Integrated Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics Xe 770

Intel UHD Graphics Xe 770 is based on intel’s Alder Lake GT1 10 nm Xe architecture powered by 256 shading units, 16 texture mapping units, and 8 ROPs. In terms of performance, it is very similar to its predecessor Intel UHD Graphics Xe 750 and is capable of playing games such as Apex legends at 40+ FPS at 720p and GTA 5 at 30+ FPS at low settings.

Cinebench Benchmark

Based on cinema 4d the Cinebench measures CPU performance in animation, 3d-modeling, simulation, and rendering. Single-core performance measures the responsiveness of the software under active workloads while the multi-core score measures the CPU’s ability to handle tasks such as rendering, encoding, and other workloads that benefit from better multi-threaded performance.
