Laptop CPU Review: 10th Generation Intel Core i7-1065G7
The i7-1065G7 by Intel is a part of its 10th Generation Ice lake lineup and can be found in upper mid-range and high-end laptops. It is powered by 4 sunny cove cores with 4 threads with a base clock of 1.3 GHz and 3.9 GHz. The i7-1065G7 is based on the 10 nanometers architecture this allows the i7-1065G7 to draw less power and yield higher IPC (instructions per cycle) compared to its 8th generation counterparts (i7 8550U and i3 8565U). The higher IPC allows the ice lake CPUs to yield 18 percent more performance at the same clock speeds. The TDP of this Chip is specified by intel to be at 15 Watts but can vary anywhere from 13 to 25 watts. It also has support for new faster system memory of up to 3200 MHz DDR4 memory and 3733 MHz of LPDDDR4 memory though this feature has practically no impact on its performance. Other features include Deep Learning Boost technology by intel for faster AI-based computing and the integration of WiFi 6 and Thunderbolt.
The Intel Core i7-1065G7 when it comes to real-world performance is a lot better than its 8th generation counterparts. Not only the i7-1065G7 can easily handle your day-to-day tasks such as Browsing, Streaming, and using office productivity software but can also tackle more CPU-intensive tasks such as video editing, photo editing, and CAD applications.
i7-1065G7 vs i7-10510U
Even with its higher clock speeds, the i7-10510U is slightly slower when compared with its 10 Nm counterpart the i7-1065G7 thanks to its 10 Nm processor. According to benchmarks, the i7-1065G7 CPU should give you about 4-6 percent better performance overall.
IGPU: Intel UHD Graphics G7
The i7-1065G7 also houses a brand new GPU which is significantly better than the previous-gen UHD 620 Graphics. The new Intel UHD Graphics G7 has 64 processing core versus the 24 cores found on the Intel UHD 620 Graphics. You can expect up to 60 percent more performance from the UHD Graphics G7 when compared with the UHD Graphics 620.
Geekbench (single-core) 5:
The GeekBench Single core score can be used to estimate the real-world performance of the day to day applications such as Ms word, Google chrome and several games.
Cinebench R20 Single-core Score:
This Score measures as the name suggests performance for tasks that only utilize single-core performance such that being responsiveness of the software under active workloads.
Cinebench R15 Single-core Score:
This Score can be used as a metric for active use which is the responsiveness of the application.
Geekbench (Multi-core) 5:
The GeekBench Single-core score can be used to estimate the real-world performance of a CPU under professional workloads such as data compression, 2d/3d rendering, machine learning, and physics simulation(CAD applications).
Cinebench R20 Multi-core Score:
The multicore score of cinibench R20 measures the CPU’s ability to handle tasks such as rendering, encoding, and other workloads that benefit from better multi-threaded performance.
Cinebench R15 Multi-core Score:
Can be used as a metric for multi-threaded workloads such as rendering and encoding.
Blender is one of the most popular software for 3D modeling, animation, simulation, rendering, motion tracking, video editing, and 2D animation. Fortunately, blender has its own benchmark. Less is better*
