Iris Xe vs GeForce MX330 benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the Iris Xe GPU is faster than the GeForce MX330 in gaming.

Our database shows that the GeForce MX330 has a significantly higher core clock speed. This is the frequency at which the graphics core is running at. While not necessarily an indicator of overall performance, this metric can be useful when comparing two GPUs based on the same architecture. In addition, the GeForce MX330 also has a significantly higher boost clock speed. The boost clock speed is the frequency that the GPU core can reach if the temperature is low enough. The allows for higher performance in certain scenarios.

In addition, the GeForce MX330 has a significantly lower TDP at 10 W when compared to the Iris Xe at 15 W. Heat output doesn't match power consumption directly but, it's a good estimate.

In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the Iris Xe is better than the GeForce MX330.
