Intel's Iris - Not for gaming
Updated: Jan 29, 2021
Recently, Intel had released their new graphics card, the Iris XE Max. This new GPU is not for a desktop, so it isn’t competing against Nvidia or AMD’s professional graphics card.
Instead its competitor is with Nvidia’s best laptop grade graphics card - the NV MX350. In short, looking at the graphs provided by Intel, their card seems to do well in almost all given games.
Intel does stand behind in some games, but not by much at all. The thing to keep in mind is that they aren’t going to sell these cards separately, but along with laptops. So to get one, you would have to buy a laptop which supports the Iris.
Overall, the graphics card stands shoulder to shoulder with Nvidia’s, sometimes standing taller.
We will only know after seeing the performance with our own eyes.
