An interesting development and the story resurfaced as we have performance results of three notebooks featuring Tiger Lake CPU with Integrated Xe, Gen 10 Core i7 with MX 350, and Ryzen 7 4800U Renoir.
Shockingly enough, Tiger Lake notebook with Iris Xe graphic is faster than Nvidia’s discrete Geforce MX 350 as well as AMD’s latest Renoir Ryzen 7 4800U integrated GPU.
Intel has been working together with Blizzard on Variable Rate Shading (VRS), and the feature got implemented in the latest World of Warcraft game engine. The feature is implemented in the World of Warcraft 9.0 and has been available for the last few weeks. The expansion World of Warcraft Shadowlands, also supporting VRS, is set to show its face early next week.
World of Warcraft uses Variable Rate Shading (VRS) dynamically, so there is no on or off switch in settings. If the game detects hardware capable of VRS, it will use it. All the test machines were using the same 1080p low settings.
