we were able to see test results in 3DMark 11 that showed similar performance gains, although this 3Dmark looks quite old. So the latest benchmark in 3DMark Time Spy has been leaked by Rogame showing similar CPU performance, but with even better graphics performance. The Intel Core i7-1165G7 is the second fastest Tiger Lake-U chip that falls just below the Core i7-1185G7. The processor has 4 cores and 8 threads that operate at a base frequency of 2.8 GHz and a boost frequency of 4.7 GHz. The CPU is accompanied by the Intel Xe graphics engine and offers up to 2 times more performance than Gen 11 graphics chips.
In terms of performance, the CPU was compared to the Ryzen 7 4700U which is also the second fastest in the Ryzen 4000 APU series and is just below the Ryzen 7 4800U . Both CPUs have been tested with their maximum TDP settings of 28W (Tiger Lake) and 25W (Renoir). The Core i7-1165G7 additionally featured 4266MHz LPDDR4x memory which is going to be a standard implementation on most, if not all, Tiger Lake based laptops.
The Intel Core i7-1165G7 scores 5,304 points in the CPU test which is on par with the 5302 points of the Ryzen 7 4700U. In graphics, the Tiger Lake chip beats its competitor with an advantage of almost 35%. When compared to the Ryzen 7 4800U, the Intel chip still sees itself leading the way in graphics testing by as much as 20% but due to the Ryzen 7 4700U’s double threads, Renoir’s flagship takes a 34% advantage at 25W. Intel Xe Embedded Graphics seems to take a stand against AMD’s current generation of Vega Embedded Graphics , so an interesting battle is coming in notebooks, at least, until AMD launches its Ryzen 5000 with revamped iGPUs. We will keep you informed.
