Dying Light 2 runs smoothly on Meteor Lake iGPU with XeSS

Intel recently showcased its upcoming Core Ultra 100 series, codenamed “Meteor Lake,” with a focus on gaming performance. This marks a significant move for Intel, which has been striving to compete with AMD in the low-power gaming arena. Meteor Lake features the Alchemist-derived Xe-LPG architecture, integrated into a separate graphics tile within the Meteor Lake package. This development promises to set a new standard for Intel’s integrated GPU performance.

During the demonstration, Intel chose to showcase Meteor Lake’s gaming capabilities using the game Dying Light 2, which supports XeSS technology. The native rendering was performed at 1080p resolution, while the XeSS demo ran at 720p. Notably, XeSS on Meteor Lake operated within a power range of up to 30 watts. Interestingly, instead of displaying frame rates (FPS), Intel focused on FPS scaling, which showed an increase ranging from 1.6x to 1.7x and occasionally reaching 1.9x.

This demonstration represents the first time Intel has showcased XeSS technology on their integrated graphics. Although XeSS is officially supported on all compatible hardware, including Xe MAX iGPUs, this is the first instance where XeSS is officially considered for use on low-power GPU solutions for gaming, potentially delivering a playable experience in modern titles.

The Xe-LPG graphics within the Meteor Lake processor series are anticipated to include as many as 8 Xe-Cores, a configuration closely resembling that of the Arc A370M discrete GPU. The Meteor Lake processor series is currently scheduled for launch on December 14th. We look forward to hearing more from manufacturers of handheld gaming systems that will be powered by this new architecture, as some of them have already unveiled their latest hardware.
