Recently, Intel launched its 11th generation 10nm-based Intel Tiger Lake CPUs with promising success for AMD. However, their benchmarks weren’t convincing enough as they never used standard benchmark tools like Geekbench or Cinebench. However, today a bunch of new Geekbench 5 scores from the new Intel Tiger Lake flagship Core i7-1185G7 have surfaced on an MSI computer, and thanks to @TUM_APISAK for spotting.
So comparing the upcoming Intel flagship CPU to the current AMD flagship APU is a fair thing, and I have a Ryzen 7 4700U APU on my laptop as the Ryzen 7 4800U hasn’t landed in India yet. So if you compare a 4-core / 8-thread CPU to an 8-core / 8-thread APU, the difference is huge and far beyond my expectations.
As we know, the new Core i7-1185G7 will have a base clock of 3.0 GHz and a boost clock rate of up to 4.8 GHz. This was recently confirmed. Plus, the CPU has plenty of cache memory – 5MB L2 cache and 12MB L3 cache – all in a 15W standard TDP package that is configurable up to 28W (PL1).
While the Ryzen 7 4700U with all its 8 cores and 8 threads has a 2.0 GHz base and a 4.1 GHz boost clock rate as well as a 4 MB L2 cache and an 8 MB L3 cache having. So I know that a comparison with the Ryzen 7 4800U, whose highest score I also recorded, would be sufficient:
As we can see, the Intel Core i7-1185G7 achieved a massive 1610 points in the single-core range with this massive 4.8 GHz boost clock rate and 6113 points in the multi-core test with only 4 cores and 8 threads. On the other hand, the Ryzen 7 4700U with 8 cores and 8 threads managed to score 1137 points in single-core and 5136 points in multi-core tests, suggesting a clear and comfortable win for Intel.
When the new Core i7-1185G7 is compared to AMD’s real flagship Ryzen 7 4800U, the average single-core score in multi-core tests is around 1150 points and 6500 points. So AMD is still leading in multi-core benchmarks, while it loses to Intel in single-core tests like its brother Ryzen 7 4700U. However, one thing is obvious: the competition is intensifying!
One advantage that Intel has this time over AMD is the new Intel Xe graphics, which are said to be far superior to those of AMD. If Intel can rate these new Tiger Lake CPUs well, it can once again demonstrate its performance superiority over many consumers.
