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.

    2.14 was NOT AVAILABLE as a mainline version when the test was built. It was recommended for stability that we used the 2.13 stable. REALLY Reply

    Well I'm going to thank you for sharing a very interesting article.

    Reading that, seeing the AVX-512 results in the review, and reading about Larrabee (whose legacy is AVX-512), all underlines what a powerful addition AVX-512 is to x86.

    Even if it does need Intel engineers to code, just adding it to NAMD and Gromacs is huge.

    Intel: let's run our mobile cpu at 50watts, then we'll beat amd!
    What about battery life?
    Who cares!
