Intel’s next generation Iris Xe graphics has made a cameo in the SiSoftware Sandra database, a popular system utility and benchmark program. In addition to offering up some potential specifications, the leak is the first time we have seen “Iris” and “Xe” paired together.

This is not shocking, though it was also never a given that Intel would continue to use its Iris branding going forward. That’s because Intel is looking to shake things up in the graphics space. Its upcoming Gen 12 Xe graphics will make its debut with the company’s mobile Tiger Lake CPUs, and is based on the same underlying architecture that will power the company’s first modern discrete GPU, due out sometime this year.
