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

We run CounterStrike Global Offensive at a resolution of 1920 x 1080. We use two settings: Low and Medium.

Sandy Bridge was the first processor with a truly integrated GPU to become a revolution, but since then the graphics chips have become a lot faster. The Coffee Lake-GPU is three to four times faster in this game than in the i5 2500K and i7 2600K.
