Description of the processor

The Intel Core i5-1038NG7 is a mobile processor from Intel that is based on the "Ice Lake U" architecture. It has 4 CPU cores and can process up to 8 threads at the same time thanks to the support of Intels Hyper-Threading technology. The base clock frequency of the processor is 2.0 GHz; in Turbo mode, the processor can clock up to 3.8 GHz. Turbo mode uses the parameters energy and waste heat to determine the maximum clock frequency.

The internal graphics (iGPU) is the Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 with 64 execution units and 512 texture shaders. With a theoretical computing power of almost 1.1 TFLOPS (FP32), the iGPU can run older computer games in medium resolutions. Video playback also benefits from the internal graphics. Modern graphics cards support video codes for playing videos in order to greatly reduce the processing load on the processor. This has a positive effect on the processors waste heat and energy consumption.

The Intel Core i5-1038NG7 can address up to 64 GB of RAM. The maximum possible are DDR4-3200 (51.2 GB/s) or LPDDR4-3733 (59.6 GB/s). The processor supports dual-channel mode, i.e. at least two memory modules should always be used in order to use the full memory bandwidth.

The Intel Core i5-1038NG7 with PCIe 3.0 can connect external devices with a maximum of 16 PCIe lines. This can be used, for example, for an external graphics card or for a sufficient number of fast USB or Thunderbolt ports.

The TDP of the Intel Core i5-1038NG7 is 28 watts. Depending on the manufacturer, the TDP can vary slightly and for thin notebooks the TDP is usually slightly lower to keep waste heat under control. 28 watts already have to be actively cooled with a fan.
