The Ultimate Core i7-1065G7 and Ryzen 7 3700U/2700U CineBench comparison: How does Intel Ice Lake hold up against 15 other AMD Ryzen laptops?

The Ultimate Core i7-1065G7 and Ryzen 7 3700U/2700U CineBench comparison: How does Intel Ice Lake hold up against 15 other AMD Ryzen laptops?

It takes more than just one or two laptops or one or two scores to call a verdict like so many articles tend to do. We compare the Ice Lake-powered Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 with at least a dozen other AMD laptops in a CineBench stress test to see which laptop comes out fastest. Interestingly, results are mixed and even closer than what you might expect.
