Intel launches the Core i5-11320H and Core i7-11390H; more of the same for the Tiger Lake H35 series
Last month, Intel unveiled more Tiger Lake SKUs, including the Core i7-1195G7, a 28 W processor that can boost to 5 GHz. The company has since added two more Tiger Lake processors, the Core i5-11320H and the Core i7-11390H, both UP3 parts with 35 W TDPs. While the former debuted on Geekbench in May, it has taken until now for the Core i7-11390H to appear. You can find an overview of the Core i5-11320H and Core i7-11390H below.

Intel has not released any performance figures for either of its new 35 W Tiger Lake processors. However, Geekbench has offered some insights into the Core i7-11390H. On the face of it, the Core i7-11390H offers nominally better single-core performance than the Core i7-11375H, which also has a 5.0 GHz boost clock speed. The difference is only 2% though, so this is within a margin of error. Similarly, the Core i7-11390H lost out by under 1% in Geekbench's multi-core benchmark.
Additionally, it seems that the Core i7-11390H is also as fast as the Core i7-1195G7. The Core i7-11390H does outscore the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS in single-core tasks, mind you. According to our database, the gap between the pair stands at almost 20%, although the Ryzen 9 5900HS holds a 30% advantage in the same multi-core benchmark. We should stress that one should not judge a processor on Geekbench alone, but the Core i7-11375H appears to offer almost all the performance that the Core i7-11390H does on first showing.
