This Prebuilt Has A Dedicated Intel Graphics Card! Intel DG1 Iris Xe…

In this video, we take a look at an all-new $750 Prebuilt gaming pc from CyberPowerPC but instead of having an AMD or Nvidia Graphics card, this is using the all-new Intel Xe DG1 dedicated video Card! Can the new INtel VIdeo card compete with AMD and Nvidia? Let’s find out. we run some benchmarks and test out some PC games on the ASUS Intel Iris Xe graphics card.

hey what’s going on everybody it’s eta
00:07
prime back here again
00:08
today we’re going to be taking a look at
00:09
a pretty interesting little pre-built pc
00:11
from cyberpower pc that i recently
00:14
picked up from best buy
00:15
i paid 750 for this pre-bill and really
00:18
what makes it interesting
00:19
is the gpu they’re using in this thing
00:21
they didn’t opt for nvidia or amd
00:24
instead they went with the new intel dg1
00:27
this is a dedicated gpu from intel this
00:29
is actually
00:30
the asus version four gigabytes of vram
00:33
and it’s actually based on their new
00:34
iris xe architecture
00:36
now i’m a big fan of the new intel iris
00:38
xc graphics that are built into their
00:40
new mobile chips be it i5 or i7 and if
00:43
you’re a regular viewer of the channel
00:44
you know i’ve tested a bunch of them out
00:46
but what makes this
00:46
intel gpu special is it’s a dedicated
00:49
unit as you can see it slots into a pcie
00:52
x16
00:53
slot it’s passively cooled because it
00:55
only runs at 30 watts that’s why we
00:56
don’t need any fans on
00:58
it and hopefully we can get some decent
00:59
performance out of this thing
01:01
i’ve been really trying to get my hands
01:02
on one of these because like i mentioned
01:04
i am a big fan
01:05
of the integrated iris xe graphics that
01:07
they’ve been putting in their mobile
01:08
chips be it the 1135 g7 or the 1165 g7
01:13
when it comes to the specs on this new
01:15
intel xe dg1 we have 80 execution units
01:19
4 gigabytes of lp ddr4 x ram running at
01:21
4
01:22
266 megahertz a megahertz gpu clock and
01:26
a 30 watt tdp
01:28
so we don’t need any extra power for
01:30
this it’ll pull everything from that
01:31
pcie x16 slot
01:33
and this was really the main reason i
01:35
picked up this pre-built cyber power pc
01:37
i’ve been trying to get my hands on one
01:38
of these for a while but uh
01:39
you just can’t even buy them gray market
01:41
so i had to buy a full pre-built to test
01:43
this out
01:44
and the price on this pre-belt is 750
01:46
from best buy
01:48
and with the pc market the way it is
01:49
right now this could turn out to be a
01:51
decently priced pre-built pc
01:53
if it performs well but before we jump
01:55
right into testing i want to give you a
01:56
quick rundown on the full specs of this
01:58
cyber power pc
01:59
for the cpu we have an intel i5 11400f
02:03
six course 12 threads base clock 2.6
02:06
gigahertz with the turbo up to 4.4
02:08
8 gigabytes of ddr4 running at 3000
02:10
megahertz in single channel and for my
02:13
test i will be upgrading this to 16
02:15
running in dual channel
02:16
a 500 gigabyte nvme ssd that
02:19
intel dg1 xe gpu and windows 10 home
02:23
plus as you can see we got a little bit
02:24
of rgb and the asus motherboard a 550
02:28
watt power supply
02:29
plus we have built-in ac wi-fi and
02:31
bluetooth 5.0
02:32
when it comes to these pre-builts
02:34
everything that i’ve seen comes with
02:35
single
02:36
channel ram and it’s a great idea to
02:37
upgrade to dual channels so for this i’m
02:39
going to be throwing two eight gigabyte
02:41
sticks in here running at 3600 megahertz
02:44
all right so here we are i’ve got
02:45
everything booted up i’ve been up and
02:47
running for a little while haven’t
02:48
noticed any major issues as you can see
02:50
we have that i5 eleven four hundred f
02:53
sixteen gigabytes of ddr4 running at
02:55
thirty six hundred megahertz
02:57
and the dedicated intel iris xc gpu this
03:00
is that
03:01
asus version uh first thing i wanted to
03:03
see was the maximum gpu clock which they
03:06
state is 1500 megahertz and
03:08
it is running at 1500 and it’ll stay
03:11
here all day
03:12
now with this gpu it has four gigabytes
03:14
of lp ddr4x running at 4206
03:18
megahertz i really wish they would have
03:20
added ddr5 to this it would have helped
03:22
out tremendously but the first thing i
03:24
wanted to take a look at were a few gpu
03:25
benchmarks
03:27
here we have 3d mark night raid with the
03:29
total score of 19
03:30
539 and so far it’s not looking great
03:34
for a dedicated gpu
03:35
now if these were integrated graphics
03:37
it’d be just fine but
03:39
a 19000 on a dedicated gpu just isn’t
03:41
looking great in 2021
03:43
next on the list we have fire strike
03:45
with a 5409
03:47
and finally time spy with a 1853.
