It sounds like Intel is trying to make every excuse possible to show why they used a 25w TDP setup, when in reality they are only going with that not because of some reason on the AMD side but because their top performing IceLake chip is a 25w TDP design. Intel has 25w, 15w, and 9w parts. When you drop down from there they make heavy cuts to the graphics capability because you no longer get Iris Plus graphics when you dont use the top model.
Then on top of it all, Intel is probably using their 25w TDP model, which is only 25w when at base speed. Yet it runs turbo boost and draws more than that.
and on another article they give more info about what this 25w chip used in the AMD comparison test is:
Intel also provided a series of gaming benchmarks pitting the Vega-powered 25W Ryzen 7 3700U against a pre-production 25W Ice Lake processor. Intel declined to specify if this processor will come to market
So ya, Intel is completely BSing the test again like usual.
