Intel Meteor Lake-P tested with Cinebench thanks to MSI

As reported earlier, MSI has put a new laptop on a display at Computex booth. It was discovered by Notebookcheck team that the laptop is actually featuring a new generation of Intel CPU codenamed Meteor Lake. It is unclear why would MSI put such an engineering sample for everyone to play with, but Wccftech have gone a step further.

Turns out they managed to install benchmarking software while the laptop was sitting unattended and MSI did not bother to stop them. They were able to install HWiNFO and Cinebench benchmarks quickly, and they confirmed the speculation that this is indeed a next-gen Intel CPU.

The MSI Prestige 16 EVO/Studio laptop features an unnamed Meteor Lake P/H/U class CPU with 6 Performance cores, and 10 Efficient cores, two of which are installed on the SoC. What should be noted is that this clearly a very engineering sample that has trouble running at full speed. This is likely because the laptop wasn’t actually plugged in to the socket, which has an impact on the Intel Core P-series boost capability.

The software also shows integrated Arc Graphics, which is actually based on Intel Xe-LPG architecture, a low-power derivative of the current Arc discrete GPU series. The graphics have 128 Execution Units, which results in 1024 FP32 cores, so basically the same specs as desktop Arc A380 series.

The Intel CPU has been confirmed to have PL1 of 15W and PL2 of 28W (configurable in 20 to 65W range). According to the HWiNFO output, the sample can boost up to 121W at peak.

The Meteor Lake sample scored 4261 points in multi-core Cinebench R23 benchmark. There was not enough time to test single-core because as soon as those tests were conducted MSI started to notice weird software being enabled on the unit. Nevertheless, we learn that this score was achieved with a rather low 21% CPU utilization with clocks running around 640 MHz max (all core). This is naturally not the full capability of this CPU, but given the circumstances, this is still quite an impressive score, matching some older Intel Ice Lake CPUs from just a few years ago.
