Till now, most of Intel’s Tiger Lake benchmarks we’ve seen were pretty mediocre: low boost clocks, unnamed engineering samples, and especially underwhelming CPU scores. Now, as the 11th Gen launch draws near, the results have started to become more and more relevant, giving us an idea of what to expect from the Tiger Lake mobile CPUs. A recent benchmark unearthed by our Twitter friends show just how capable Intel’s latest design really is:
Yes, that’s right. This Core i7-1165G7 sample running at 4.4GHz is as much as 55% faster than the Renoir based Ryzen 7 4700U. In terms of CPU performance, you’re looking at a 13% advantage while the graphics capabilities are ahead of the 7nm Vega GPU by around 27%. This is despite the fact that the Ryzen 7 packs twice as many cores, indicating that Willow Cove will come have a potent IPC boost, putting Tiger Lake’s single-threaded performance significantly ahead of the Zen 2 competition.
Luckily for AMD, Tiger Lake (like Ice Lake) will launch in limited numbers and Rocket Lake will likely make up for this with a desktop and mobile launch in the first half of 2021.
