Today we meet again with a new duel between the Intel Core i7-1165G7 and the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U, except that this time the performance difference is much smaller between both CPUs, which translates into performance improvement for the CPU of Intel.
Recall that the 11th Gen Intel Core high-end laptop processor offers 4 cores and 8 Willow Cove @ 10nm processing threads at a Base / Turbo frequency of 2.80 / 4.40 GHz along with Intel Xe graphics with a TDP of 28W. This processor was once again seen with the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U, with 8 cores and 16 processing threads under the Zen2 @ 7nm microarchitecture with Base / Turbo frequencies of 1.80 / 4.20 GHz, Radeon Vega 8 graphics and a TDP of 15W.
Being fast and direct, the conclusions are easy to draw, and that is that the CPU of Intel gave in the 3DMark 11 a score for the CPU of 11879 points compared to the 11917 points achieved by the AMD Ryzen (0.32% difference from performance), while in the graphic section the Intel Xe took the cat to the water with a score of 6912 vs 6121 points, which translates into a difference of almost 13%.
Now we can do many readings, and that is that 4 Willow Cove @ 10nm cores is equivalent to 8 Zen2 cores, but of course, the Intel CPU does almost twice the TDP, with higher frequencies, and of course, where there is a higher performance improvement, in the graphics, we are comparing some Intel Xe that have not yet come out with a Vega architecture with 3 years old. Added to that is that the 3DMark 11 does not scale well when adding more cores, so each one can draw the conclusion they want. Whether blue or red, you can take any data and turn it around for your interest.
