Today we have the recently released Intel Core i5-1135G7 versus its older brother – Intel Core i5-1035G7. The new one is part of the Tiger Lake line of processors. This is the newest line of mobile CPUs that Intel has to offer and we are excited to see how it performs compared to the older generation.
Respectively, the Core i5-1035G7 is part of the older Ice Lake generation. It was launched in August of 2019 and we are going to see how it compares against its newer counterpart.
This comparison is preliminary and it will be updated when we have more tests available.
There are not many notable changes in the specifications of the Core i5-1135G7 except the much higher base and max frequency sitting at 2.40 and 4.20GHz respectively. This determines how much information can a processor sent and receive. So, a faster CPU clock is always beneficial.
|Intel Core i5-1135G7||Intel Core i5-1035G7|
|Cores / Threads||4 / 8||4 / 8|
|Base / Max frequency||2.40 – 4.20 GHz||1.30 – 3.90 GHz|
|Cache||8 MB Cache||8 MB Cache|
|TDP / up / down||15W / 25W / 10W||15W / 25W / 12W|
The Cinebench R15 benchmark shows some glimpses of hope, as the newer Core i5-1135G7 outperforms the older i5-1035G7 by a small margin.
Results are from the Cinebench 15 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Fritz chess benchmark (the higher the score, the better)
Overall, the newest Core i5-1135G7 is better than its predecessor and it offers more raw power. However, this raw power is not something to behold as we saw only a 15% increase. This means that we should wait for further tests before we conclude our opinion about the Core i5-1135G7. In any case, we are excited to see what Intel is going to bring to the table.
