Intel's Tiger Lake-based chips will probably offer a big boost in GPU performance. The first Gen12 iGPU has appeared on CompuBench, and it happens to have 96 execution units. That's a healthy increase from high-end Skylake's Iris Pro P580 (72 EUs) and Coffee Lake's UHD 630 (24 EUs).

TechPowerUp estimates that the additional EUs will result in 40% better performance than Intel's current iGPU solutions. Gen12 also features some substantial architectural changes (e.g., the EU's prior responsibility of ensuring data coherency is now being offloaded to a reworked compiler) that should reduce latency.

The Gen12 iGPU that was benchmarked increases the EU count by 33% compared to Intel's top performing iGPU - add to that performance increases through the "extensive architecture rework", and we could be looking at an Intel iGPU part that achieves some 40% (speculative) better performance than their current best performer. The part was clocked at 1.1 GHz - and the Iris Pro P580 also clocked to that maximum clock under the best Boost conditions.

If you can’t beat the CPU, hit them on the GPU.

seems like that was AMDs old strategy after purchasing ATI and hyping APUs as the next big thing...

I wouldn't say nowhere... it did land them consoles. But I think that was more an accident of being at the right place at the right time, and less concerted consequence of an acquisition performed 10 years prior. It certainly didn't set the PC or laptop world on fire like they had originally planned.
