Intel Tiger Lake could outrun AMD Ryzen 4000 in single-core performance

An alleged PassMark score has been posted for Intel’s forthcoming Core i7-1165G7 chip going head-to-head with AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800U. Although not able to go toe-to-toe overall with the octa-core 7nm Ryzen 7, the quad-core 10nm++ Tiger Lake-based chip posts a very respectable single-threaded score that throws some shade on its competition.

Intel has been struggling to stay on top of AMD in recent times with its well-documented 10 nm delays and more lately with its 7 nm process now 12-months behind schedule as well. Despite this, it has made some advances with its revised Core architecture as seen in the single-core performance gains of its 10 nm+ Sunny Cove cores. Its next-generation 10 nm++ Willow Cove cores also look to have continued with this trend if an alleged PassMark score is to be believed. 

Appearing for the first time on PassMark is an Intel Core i7-1165G7, which would make it an 11th generation Tiger Lake part expected to be announced by Intel at a special event on September 2. It is a 10 nm++ 15 W quad-core chip with a base clock of 2.8 GHz and it is shown in a PassMark comparison with AMD’s 7 nm 15 W octa-core Ryzen 7 4800U. In the comparison Intel’s Willow Cove architecture allegedly produces a single-core score of 3,273 versus the AMD Renoir architecture single-core of 2,631 -- equivalent to 24.4 percent better performance.

As you would expect, however, the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U crushes the Intel Core i7-1165G7 with an overall score of 17,552 versus 13,372. What it does highlight, however, is that Intel’s woes fabrication woes have really left the door wide open for AMD to march through. Perhaps it is no surprise, then, that following Intel’s revelation that it had pushed back its 7 nm chips to 2022 that it dumped its head of hardware and engineering. Poached by Intel from Qualcomm to fix its 10 nm process woes, Dr Venkata (Murthy) Renduchinatala struggled to help Intel right the ship and paid the price.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
