New benchmark results have appeared online, apparently showing the Intel Core i7-1165G7, an 11th generation Tiger Lake chip that clearly outperforms the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U, a Renoir APU, in terms of single-threaded performance .
If these results, shared by well-known Leaker @TUM_APISAK, are correct, it shows that Intel has some nifty tricks up its sleeve in the fight against AMD.
The interesting thing about these results is that the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U largely dominates the Intel Core i7-1165G7 – which is to be expected given the specification. The AMD Ryzen 7 4800U is a 7 nm chip with eight Zen 2 cores, 1
The Intel Core i7-1165G7 is an upcoming CPU that is said to be a 10 nm processor with four Willow Cove cores, eight threads, a base clock of 2.8 GHz and a boost of 4.7 GHz.
These additional cores and threads give the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U an immediate advantage (and that’s before we even consider the advantages of a 7 nm architecture compared to the 10 nm ++ of the Intel chip).
According to the PassMark PerformanceTest results, the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U scored a total of 17,552, a good deal more than the 13,372 that the Intel Core i7-1165G7 appears to achieve.
When it comes to single-threaded performance, the Intel chip beats the AMD chip with 3,273 points for the i7 compared to 2,631 points for the Ryzen 7 – a significant gap for Team Blue.
A pinch of salt, please
It seems that the higher clock speeds of the Intel chip really contribute to single-thread performance
While these results paint an interesting picture in which the upcoming CPU battle between Intel and AMD will not be entirely clear, we should exercise caution with these results.
First, while the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U is a laptop chip that is included in products that are currently on the market, the Intel Core i7-1165G7 is only rumored, so we don’t know how accurate the specs are.
As Tom’s Hardware points out, the sample size of the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U 55 is 55, while the results of the Intel Core i7-1165G7 are taken from a single sample. So if there is a problem with the sample, this can be disproportionately affecting the results.
Still, it does give us an interesting hint at Tiger Lake’s strengths and weaknesses, and hopefully we’ll find out soon – Intel is hosting a small event on September 2nd that is expected to officially reveal its Tiger Lake lineup.
