The blue team is gearing up for the launch of new Tiger Lake-U series processors based on their new SuperFin transistors that will give superior performance than last-gen Ice Lake CPUs. As the launch of these processors nears, September 2, more leaks surfaces online which help to compare with its sole rival AMD whose Ryzen 4000U processors are flooded in the laptop market.
Intel’s upcoming mid-range Core i5-1135G7 benchmarks have just surfaced online (via @davideneco25320) and have been compared against the current best mid-range APU – the AMD Ryzen 5 4600U that comes with 6 cores and 12 threads. The Core i5-1135G7 is 4 cores and 8 threads with 1.25 MB (5 MB in total) L2 cache but a lower L3 cache of 8 MB along with a 2.40 GHz base and 4.20 GHz boost clock.
The Intel CPU scored a total of 1349 points in the single-core test while scoring a healthy 4527 points in the multi-core benchmark. On the other hand, the AMD APU scores around 1100 points in the single-core and about 5800 points in the multi-core tests.
Although being an entry-level Core i5 from Intel, this is at least 22% faster in single-core while is only 28% slower in multi-threaded workloads despite having 8 fewer threads. So, these new Intel Tiger Lake CPUs are very powerful and promising as well, however, it will be interesting to see how Intel prices these SKUs for notebooks to compete against AMD.
