Intel Core i7-1180G7 debuts on Geekbench with a 4.59 GHz boost clock and impressive performance for a 15 W UP4 Tiger Lake processor
It has only been a few days since Lenovo announced that the ThinkPad X1 Nano would feature the Core i7-1180G7, but plenty remains unknown about the Tiger Lake-U series processor. Thankfully, someone has benchmarked the processor on Geekbench, offering a few insights into its performance and specifications.
According to Geekbench, the Core i7-1180G7 has a 2.19 GHz base clock that rises to a maximum of 4.59 GHz. Unsurprisingly, the processor offers four cores and eight threads, along with 12 MB of L3 cache. The Core i7-1180G7 should have a 15 W TDP too and an Iris Xe Graphics GPU with 96 Execution Units (EUs). It is also one of Intel's UP4 Tiger Lake chipsets, rather than the more powerful UP3 series, which can reach 28 W.
The Core i7-1180G7 scored an impressive 1,542 in Geekbench 5.3.1 single-core, putting it in line with other Tiger Lake chipsets like the Core i7-1165G7 and Core i7-1185G7. Similarly, its multi-core score of 5,280 is only about 11% down on the Core i7-1185G7, despite its clock speed and TDP disadvantages.
The Core i7-1180G7 also averages about 6.5% higher in both benchmarks than the Core i7-1160G7, another UP4 Tiger Lake processor. The Core i7-1160G7 has a 210 MHz lower boost clock than the Core i7-1180G7, so it seems that the latter makes good use of its extra megahertz. The Core i7-1180G7 will be arriving in compact machines into 2021.
