Where the Tiger Lake performance is most exciting is with the Gen12 Xe Graphics. Here are some of the Xe Graphics tests while many more Linux numbers are coming in the days/weeks ahead with more gaming and compute tests along with varying driver configurations and more.

With Basemark's Vulkan benchmark there is a huge leap in performance from Ice Lake Gen11 to Tiger Lake Gen12 and that also positions Intel's graphics performance well ahead of the Vega graphics found on the Renoir APUs. At 1080p with medium quality settings, the Basemark performance jumped by 60% from Ice Lake to Tiger Lake or nearly 3x the performance of the aging Gen9 graphics that have been around since Skylake until Ice Lake.

Unigine Superposition while still slow at 1080p even with low quality settings did also see a large uplift out of the Gen12 Xe Graphics that also went from the Dell XPS Ice Lake being slower than AMD Renoir to Tiger Lake being faster.

Not only were the Xe Graphics a big boost for conventional OpenGL/Vulkan performance, but also for compute making use of the Vulkan API with Tencent's NCNN framework there is much uplift as well for most models.

The Tiger Lake laptop was also performing well with ParaView for workstation visualizations.
