Intel Meteor Lake Xe-LPG graphics currently boost up to 2.2 GHz
The competition in integrated graphics is heating up.
Intel is in the final stages of preparing its Meteor Lake chips for launch later this year. The upcoming mobile Core Ultra series will introduce an entirely new architecture based on Intel 4 process technology, incorporating a hybrid design with Redwood Cove (Core) and Crestmont (Atom).
According to a report from Golden Pig Upgrade, the qualification sample (QS) of Meteor Lake currently operates within a power range of 20 to 65W and can achieve a boost clock of up to 4.8 GHz. While this falls short of the Core i7-1370P (Raptor Lake) 5.0 GHz boost and its current offerings, the source suggests that the aim is to reach 5.0 GHz with the new Core Ultra 9 series.
The complete compute die consists of 6 Performance, 8 Efficient, and 2 Low-Power Efficient cores. The GPU subsystem will feature 8 Xe Cores with 128 Execution Units or 1024 shading units (FP32 cores). This, combined with the reported boost clock of 2.2 GHz, yields a single-precision compute power of 4.5 TFLOPS, representing a mere 5% increase compared to the Radeon 780M RDNA3 iGPU used in Phoenix APUs.
AMD Phoenix APUs have been successfully incorporated into small handheld gaming systems, but the laptop offering is not as strong as expected. Nevertheless, the platform is enabling new markets for AMD and there is theoretically nothing that should prevent Intel from doing the same. One might soon have a lot more options that don’t require dedicated graphics, if only Intel catches up with the drivers.
