Being part of the 11th generation of Intel Tiger Lake-U processors, the Core i7-1165G7 chip again appeared in synthetic tests. This time, he not only showed a noticeable performance increase in relation to the current generation of Ice Lake-U, but also spoke very worthily against the fastest AMD Ryzen 4000 processor of the Renoir-U series.
Recall that the yet unanosized Intel Tiger Lake-U processors are built using an advanced 10nm + process based on the new Willow Cove architecture. In turn, competitors represented by the Ryzen 4000U (Renoir) series of chips released in April of this year use the 7-nm manufacturing process and Zen 2 architecture.
We have already seen the first tests of the Core i7-1165G7 in the 3DMark Time Spy test. There he showed himself quite well, although he is not at all the flagship. This title belongs to the model Core i7-1185G7. According to new data, even a less productive Intel chip was enough to outperform AMD’s rival Ryzen 7 4800U in a single-threaded Geekbench test.
The Core i7-1165G7 processor uses 4 cores and 8 virtual threads that operate in the frequency range from 2.8 to 4.7 GHz. In addition, the chip has 12 MB of cache in the third level and 5 MB of the second level. The graphics processor subsystem is presented by the new architecture of the 12th generation Intel Xe, able to demonstrate a twofold increase in productivity compared to the 11th generation of graphics “blue”.
The Intel processor performance test was carried out as part of Lenovo’s unannounced laptop (model 82CU). In a single-threaded test of Geekbench 4, the Core i7-1165G7 chip was able to score up to 6737 points, in a multi-threaded test – up to 23 414 points. Inside a similar Lenovo laptop (82DM), the Ryzen 7 4800U processor, which has twice as many cores and virtual threads, showed a result of up to 5584 points in a single-threaded test. In the multi-threaded test, the AMD chip scored 27,538 points.
The advantage of the Intel processor over the competitor in single-threaded tasks was up to 20%. Not surprisingly, given the 10 percent superiority in maximum clock frequency – 4.7 GHz versus 4.2 GHz in Ryzen 7 4800U. In a multi-threaded test, the latter turned out to be faster by 17%, which is also obvious, since it has twice as many cores and threads.
At the same time, the difference turned out to be smaller than was demonstrated in 3DMark Time Spy. There, the AMD processor outperformed the Core i7-1165G7 with an advantage of up to 34%. The Intel chip managed to be compared only with the Ryzen 7 4700U, but only due to the fact that the AMD processor participating in the comparison did not have support for SMT technology. Compared to Core i7-1065G7 (Ice Lake), the new Core i7-1165G7 is about 17% faster in single-threaded applications and up to 26% faster in multi-threaded applications.
The junior Intel Core i5-1135G7 model, which the user found in the base of the same Geekbench, also proved worthy Momomo_US. In the single-threaded test, the chip scored 6046 points, in multi-threaded test – 21 469 points. For comparison, the AMD Ryzen 7 4700U scored 4914 points in the “single-threaded” mode, and in the multi-threaded test its maximum result was 23 503 points. The gap is not so significant, considering the twice as many cores with the same number of threads – 8/8 versus 4/8 for Intel.
When comparing Intel Core i5-1135G7 with Ryzen 5 4500U, the latter lost outright. He scored 4756 points in a single-threaded test and 19,223 points in a multi-threaded test.
The official announcement of the 11th generation Intel Tiger Lake processors is expected in the second half of 2020.
