During Intel Platform Advantage Briefing Session held on Sept 20, 2019 (Mumbai, India), Intel shared insights about CPU performance via different benchmarking tools. The output as expected scored high on the performance-oriented scale delivering elevated performance over Ryzen family as we had observed through the briefing. We are in touch with Intel to get us a unit for our testers to have hands-on real performance through our perspective of usage in gaming and benchmarking bringing out performance reports soon. Till the time we bring you key points of briefing explaining how Intel aims to provide the best for gaming and processing.
Starting with Intel Core i7-9700K, Intel pitched the processor to be a winner in terms of performance across various AAA titles, Core i9-9900K leads in productivity, gaming, and single-threaded performance. With a direct comparison with Ryzen 9 3900X, Intel’s test results at the briefing showed the chips can overwhelm AMD CPU’s. (Performance results shared based on Test as of July 23, 2019 )
H Series Processor’s in no doubt unpacks everyday loads in seconds and provide users a helpful platform for Gaming, Content Creation and Mega-Tasking. Performance results of two systems HP ProBook 450 G6 powered by Intel Core i3-8145U and Acer Nitro 5 powered by Intel Core i5-9300H were showcased in comparison to Asus TUF Gaming FX505DT that runs on AMD Ryzen 7 3750H.
All systems feature 8GB DDR4 RAM, SSD and an Nvidia 1650 GPU except HP Pro books having Intel UHD Graphics 620. For every workload that includes media editing works, Intel Core i3-8145U performed a little better or almost equal to Ryzen 7, while Core i5 delivers from 15 to 34% more power. 9th Gen Intel H series processors are built for demanding games, offering around 10% to 20% more power on different games.
Intel also shared info on 10th Generation CPU that brings Gen11 graphics for end-user. VRS plays a vital role in boosting up the battery performance to some extent, a proprietary tech by Intel VRS (Variable Rate Shading) blur distant objects that powers the FPS and consume a little less processing power. In a short demo video which was not actually of a game, we saw VRS blurs distant objects that are hardly noticeable. Results of Ice Lake-U 15W VRS Enabled scored higher than in terms of performance.
A key factor to maximize performance explicitely explained during the briefing was Intel Adaptix Dynamic tuning technology which gives around 8 to 12% of additional gains. It helps OEMs to tune systems for max performance using machine learning algorithm and advance power control settings. Systems smartly use high power to deliver the best performance when it does not cross a rate of skin temperature giving out high processing power to the apps running and smartly scaled down a stable rate without impacting current work. This can help consumers to get +18% more power in terms of workloads, based on Intel and OEM Collaboration.
Thanks to Mr. Hiral Gheewala, Director of Marketing and Performance at Intel for hosting the briefing and sharing all valuable details with us.
