Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the former Russian Federation. It is the third installment in the Metro video game series based on Dmitry Glukhovskys novels, following the events of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. This game title was released in February 2019 and received mostly positive reviews.

We tested Metro Exodus with the Low image quality preset with the DX12 API using the built-in benchmark utility.

Total War: Three Kingdoms

Total War: Three Kingdoms is a turn-based strategy real-time tactics video game developed by Creative Assembly and published by Sega. As the 12th mainline entry (the 13th entry) in the Total War series, the game was released for Microsoft Windows on May 23, 2019. Like its predecessors, Total War: Three Kingdoms is a turn-based strategy real-time tactics game. Set in the Three Kingdoms period (220280), players control one of the game’s twelve factions, who must eliminate other factions, unify China and become its ultimate ruler.

We ran the games built-in benchmark on the battle scene with the ‘Low’ image quality preset. V-Sync was disabled during testing.

World War Z

World War Z is a third-person shooter video game developed by Saber Interactive and published by Mad Dog Games. It was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 16, 2019. A proprietary game engine named the Swarm Engine was used to power the game.

In World War Z we set the game to run with the ‘Low’ image quality preset and disabled Vertical sync (V-Sync) for testing. We used the games built-in benchmark utility.

1080P Gaming Benchmark Results:

The Intel Iris Plus Graphics with 64 EUs in the Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor is super impressive when tested at both 15W and 25W configurations. One of the biggest areas of improvement for Ice Lake is certainly the graphics! The new Gen11 discrete graphics solution managed to take gaming to the next level as the Intel Core i7-8565U processor when compared to Intel UHD Graphics 620 on last generation processors.

We saw the following performance gains when we compared the new 15W ‘Ice Lake’ part to the existing 15W ‘Whiskey Lake’ part in the HP Spectre X360 13 Convertible:

  • World of Tanks enCore (Minimum): 50%
  • World of Tanks enCore (Medium): 79%
  • Rainbow Six Siege: 118%
  • Metro Exodus: 60%
  • Total War: Three Kingdoms: 50%
  • World War Z: 50%

We are seeing over a 50% performance increase in these five titles and that is amazing. When configured at 25W we see that it is possible to play respectable game titles at 1080P with integrated graphics.
