The famous Twitter researcher @_Rogame shares with us a new benchmark that comes from the 3DMark tool on the AMD Ryzen 7 4700U (Renoir) 15W TDP, which will compete directly with an Intel Core i7-1165G7 CPU of the Tiger Lake architecture.
AMD Ryzen 7 4700U (15W) vs. i7-1165G7 (28W) in 3DMark time spy
The AMD Ryzen 7 4700U processor has an 8-core, 8-threads configuration and operates at 2.00/4.20 GHz. The memory used is an LPDDR4x @ 4266MHz. Meanwhile, the Intel Core i7-1165G7 has a 4-core, 8-wire configuration and runs at a base frequency of 2.80GHz. The difference in this comparison is that the Ryzen chip has a standard TDP of 15W, while the Intel option has a higher TDP of 28W.
The Ryzen 7 4700U went through the 3DMark Time Spy test and achieved a score of 4665 for the CPU and 1066 for the graphics. The rating for the Core i7-1165G7 was 4750 and 1150 points for CPU and graphics respectively. This means that the Intel CPU receives 1.8% more CPU performance and 7.8% more graphics performance. However, almost twice as much TDP is used for this.
Good news for Tiger Lake in this comparison is that it matches or beats its rival Renoir by half the physical cores, but uses almost twice as much power, which is a critical performance factor for a laptop.
Curiously, the score of 1150 points in this graphics test of the Core i7-1165G7 (Intel Xe iGPU) is close to 1193 points of a dedicated GeForce MX 350 GPU.
