A processor from Intel’s Tiger Lake family has been spotted achieving a credible score on 3DMark’s Time Spy test. The Tiger Lake-U chip racked up scores of 1,300 in the GPU test and 4,400 in the CPU test. A low-power APU from AMD's older Picasso lineup, the Ryzen 7 3780U, managed 1,000 and 3,100 points, respectively.

Tum Apisak has found another example of a Tiger Lake-U processor from Intel being put through its paces in a popular synthetic benchmark. This time, the low TDP mobile chip was taking on the Time Spy benchmark from 3DMark, where it amassed 1,300 (GPU) and 4,400 (CPU) points, respectively.

In a comparison with the AMD Ryzen 7 3780U APU that was released in October 2019, the processor from Intel was dominant. The quad-core Ryzen 7 3780U (15 W TDP) scored 1,000 points in the GPU test and 3,100 points in the CPU test, demonstrating that Intel’s Tiger Lake-U sample at least has the edge in this particular benchmark over its Ryzen 3000 series rival. The Ryzen 7 3780U measured in this test was in a Microsoft Surface device.

However, it’s a bit early for Intel to start waving flags in regard to the supposed triumph of its low-power Tiger Lake processor, as AMD has its Ryzen 4000 series of APUs to offer even more of a challenge to Team Blue. The octa-core Renoir processor Ryzen 7 4800U also has a low TDP of 15 W, and AMD has already claimed it will perform well in benchmarks like Time Spy. An example of a Ryzen 7 4800H amassing a CPU score of 8,350 has been mentioned, although that APU has a TDP of up to 45 W.
