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.

    Wow, this naming scheme is even worse than the previous one. I've been patiently explaining to people for years that the number after the I is less important than that last letter.

    E.G. H > U > Y

    I can't even imagine how you'd explain this to someone who isn't a hardcore enthusiat. You basicallly need to look up each CPU number to know where in the stack it is. Might as well give up on the numbers entirely.

    I am with you but it sounds like the 85 in 1185G7 is the new U. Reply

    Agree with Ian and Andrei. The power/naming shenanigans are just miserable. Reply

    Intel's product naming division is its own circle of hell. Reply

    You guys really REALLY need to update NAMD to the 2.14 nightly builds to get a real idea of what Willow Cove can do in a workload that is very heavily used in HPC: https://www.hpcwire.com/2020/08/12/intel-speeds-na... Reply
