Intel Core i5-1030G7 vs Intel Core i5-1030G4

Intel Core i5-1030G7

► remove from comparison Intel i5-1030G7

The Intel Core i5-1030G7 is a power efficient quad-core SoC for laptops and Ultrabooks based on the Ice -Lake-Y generation that was announced in Mai 2019 (Computex). It integrates four Sunnycove processor cores (8 threads thanks to HyperThreading) clocked at 0.8 (base) - 3.8 (single core Turbo) GHz. All four cores can turbo up to 3.2 GHz using Turbo Boost. According to Intel the Sunnycove cores achieve 18% more IPCs (Instructions per Clock).

The biggest improvement for Ice-Lake is the integrated Gen 11 graphics card called Iris Plus Graphics. The Core i5-1030G7 integrates the biggest G7 variant with 64 CUs clocked at 300 - 1050 MHz. The Iris Plus G7 should be twice as fast as the predecessors and best the AMD Vega 10 GPU in current Ryzen APUs. However, in the Y-series the gaming performance will be again depending on the cooling solution and may degrade clearly over time (compared to the Core i7-1065G7 with 15 - 25 Watt e.g.).

Other improvements for Ice Lake are the AI hardware acceleration and the partial integration of Thunderbolt and WiFi 6 in the chip. The integrated DDR4 memory controller supports modules with up to 3200 MHz (and LPDDDR4 3733).

Performance

While we have not tested a single system built around the 1030G7 as of August 2023, it's safe to expect the chip to be about half as fast as the Core i5-1035G7, as far as multi-thread performance is concerned. Which is fairly poor as of mid 2023.

Your mileage may vary depending on how high the CPU power limits are and how competent the cooling solution of your system is.

Power consumption

This Core i5 has a default TDP (also known as the long-term power limit) of 9 W, a value that laptop manufacturers are allowed to increase just slightly (12 W being the upper limit) resulting in higher clock speeds and higher performance. The processor is built with Intel's 1st gen 10 nm process for OK, as of late 2022, energy efficiency.

Intel Core i5-1030G4

The Intel Core i5-1030G4 is a power efficient quad-core SoC for laptops and Ultrabooks based on the Ice -Lake-Y generation that was announced in Mai 2019 (Computex). It integrates four Sunnycove processor cores (8 threads thanks to HyperThreading) clocked at 0.7 (base) - 3.5 (single core Turbo) GHz. All four cores can turbo up to 3.2 GHz using Turbo Boost. According to Intel the Sunnycove cores achieve 18% more IPCs (Instructions per Clock).

The biggest improvement for Ice-Lake is the integrated Gen 11 graphics adapter called Iris Plus Graphics. The Core i7-1030G4 integrates the smaller G4 variant with 48 of the 64 CUs clocked at 300 - 1050 MHz. However, in the Y-series the gaming performance will be again depending on the cooling solution and may degrade clearly over time (compared to the Core i5-1035G4 with 15 - 25 Watt e.g.).

Performance

While we have not tested a single system powered by the 1030G4 as of August 2023, it's safe to expect the chip to be about half as fast as the Core i5-1035G7 (Ice Lake, 4 cores, 8 threads, up to 3.7 GHz), as far as multi-thread benchmark scores are concerned. The 1030G4's low TDP target is set to limit the CPU's real-world Boost clock speeds significantly, leading to underwhelming performance and high DPC latencies.

Power consumption

This Core i5 has a default TDP (also known as the long-term power limit) of 9 W, a value that laptop manufacturers are allowed to increase slightly (12 W being the upper limit) resulting in higher clock speeds and higher performance. The CPU is built with Intel's second-gen 10 nm process for OK, as of mid-2022, energy efficiency.
