Intel Arc Alchemist integrated GPU performance between A370M and A350M mobile graphics

This is the very first benchmark featuring Intel’s new generation of integrated graphics. 

There is a new Arc in town. This time, it is entering the third phase, which is its integration into a next-generation Intel CPU. The upcoming Core 100 Ultra series, codenamed Meteor Lake, will feature a dedicated GPU tile based on the same architecture that Intel is already employing in their desktop and mobile Arc Alchemist series, known as Xe-HPG.

The derived design is called Xe-LPG, and it is optimized for power efficiency. According to this leak and previous rumors, the highest configuration of Arc iGPU will feature 128 Xe Vector Engines, which is also equal to 8 Xe-Cores. This is the same configuration as we already have on ACM-G11 GPU which is powering desktop and mobile graphics such as A380, A310 or A370M and A350M.

The iGPU was just tested on MSI’s new Prestige 16 AI laptop, which we covered in this post. It is powered by an Intel Core Ultra 7 155H processor with 16 cores and 22 threads. This chip is now confirmed to feature 8 Xe-Cores iGPU config as well.

The Arc iGPU featured a boost clock of 2250 MHz and had access to 6.27 GB of system memory. System memory plays a crucial role in integrated graphics performance, particularly in gaming scenarios. But in this case, probably not as much. The OpenCL benchmark, which is a pure raw compute test, recorded a score of 27249 points for the Arc iGPU.

One should also mention that these results are with Geekbench 5.0 not the 6.0. This complicates our comparison hugely because we had to manually collect data for this comparison. Below you will find averaged scores from at least 2 pages of the latest results.

From this, we learn that The iGPU is situated between the A370M and A350M graphics processors. It is not as fast as the discrete desktop series, even with fewer cores, but one must remember that we are talking about ultra-low-power iGPU graphics, not even a mobile GPU.

Intel Arc iGPU scores close to Radeon 760M in Ryzen 5 7640U. It is nowhere near more powerful variants such as 780M in Ryzen 7040HS series, however one should remember that Ultra 7 155H is not a 45W TDP CPU but 28W. Therefore, Arc iGPU performance may go higher once we see Ultra 9 185H iGPU in action.

The highlight of this leak is that Intel now finally offers a matched GPU suitable for handhelds and low-power gaming laptops. Meanwhile, AMD is not ceding ground to Intel in the iGPU market and plans to unveil its RDNA3.5-based mobile series in the coming year. The competitive landscape in this arena is intensifying swiftly. Meanwhile, the Intel Meteor Lake series is scheduled to make its debut on December 14th.
