Intel boasts battery performance superiority over AMD in Intel tests

Intel boasts battery performance superiority over AMD in Intel tests

Intel has taken quite a beating this year, from AMD's unwavering onslaught to the damning benchmarks of the Apple Silicon M1. The launch of its 11th-gen Tiger Lake processors for laptops has seemingly been pushed to the sidelines as a consequence and it is looking for ways to get back into the spotlight. What better way to do that than by calling out its eternal rival AMD over the latter's battery performance and, sure enough, the benchmarks ran by Intel show it having the upper hand in that particular use case.

ARM-based laptops are starting to become trendy especially with the introduction of Macs running on Apple's M1 Silicon. Even on the server side, AMD and NVIDIA are closing in on the lucrative market, especially with the latter's GPU-based approach. Intel is now pushing back with its own new discrete GPU platform whose latest incarnation is being put at the service of Android games on the cloud.

Apple Silicon M1 benchmarks give credence to performance claims

Apple Silicon M1 benchmarks give credence to performance claims

Apple's announcement of the first generation of Macs running on its own Silicon processors was unsurprisingly filled with bold claims. Given the novelty of the M1 chip and its ARM-based design, there might be some apprehension if the new MacBooks will be able to hold their own against Intel's most powerful processors. Geekbench scores for these new computers have started popping up that does seem to confirm Apple's claims, trumping Intel-based MacBooks except in one case.

Apple made some huge M1 Silicon claims today

Apple made some huge M1 Silicon claims today

There's no reality distortion field quite like Apple's, or so the thinking goes, and that's even more the case when it comes to a huge architectural shift like the launch of the M1, its debut homegrown chipset for Mac. First of the Apple Silicon line-up to be announced since the company confirmed it would be phasing out Intel and moving to its own SoC design back at WWDC 2020 a few months ago, the M1 will initially be at the heart of a new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13, and Mac mini.

Intel Iris Xe MAX discrete GPU launched for laptops

Intel Iris Xe MAX discrete GPU launched for laptops

Intel may have the lion's share of the PC desktop and laptop CPU market, at least for now, but it has struggled to gain any foothold in the graphics sector of the industry. It has always been touting its Iris graphics technologies and while they have definitely improved over the years, they still mostly fall short compared to those with a discrete graphics card, especially on desktops. Laptops, on the other hand, offer an opportunity for Intel to break through and that is exactly what its new Iris Xe MAX discrete GPUs promise for thin and light laptops.

16-inch MacBook Pro 2020 refresh might not have Apple Silicon

It is pretty much old news by now that Apple is going all out on ARM, at least the flavor of the computing architecture that it will be using on its Apple Silicon processors. The shift won't be immediate, though, and Apple is giving it about two years' time. But while it will soon be moving most of its computers over to that side, it seems at least one specific MacBook Pro model will keep its foot solidly on Intel ground.
