Scheduled for release sometime later this year, the upcoming Intel Tiger Lake processor is said to carry plenty of performance improvements. Designed for laptops, the increase of performance not only involved its CPU capability but also graphics.
With the help of the new Intel Xe graphics architecture, Intel earlier this year claimed that the integrated graphics inside the 10nm Tiger Lake processors can deliver discrete-level graphics. That is quite a bold claim indeed, but this demonstration below showed that it is not just a random sweet talk:
Perks of the job! Took a prototype Tiger Lake system for a spin on Battlefield V to stretch its legs. Impressive thin and light gaming perf with Xe graphics! Early drivers/sw, but it’s the first time I’ve seen this game run like this on integrated gfx. More later this year! pic.twitter.com/f1Qlz2jMyB

Demonstrated by Ryan Shrout, the Chief Performance Strategist at Intel, what have you just seen in the clip above is a prototype laptop equipped with a Tiger Lake processor running Battlefield V at 1080p and High graphics preset. The exact specs of the processor and the laptop itself were not revealed by Ryan but he did point out that the system is not running on finalized drivers or software.
Battlefield V is a graphics-intensive game, so seeing it running at around 30 fps on an integrated laptop graphics processor is quite intriguing. Hence, expect Intel to publicly flex Tiger Lake’s muscle more often as we get nearer to its release within the next few months.
