, the two-year old AMD GPU outperformed the Iris Xe Max by up to 6%.
