Xe-LP GPU Performance: Deus Ex Mankind Divided

Deus Ex is a franchise with a wide level of popularity. Despite the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (DEMD) version being released in 2016, it has often been heralded as a game that taxes the CPU. It uses the Dawn Engine to create a very complex first-person action game with science-fiction based weapons and interfaces. The game combines first-person, stealth, and role-playing elements, with the game set in Prague, dealing with themes of transhumanism, conspiracy theories, and a cyberpunk future. The game allows the player to select their own path (stealth, gun-toting maniac) and offers multiple solutions to its puzzles.

DEMD has an in-game benchmark, an on-rails look around an environment showcasing some of the game’s most stunning effects, such as lighting, texturing, and others. Even in 2020, it’s still an impressive graphical showcase when everything is jumped up to the max.

At the minimum settings, all of the integrated graphics are easily playable, with AMD winning at 15 W but the 28 W Tiger Lake goes a bit above that, within reaching distance of the desktop APU. At a more regular 1080p Maximum, the 20 FPS is perhaps a bit too slow for regular gameplay.

    not rip as intel did respond already few times taking their 5% lead back against ryzen stack.
    Remember this chip will fight against zen3, which should be ~20% gains on AMD side.
    This would be a great chip a year ago it would obliterate 3000 mobile on all fronts BUT against 4800u it seems like a strong contender, but it does not dethrone 4800u as best mobile chip, as you compare 15W with 28W here. This wins in thick bois, while AMD still is unrivaled for thin and light laptops.

    Lets not go overboard there buddy. You have TGL in laptops beating AMD's almost 2 year old architectures since they run a little over a year behind using the prior generation architecture in the case of the GPU over 2 years old. When AMD moves to using current architectures in APU's I think things will be pretty darn close CPU side and AMD should win hands down with RDNA2. Reply

    Zen3 on mobile is probably at least 9 months away. So TGL is competing against Renoir. Reply

    Fortunately we have Big Navi to help us out. I am looking forward to putting Intel back in their shoes with Big Navi. Reply

    Who is "us" lol. Please go back to back AyMD reddit. We don't condone fanboism here. Reply

    I'm wondering if AMD is trying to push this forward.
    For now it seems like consumers can choose TGL or Renoir based on their use scenario.

    Would it not be glorious for Zen 3 to come in at 5 watts with 50% performance as we can expect? 20% isn't so much but 50% would really change things. Reply

    I wouldnt go that far. GPU wise Intel needs way more power to compete with the 15W reinor. Not to mention any laptop with sufficient thermal headroom can use thirde party software to raise TDP for ryzen 4000 mobile, gaining 15-20% performance in games.

    Other benchmarks go back and forth. On the surface intel might have a decent chip, but OEM implementation may not have the same performance.

    You hit the nail on the head here - it's going to be *highly* dependent on how OEMs implement it. Still, good to see they finally sorted their process out - the efficiency of this is markedly improved, it's basically what I expected from Ice Lake in the first place. Reply

    Maybe for literally 3 more weeks until Zen3 comes out, then it's just more embarrassment for Intel added to years of embarrassment... Being beaten by a company with less than a tenth of the resources, there's literally no excuse for it Reply
