Laptops are Acer Swift 3X, the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1, and the Asus VivoBook Flip TP470 and are available for you to buy now in some countries. “We set out to redefine the role of discrete graphics in thin-and-light laptops and address a growing segment of creators who want more portability. Iris Xe MAX graphics and Intel Deep Link technology serve as examples of the kind of platform-level innovation that Intel plans to bring to market in the future as we execute to our scalable Xe roadmap.” Roger Chandler, vice president and general manager of Client XPU Product and Solutions in the Intel Architecture said.
Intel also introduced Deep Link Technology in Iris Xe MAX graphics which collects multiple processing engines under a common software framework to bring better performance to PCs. Additionally, "Deep Link’s Dynamic Power Share enables all the power and thermal resources to be dedicated to the CPU when the discrete graphics is idle, resulting in up to 20% better CPU performance3 when a creator attempts a sustained task such as executing a final render." said at the launch.
Intel also claimed, "Iris Xe MAX graphics also deliver great thin-and-light 1080p gaming on popular games". Intel is also adding two new features two enhance the gaming experience, Game Sharpening and Instant Game Tuning.
