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.

    This comment seems disingenuous. In the power consumption article, even AMD is boosting up to nearly 40W. It looks like Tiger Lake will be more power efficient than Renoir in lightly threaded workloads, and Renoir would be more efficient in heavily threaded ones that can use the entire SoC. Reply

    Renoir boosts up to about 35W across 8 cores. Tiger Lake boosts to 50W across 4. That's a 42% difference. Even if Renoir actually hit 40W, that'd still be a 25% increase in power draw while boosting. Reply

    I usually have my laptop plugged in... don't really care how long the battery lasts then. Seems like the ability to choose higher performance is a nice feature. Reply

    Did we look at the same charts? Area under the curve, my friend. In extreme usages for thin-and-light laptops,

    15 W Renoir: 2842 seconds for 62660 joules
    15 W Ice Lake: 4733 seconds for 82344 joules
    15 W Tiger Lake: 4311 seconds for 64854 joules

    If we're looking at multi-threaded power consumption, Renoir & TGL should be close with a small lead for Renoir.

    Instantaneous power draw is higher for Tiger Lake, but that 43 W is for mere seconds and not indicative of actually how high it boosts for the entire period.

    We did, I just hadn't had time to take the numbers in fully - and you're absolutely right. Reply

    Whatever you say, buddy 🤷 Reply

    So it is just Ice Lake again without any major improvements outside the integrated GPU people don't care about. Get double the cores for less money with Renoir. Reply

    This isn't 2019 anymore... we went from 4 to 8 cores for the same price and each core is +20 percent with AMD in the last 6 months. Reply
