Core Ultra 7 155H processor spots on Geekbench
On December 14th of this year, Intel is poised to officially unveil its Meteor Lake processors at a launch event, where they will be christened as Core Ultra. As the release date draws near, various benchmark leaks are surfacing, including one on Geekbench for the Core Ultra 7 155H processor. The test results reveal that its performance surpasses that of the Arc A350M.
The Meteor Lake processors will be equipped with Xe-LPG architecture integrated graphics, blending technologies from the existing Xe-LP architecture and the Arc A series discrete GPUs. They support ray tracing and will be available in two versions: one with 8 groups of Xe-Cores totaling 128 Xe vector engines, and another with 4 groups of Xe-Cores totaling 64 Xe vector engines. The Geekbench database lists the MSI Prestige 16 AI Evo notebook, powered by the Core Ultra 7 155H processor. This full-powered version comes with 8 groups of Xe-Cores, featuring 6 P-Cores, 8 E-Cores, and 2 LP E-Cores, totaling 16 cores and 22 threads, with a maximum turbo frequency of 4.8GHz. The integrated graphics reach a peak frequency of 2250MHz, outstripping the Iris Xe integrated graphics of the current 13th generation Core processors, which cap at 1.5GHz.
In Geekbench’s OpenCL test, the Core Ultra 7 155H scored 27,249, slightly outperforming the Arc A350M and falling short of the Arc A370M with a similar 8-group Xe-core configuration. Its score also trailed behind the Radeon 760M integrated graphics of the Ryzen 5 7640U. It’s worth noting that the Core Ultra 7 155H has a TDP of only 28W, though the exact power setting used by MSI in this notebook remains unclear.
While the OpenCL benchmark results are not directly indicative of actual gaming performance, they do highlight a significant improvement in Intel’s new generation of integrated graphics, offering a respectable performance for low-power laptops. However, they still fall short of AMD’s capabilities. Moreover, AMD is preparing new integrated graphics based on the RDNA 3.5 architecture for their upcoming processors, promising even stronger performance.
