Benchmarks (iGPU): CounterStrike Global Offensive (1920x1080)

3DMark is a useful tool to determine relative performance differences, but for performance in the real world we have to look at real games. CounterStrike Global Offensive is run at a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. We use two settings: Low and Medium. 

Taking out opponents in CS:GO is slightly faster with the Coffee Lake iGPU than with Kaby Lake. The 8600K and 8700K are about 10 to 15 percent faster than their predecessors in this benchmark.
