Intel Iris Xe

The Iris Xe is a GPU from Intel released in 2020. This chip has an average gaming score at 10% in our GPU benchmark.

In terms of clock speed, the Iris Xe GPU core runs at a frequency of 300 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1100 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.

As for rendering API support, the Iris Xe supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.

This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 15W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
