UHD 730 vs UHD 770: Intel iGPUs tested
A dedicated GPU is typically recommended for gaming. However, the integrated graphics from a CPU can provide a good entry-level gaming experience for casual players. Here, we're comparing two modern integrated GPUs from Intel: the UHD 730 and the UHD 770. These GPUs can be found in Intel 11th gen and 12th gen chips.
The Intel UHD 730 is an iGPU with a benchmark score of 3%. It has a core clock speed of 300 MHz and a boost clock speed of 1300 MHz, with a TDP of 15 W. It supports the latest graphics APIs: DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.6. In terms of benchmark scores, the UHD 730 scores 598 points in 3DMark Graphics and, 6934 points in Geekbench 5 (OpenCL), among others. When tested on various games at 720p medium settings, the UHD 730 delivers an average of 45 FPS in Battlefield V, 19 FPS in Cyberpunk 2077, 23 FPS in Forza Horizon 5, 57 FPS in Grand Theft Auto V, 27 FPS in PUBG, and 27 FPS in The Witcher 3.
On the other hand, the Intel UHD 770 is an iGPU with a slightly higher benchmark score of 4%. Like the UHD 730, it has a core clock speed of 300 MHz but a higher boost clock speed of 1450 MHz. In terms of benchmark scores, the UHD 770 scores 788 points in 3DMark Graphics and, 9253 points in Geekbench 5 (OpenCL), among others. When tested on various games at medium settings with a 720p resolution, the UHD 770 delivers a weak gaming experience with an average of 37 FPS in Battlefield V, 10 FPS in Cyberpunk 2077, 26 FPS in Forza Horizon 5, 55 FPS in Grand Theft Auto V, 33 FPS in PUBG, and 30 FPS in The Witcher 3.
Comparing these two GPUs, the UHD 770 performs better in benchmark scores, scoring 4% compared to the UHD 730's 3%, hence the model number. The UHD 770 also has a higher boost clock speed at 1450 MHz compared to the UHD 730's 1300 MHz. In terms of game benchmarks, the UHD 730 performs better in some cases such as Battlefield V and Grand Theft Auto V, while the UHD 770 outperforms in Cyberpunk 2077, PUBG, and The Witcher 3. The two GPUs perform similarly in Forza Horizon 5.
Ultimately, the performance difference between these two iGPUs falls within the margin of error. But they can offer a reasonable yet basic gaming experience. Anyone interested in more gaming performance, should consider investing in a dedicated GPU, such as the RTX 3050.
