What you need to know
- Leaked benchmarks emerged of a PC with 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake processors with integrated Xe graphics.
- The benchmarks compare the chip to a system with NVIDIA MX350 graphics.
- As with all leaks, these reported figures need to be taken in context and with a grain of salt.
Leaked benchmarks of 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake processors with integrated Xe graphics show the processors going toe-to-toe with an NVIDIA MX350. Well-known leaker "Rogame" shared the leaked benchmarks on Twitter, which compare the Intel Tiger Lake i7-1165G7 with integrated Xe graphics against a PC with a 25W NVIDIA MX350 discrete GPU (via Videocards). The comparison sees the Intel Tiger Lake processor beat the 25W system powered by NVIDIA MX350 graphics in several categories.
Rogame highlights that the Intel Core i7-1165G7 has 96 execution unites, 768 cores, and clocks in at 1.3GHz. This particular chip is not the highest end of the upcoming Tiger Lake lineup, as it is rated with a 15W base TDP. These chips can go up to 28W and there is a higher-end 11th gen Intel chip coming as well called the Intel Core i7-1185G7.
The Geekbench 4 OpenCL benchmark shows the Intel chip with Xe graphics just edging out the system with an NVIDIA MX350. The Intel system earns a score of 59,845 while the NVIDIA MX350 system gets a score of 59,828.

Impressive ! I've seen similar results in 3dmarkhttps://t.co/7yamNE9yqD pic.twitter.com/OICPKkKvXD
As highlighted by TechRadar, the Intel system earns a better score in the Gaussian Blur test while the NVIDIA MX350 system gets higher marks in the Particle Physics test.
As with any leaks, and especially in the case of leaked benchmarks, these results need to be taken with a grain of salt. If genuine, these benchmarks indicate the ballpark that the 11th Gen Intel chips with Xe graphics are in, rather than show their superiority against a specific system. Further benchmarks would be required to create a clearer picture.
Rogame does note on Twitter that similar results have been shown in 3DMark, which gives credence to these latest leaks.
