Intel has shown off a Tiger Lake thin-and-light laptop running Battlefield V at 1080p and at over 30fps, on nominally 'High' graphics presets. That's a pretty impressive effort from the Intel Xe GPU baked into the upcoming Tiger Lake mobile chips, and should mean getting a decent level of gaming performance out of your skinny work notebook might actually be possible with this new generation of 10nm chips.
