The new Tiger Lake architecture by Intel is the 11th generation of Intel Core mobile processors to hit the market. Tiger Lake is the follow-up to Intel’s Ice Lake and it tries to improve on all the important aspects of a mobile CPU – battery life and power consumption.
In this comparison, we are going to see if the new Intel Core i7-1165G7 is a worthy opponent of the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U. The Ryzen 7 4800U is based on AMD’s Zen 2 microarchitecture and is one of the company’s newest additions to the family that boasts huge performance and efficiency. The AMD Ryzen 7 4800U is based on AMD’s Zen 2 microarchitecture. This will be a classic battle between the blue team and the red team.
This comparison is preliminary and it will be updated when we have more tests available.
The specifications of both CPUs have a few major differences between them. The Ryzen 7 4800U has 4 more cores and 8 more threads. This in turn means that it will perform better in tasks that require multiple cores. These types of tasks are photo editing, video editing, 3D modeling, and graphics-intensive games. The Core i7-1165G7, however, has 12MB of cache versus the 8MB that the Ryzen has.
|Intel Core i7-1165G7||AMD Ryzen 7 4800U|
|Cores / Threads||4 / 8||8 / 16|
|Base / Max frequency||2.80 – 4.40 GHz||1.80 – 4.20 GHz|
|Cache||12 MB Cache||8 MB Cache|
|TDP / up / down||15W / 28W / 10W||15W / 25W / 10W|
The Intel Core i7-1165G7 gets beaten by the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U with a bit more than 50% in our 3D rendering benchmark.
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)
Our current conclusion suggests that even the recently released Intel Core i7-1165G7 is not a match for the Ryzen 7 4800U. Our preliminary benchmark shows that the newly released Intel Core i7-1165G7 gets crushed by the Ryzen 7 4800U with a little bit more than 50%, which is a huge deficit for a brand new processor.
