Intel Core i5-L16G7

Intel i5-L16G7

The Core i5-L16G7 is an SoC with 5 processor cores based on the Lakefield architecture. It uses one fast Sunny Cove core (known from Ice-Lake CPUs but without AVX512) with up to 3 GHz and 4 small Tremont cores (Atom / Celeron) with up to 2.8 GHz. Using all 5 cores, the CPU can reach up to 1.8 GHz, base clock speed is 1.4 GHz. The CPU does not support HyperThreading / SMT. The rest of the SoC is similar to the Ice Lake chips, like the Gen 11 graphics card with 64 EUs (similar to the Iris Plus G7 but only clocked at 500 MHz and using the UHD Graphics name).


The average L16G7 in our database is in the same league as the Pentium N6000 and also the Core i3-1110G4, as far as multi-thread benchmark scores are concerned. This kind of performance is only sufficient for basic day-to-day activities as of late 2023.

Your mileage may vary depending on how competent the cooling solution of your laptop is and how high the CPU power limits are.

With a specified TDP of 7 Watt (PL1, 9.5 Watt PL2), the CPU is well suited for thin and light laptops and Windows based tablets. / 2-in-1. Intel claims that the standby power was greatly reduced (91% better compared to the i7-8500Y with 2.5 mW). The SoC is manufactured in 10nm and uses the Intel Foveros 3D Packaging technology. Foveros is used to stack the in 22FFL manufactured I/O die, the compute die in 10nm and up to 8 GB LPDDR4X-4267.
