We added Intel HD Graphics 515 to our Top Laptop Graphics Ranking and it landed on position #105
Since we’ve got the new Yoga 710 and 900s (which aren’t on the market yet), we’re putting them through benchmark tests, so that their CPUs and GPUs can take their places in our Top Laptop Graphics Ranking list. That is now done – both of them use the ultra low voltage Intel Core m5-6Y54 processor with integrated Intel HD Graphics 515 GPU. The latter is based on Intel Gen. 9 (Skylake) architecture and it’s known by the codename Skylake GT2.
Intel HD Graphics 515 is currently at 105th place in our ranking list, overtaking the NVIDIA GeForce 810M discrete GPU. HD Graphics 515 is behind AMD Radeon R5 M230 (2GB DDR3), which is 9% faster in 3DMark Cloud Gate, 31% in Fire Strike and 13% in Unigine Heaven 3.0.
We ended up with varying results with HD Graphics 515, which can be attributed to different implementations and design limitations – the Core M family has configurable TDP and can be cooled passively, as is the case with the two Yoga notebooks we tested.
