Comparison of the two processors

The Intel Core i7-1165G7 mobile processor from the 3rd quarter of 2020 is based on Tiger Lake UP3 technology. It has 4 cores and a maximum clock rate of up to 4.7 GHz. The CPU based on 10nm technology supports up to 64 GB DDR4-3200 or LPDDR4X-4266 RAM.

With the help of the PCIe 4.0 standard, the latest hardware components can also be used. In addition, 5.00 MB L2 cache and 12.00 MB L3 cache are used. ECC compatibility is not offered.
With a TDP (PL1) of 15 W, both processors are on the same level.

The integrated graphics of the 12 GPU generation is based on the Intel Iris Xe Graphic96 technology. The clock is 0.4-1.3 Ghz and up to 16 GB of shared memory is supported. The Intel graphics card supports up to three monitors and has 96 graphics units and 768 shader units. Thanks to DirectX 12 support, the integrated graphics card is a loyal companion for all everyday tasks. However, if the processor is used in a gaming notebook, a dedicated graphics solution is usually used anyway, which normally makes it superfluous.

The AMD Ryzen 7 4700U notebook processor has been on the market since Q1 2020. Although it does not have the same clock frequencies as its counterpart from Intel, it does have 8 processor cores. These clock from 2.00 - 4.10 GHz. Like the Intel Core i7-1165G7, DDR4-3200 are supported. However, up to a maximum of 32 GB. In most cases, however, this should be sufficient for mobile use. In a direct comparison, the L3 cache is below that of the Intel. In addition, the processor is only connected with PCIe 3.0. For this purpose, 12 PCIe lines are connected. The Intel only has 4 lines.
Thanks to the Renoir ZEN 2 architecture, this mobile CPU is suitable for all tasks that exist for a notebook.

A direct comparison shows where the strengths of the individual CPUs lie. While the Intel Core i7 outperforms the AMD Ryzen 7 in the single-core benchmark thanks to the high maximum clock, it looks different in the multi-core benchmarks. This shows the strength of AMD, which is also evident in the desktop CPUs.
