The result has appeared in the 3DMark database, showing how an unknown Intel processor but that has 4 cores and 8 process threads running at 2.7 GHz base, has managed to beat graphic performance to a brand new AMD Ryzen 4900HS. The processor is unknown, but further down the screenshot we can see that the "motherboard" used with this processor is a "Intel Corporation TigerLake U LPDDR4 / 4x T4 RVP«, So it is evident that it is a Tiger Lake-U processor.
The performance of the integrated Intel Xe supersedes the Ryzen 4000
This is the 3DMark capture and comparison:
In the comparison, AMD wins in the global computation, because at the end of the day an 8-core and 16-thread processor at 4.4 GHz in the case of AMD is being compared with one of 4 cores and 8 threads at 2, 7 GHz in the case of Intel, however, what is striking is the performance of the integrated graphics, where even if only slightly, Intel takes the lead with its Intel Xe architecture iGPU versus AMD's 7nm RX Vega. Keep in mind, too, that an AMD Ryzen 4650U 6-core, 12-wire scores 12988 points in the CPU test, up from 13030 achieved by this Intel processor.
Traditionally, AMD has always stood out for its APUs, which except in Intel Gen.11 have always been ahead in terms of performance compared to the iGPUs Intel used in its processors. Now it seems that things are going to change again, and although AMD is providing real laptop beasts with its Ryzen 4000, if Intel continues this way it can make things difficult for you.
Intel Tiger Lake beats AMD on iGPU but will it be on time?
Now comes the problem for Intel, and that is that the Ryzen 4000 are already here, while Intel is not expected to release Tiger Lake processors until second quarter of next year; In other words, they will arrive a year later than the AMD processors, and by then the red ones could already have another new ace up their sleeve to put them back on top.
Even if Intel could move forward with the Tiger Lake launch, it would find itself at a disadvantage against AMD, who will have plenty of time to counter this. On the other hand, remember that at the moment Intel is only doing tests and the balance is already positive; from here to Tiger Lake see the light will also have a lot of time to improve and optimize, so the performance is likely to be even higher.