03:52
if you’re a regular viewer of the
03:53
channel you know i do a lot of tests on
03:55
the newer 5000 series apus from amd
03:58
and this is on par with the 5700 g and
04:01
all three tests that we just took a look
04:03
at
04:05
but now it’s time to see how this gpu
04:07
really performs and first up we have
04:09
forza horizon 4
04:10
1080p low settings not great but it is
04:13
playable like this we got an average of
04:15
62 fps out of this one
04:33
injustice 2 did pretty well at 1080p low
04:36
settings every once in a while i do see
04:37
it dipped down to around 58 but if i
04:40
didn’t have that frame counter on i’d be
04:41
good to go i wouldn’t even notice it
05:01
i had a good feeling going into
05:02
overwatch that we’d get great
05:03
performance out of it we averaged 83 fps
05:06
1080p medium settings so yeah this one’s
05:08
definitely playable
05:27
fortnite 1080p performance mode with
05:29
high textures on we got an average of
05:31
151 fps it actually did better than i
05:33
thought it would but then again we’re at
05:35
that performance mode
06:04
huh
06:09
[Music]
06:24
rocket league 1080p high settings we
06:26
averaged 87 fps
06:52
so when it comes to gta 5 on the mobile
06:55
intel
06:55
xe graphics i never got really great
06:57
performance but with this one
06:59
here 1080p normal settings we got an
07:01
average of 86 fps you could pump some of
07:04
this stuff
07:04
up to high and it really comes down to
07:06
that cpu just putting out a lot more
07:08
power than a mobile chip
07:14
does
07:27
i also wanted to test cyberpunk 2077
07:30
720p
07:31
low 80 resolution scale we only averaged
07:34
29 fps and this is just one of those
07:37
hard games to run but i’ve been able to
07:39
get better performance out of amd apus
07:41
and the mobile variants of the iris xe
07:44
graphics
07:52
and the final one i tested was red dead
07:54
2 900p
07:55
low settings this is just the benchmark
07:57
unfortunately i couldn’t get this to go
07:59
full screen
08:00
it’s due to driver issues with this new
08:02
intel iris gpu
08:04
and in the benchmark we only averaged 38
08:07
fps
08:08
so in the end i’m disappointed with this
08:10
gpu i was really hoping to see some
08:11
better performance at least
08:13
better performance over let’s say the
08:15
5700g with those built-in radeon 8
08:18
graphics but recently i did a little
08:20
small form factor water cool build on
08:21
that
08:22
and with the night raid benchmarks we
08:24
actually came ahead with that 5700
08:26
g by a bit and it really comes down to
08:27
that 5700 g
08:29
just being a better cpu but if we take a
08:31
look at the graphics score that dg1 did
08:33
beat out the radeon 8 by just a bit
08:35
about 200 points
08:36
but when it comes down to it that radeon
08:38
8 is built into the cpu so we still have
08:41
room and a free pcie slot to add a
08:43
dedicated gpu down the road
08:45
so as it sits right now personally i
08:47
would kind of skip this i would wait for
08:49
the dg2 or the dg3 whatever they’re
08:51
coming up with next this is intel’s
08:53
entry level dedicated gpu and we’ll see
08:56
better ones down the road but with this
08:57
here i really do wish they would have
08:59
went with gddr5 or just ddr5 in general
09:02
over that lp ddr4x so yeah this is one
09:06
to skip uh they do sell a version with
09:08
the rx 560 they also have a version
09:10
that’s a bit more expensive with the
09:12
1650 and i would definitely go with that
09:14
over this intel dg1 but i’m still glad i
09:17
had a chance to get my hands on this gpu
09:19
because like i mentioned i’ve actually
09:20
been wanting to test it for a long time
09:22
intel announced that they’d be releasing
09:24
dedicated gpus a while ago
09:26
and this is one that i really wanted to
09:28
test out but this is definitely not the
09:29
one to buy
09:30
maybe the dg2 or the dg3 i got a feeling
09:33
that intel will get it together with
09:35
these dedicated gpus and we’ll see some
09:37
awesome performance in the next
09:38
iterations
09:39
but that’s going to wrap it up for this
09:41
video really appreciate you watching if
09:43
you have any questions or you want to
09:44
see anything else running on this just
09:45
let me know in the comments below
09:47
if you’re interested in learning more
09:48
about this cyber power pc i will leave a
09:50
few links in the description i’m also
09:52
going to leave some links for alternate
09:53
pre-belts that will perform better
09:56
but that’s it for this one and like
09:57
always thanks for watching
