Earlier this month, we got our first taste of Intel's Iris Xe Max GPU, as the Acer Swift 3x was the first notebook announced to use the discrete graphics chip. Today, however, Intel is actually getting a bit more in-depth with this GPU, which is part of the company's 12th generation graphics family. We were first introduced to with the Iris Xe graphics in Tiger Lake mobile processors. Like the Iris Xe in Tiger Lake, Iris Xe Max is based on Xe-LP microarchitecture. Iris Xe Max has a total of 96 execution units and a clock speed of 1.65GHz (up from 1.35GHz on Tiger Lake, while maintaining the same max number of EUs). The GPU also has 4GB of dedicated LPDDR4x memory with 68GB/sec... Read more...
It is only a matter of time before we see how Intel's Iris Xe Max graphics performs in the real world, perhaps starting with Acer's recently announced Swift 3X, the first Tiger Lake laptop to flex Intel's discrete GPU. For now, however, leaked benchmarks are the only place to find some numbers, and so it goes with a couple of new listings on Geekbench. We have not heard a whole lot about Iris Xe Max, and it was a bit of a surprise revelation when the first reference to the new part showed up in promotional video last night, which highlighted Intel's refreshed branding logos. That little blip between the 36 and 37 second mark served as confirmation that it exists, followed by Acer's Swift 3X announcement... Read more...
In this episode of HotHardware's Two And A Half Geeks, we'll be taking a close look at NVIDIA's Reflex technology, the first sighting of Intel Iris Xe Max DISCRETE graphics, and throttling iPhones in UL's latest cross-platform graphics benchmark.

Over the summer, Intel announced its 11th generation Tiger Lake processors, which power the latest thin and light notebooks from various OEMs. In addition to bringing faster overall CPU performance compared to the preceding 10th generation Ice Lake processors, Tiger Lake also introduced the world to 12th generation Iris Xe integrated graphics (which offers a significant uptick in GPU performance). Keeping that in mind, Acer has announced a first with its new Swift 3X laptop. At first glance, the Swift 3X doesn't seem to be that remarkable of a machine. It's available with an Intel Core i5-1135G7 or Core i7-1165G7 processor, up to 16GB of LPDDR4X memory, up to a 1TB SSD, and... Read more...
Most of the talk about PC graphics these days is split between NVIDIA's recently launched GeForce RTX 30 series (Ampere) and AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 6000 stack (RDNA 2). Fair enough, but there is another player you may have heard about: Intel. We are still waiting for Intel to release its first discrete GPU to the desktop, but in the meantime, its recently confirmed Iris Xe Max GPU has made a benchmark cameo. For anyone who missed it, Intel last month began refreshing its Core and other branding logos. It released a promo video offering "A Wonderful New Look" at the new logos, and if you freeze the video at the right moment, you can clearly see the Iris Xe Max badge. Here is what it looks like...... Read more...
