Intel: New Product Next Month
There is certain excitement for Intel Tiger Lake CPUs according to leaks. But still many expect Intel to officially unveil their product next month. That anticipation has been mostly built on its graphics capabilities of its Tiger Lake CPUs and not raw CPU power alone. Recently, Intel had to face a major loss in the stock market making a total of $42 billion. But this may increase their value in the stock market.
What and Where Compared?
The previous comparison with its rival AMD Ryzen 4000 series CPUs hasn’t gone in the favour of Intel. But from the latest PassMark scores from the obvious benchmark leaker @Tum_APISAK show at least one bright spot for the Tiger Lake against its formidable Ryzen 7 opponent.
Now, to be clear, this is a pretty specific win that Tiger Lake has chalked up with its Core i7-1165G7 CPU going up against the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U. It’s the same pairing that we have seen tip consistently in AMD’s favor in previous leaks over the last few months.
Scores of Intel Tiger Lake vs AMD Ryzen 4000
But looking at scores this time, in the single-threaded PassMark results, the Tiger Lake CPU managed to come out ahead. It came up with a score of 3,273 to the Ryzen processors 2,631, which is roughly a 24.4% advantage in Intel’s favor clearly showing win-win results.
Not So Easy for Intel to Win
But anywhere before the celebration for the Intel fans and putting out champagnes, one should consider reading ahead. It is believed that AMD may lose this battle but could still end winning the War. The multi-threaded and overall scores were not so pleasing for Intel. Here the Intel Core i7-1165G7 was dominated by Ryzen 7 4800U with its eight cores and 16 threads to the four cores and eight threads of the Intel.
When one looks at the overall scores for the two competitors, here is what is experienced. A total of 17,552 points for the Ryzen 7 4800U and 13,372 points for the Core i7-1165G7. This point difference amounts to a 31.3% victory for AMD.
One additional clinging point to this result that may not make Intel fans happy. It is that the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U has 55 total tests in the PassMark system and its score is an average among all of those tests. On other hand this was the first test for the new Core i7-1165G7 CPU. So there is a still room for corrections in the score, it can either go in the favor of Intel or in favor of AMD.
What can be Expected Next Month from Intel?
Unfortunately for Intel, for most users, single-threaded performance is not going to be a massive selling point. But at this point, any win is likely a good win for Intel. Tiger Lake does have other advantages too. It includes improved security and the aforementioned graphics power for gamers who want to stick to a thin and light option. So regardless of AMD’s benchmark edge we still can’t wait to hear more about Tiger Lake next month.
