AMD has been ruling the mobile processor world lately thanks to Ryzen 4000. However, Tiger Lake seems to be an altogether different beast. Both Tum Apisak and _rogame have been keeping an eye on the Intel Core i7-1165G7 on Time Spy, and the results are quite interesting. The Intel Core i7-1165G7, which has 4 cores and 8 threads, was put against three Renoir rivals: AMD Ryzen 7 4700U (8 cores, 8 threads), Ryzen 7 4800U (8 cores, 16 threads), and the Ryzen 9 4900HS (8 cores, 16 threads). Unsurprisingly, the CPU scores in Time Spy for the latter two Ryzen 4000 APUs dominated the Tiger Lake part; however, the i7-1165G7 held up pretty well against the Ryzen 7 4700U: 5,302 points (AMD) vs. 5,304 points (Intel). The Intel SoC used a 28 W TDP and was paired with fast LPDDR4x 4266 MHz RAM while the AMD APU was tested with a default TDP of 25 W. However, yet again the Xe integrated graphics stole the show for the Tiger Lake Intel Core i7-1165G7. Not only did the Xe iGPU dominated the Vega 7 in the Ryzen 7 4700U by 35.6% in the Time Spy Graphics Score, but it also managed to outscore the Vega 8 iGPUs in the Ryzen 7 4800U and Ryzen 9 4900HS by 18.0% and 14.5%, respectively. With results like these, Tiger Lake could appeal to gamers who are on a limited budget and don’t want to purchase a laptop with a discrete GPU but still want a decent graphics performance.
