Intel Core Ultra Meteor Lake CPUs ~26% Faster than Ryzen 7000, Over 50% Faster in Gaming [Official Benchmarks]

Intel has released benchmarks of its 1st Gen Core Ultra “Meteor Lake” processors. These numbers claim a modest multi-threaded advantage over AMD’s Ryzen 7000 offerings with roughly the same single-threaded performance. The graphics performance has been prioritized, beating the Radeon 780M in most games. Despite leveraging the 4nm-class Intel 4 process node, the Core Ultra processors sip about as much power as the Ryzen 7000 SoCs (built on TSMC N4).

Intel claims its Core Ultra 7 165H offers an aggregate multi-threaded CPU uplift of 11% over the Ryzen 7 7850U. At the same power draw, that’s a single-digit percentage increment over the 13th Gen Core i7-1370P.

104|922 vs 96|729

Cinebench isn’t one of Intel’s favored benchmarks, but here we are. The Core Ultra 7 155H posts single and multi-core scores of 104 and 922 points, respectively. For reference, the Ryzen 7 7840 nets 96 and 729 points in the single and multi-core benchmarks, respectively. We’re looking at similar single-threaded performance, with a 26% advantage for the Core Ultra 7 155H in the multi-core segment.

In 3DMark TimeSpy, the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H posts a graphics score of 10,429 points, up from 8,480 on the Ryzen 7 7840U. That adds to a ~23% lead for the Meteor Lake part. Firestrike paints a similar picture, with 18 FPS on the Core Ultra 7 155H and 15 FPS on the Ryzen 7 7840U.

In League of Legends, the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H averages 208 FPS, up from 138 FPS on the AMD Ryzen 7 7840U at the same settings. The 13th Gen Core i7-1370p is the slowest, with an average of 133 FPS. In this case, the Core Ultra 7 holds a 50% lead over the Ryzen 7 7840U.

Lastly, we have a 1080p gaming performance chart using a power envelope of 28W. On average, the Core Ultra 7 155H is 10% faster than the Ryzen 7 7840U, with deltas as high as 70% and 41% in Dying Light 2 and Final Fantasy XIV, respectively.
