Lenovo Yoga 7i Core i5-1135G7 CPU is on par with the Core i7-1165G7, but its Iris Xe graphics is way behind

We're getting mixed results from the initial batch of laptops sporting Intel's newest 11th gen Tiger Lake processors. Both CPU and GPU performance are ranging from disappointing to impressive depending on the laptop in question.

We've tested about six laptops with Intel's brand new Core i7-1165G7 thus far but only one with the lesser Core i5-1135G7. Interestingly enough, our single Core i5-1135G7 retail sample has outperformed the average processor performance of all six of our first Core i7-1165G7 laptops.

As shown by our CPU comparison graphs below, our Lenovo Yoga 7i 14 with the Core i5-1135G7 scores 8 to 14 percent higher than the average Core i7-1165G7 in our database in CineBench Multi-Threaded benchmarks. This doesn't appear to be a fluke either as the Lenovo system is also faster in HWBOT, Blender, and 7-Zip as well. The discrepancy can be partly attributed to the extra-slow Core i7-1165G7 in the Asus ZenBook Flip S UX371 which brings down the average Core i7-1165G7 in our database by quite the margin.

Even when looking beyond the ZenBook Flip S UX371, Lenovo's implementation of the Core i5-1135G7 is notable because it is able to maintain high clock rates relative to any Core i7-1165G7 laptop thus far. The ZenBook 14 UX425E with the Core i7-1165G7, for example, would stabilize at 2.4 GHz when running Prime95 versus 3.0 GHz on the Core i5-powered Yoga 7i 14.

The story is flipped when looking at graphics. Although the Core i5-1135G7 comes with the same integrated Iris Xe GPU and 96 EUs as on the Core i7-1165G7, graphics performance on the Core i5 can be anywhere from 35 to 50 percent slower in both games and 3DMark benchmarks. We attempted to update our graphics driver on the Lenovo machine which stood at 27.20.100.8439 at the time of review, but the Intel page recommended that we update the driver through Lenovo instead. According to Lenovo Vantage, however, the graphics driver was already up to date and so we stuck with the manufacturer recommendation since this is what the majority of owners will be doing.

Now, there's a chance that other laptops with the same Core i5-1135G7 CPU will have faster graphics performance than what we're seeing here on the Yoga 7i 14. After all, this Lenovo is our first and only retail sample of the Core i5-1135G7 at the time of writing. A much larger sample size of both Core i5-1135G7 and Core i7-1165G7 laptops will be needed before we can draw any firm conclusions about either.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
