Review: Intel NUC 13 PRO – i7-1360p


Synthetic GPU performance

Synthetic GPU performance

Now that we know the performance of the CPU part, we can move to the GPU on some synthetic benchmarks. Here, we will compare the performance of the intel Xe 96sp to the Intel Xe 96sp of the Prestige 13 Evo from MSI, which uses the same graphics architecture. The tests were performed on a Dell SN2421NX 1080p display with HDMI.

3DMark Timespy

We start with 3DMark Time Spy, here we are at the level of the i7 1280p and i7-1360p of the MSI laptops with Intel Xe 96sp. Nothing more normal since all of them have the same graphic part.

3DMark Timespy extreme

Just like for Time Spy, the extreme version of the benchmark shows performances very close to the other machines based on Intel Xe 96sp. However, there is a non-negligible difference on the CPU, with a higher performance than the i7-12700H of the Dell Inspiron 14 Plus.

3DMark Firestrike

On 3DMark Firestrike, the NUC seems to lag behind the MSI Prestige in CPU performance.

3DM Firestrike Extreme

On 3DMark Firestrike Extreme, the gap widens a bit more on the GPU side.

3DM Firestrike Ultra

On Firestrike Ultra, the performance of this Intel IGP does not allow to exceed 1300 points.

Just like the Prestige 13 Evo A13M from MSI, this Intel 13 PRO NUC doesn’t have enough performance on the GPU side to make it a gaming PC. Since both share the same Intel Xe 96sp IGP, the conclusion will be the same. Except for small games such as Minecraft or lightly loaded titles like CS:GO or League of Legend otherwise, skip it.
