First up is looking at the integrated graphics performance across the tested laptops.

Going from even Tiger Lake to Alder Lake P there was a nice boost to the graphics performance under Linux. With the DDraceNetwork platformer game was a significant boost with the new Core i7 1280P graphics performance and quite a dramatic leap compared to the days of Intel Gen9 graphics.

With the Unvanquished open-source first person shooter, the Core i7 1280P graphics were competing with the Vega graphics found in the Ryzen 9 5900HX laptop with a neck-and-neck battle.

But on a performance-per-Watt basis off the SoC power consumption reported by RAPL/PowerCap sysfs interfaces, the Ryzen 5000 series were delivering better power efficiency.

Across all of the graphics tests, the Core i7 1280P was exhibiting much better performance than the prior generation Tiger Lake Xe Graphics and quite healthy uplift over the older Intel notebooks. The Core i7 1280P graphics performance tended most often to be similar to the Radeon Vega graphics with the Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U or in more demanding situations closer to the Ryzen 9 5900HX. But it will be interesting to see shortly how RDNA2 graphics with AMD Rembrandt performs.

For workstation visualizations too, the Core i7 1280P Alder Lake P laptop was competing with the Ryzen 5000 series on Linux.
