11th Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7 Review

The i7 1165G7 Intel is a part of its 11th Generation Tiger lake lineup and can be found in thin light laptops. Based on Intel’s 10+ nanometers architecture it’s powered by 4 willow cove cores with 8 threads with a base clock of 2.8 GHz and 4.7GHz. One of the headline features of the 11th Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7 is the Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs. The other features include AI hardware acceleration, and Thunderbolt 4, and WiFi 6.


Performance | 11th Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7 (Good or Bad)

11th Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7 can easily handle day-to-day tasks such as Browsing, Streaming, and using office productivity software and is a better option for light users compared to its ryzen counterparts. Now, if we are talking about more demanding tasks such as video editing, photo editing, and 3D applications is a good option for mid-range laptops however its ryzen counterparts with more cores will perform better. In terms of performance, i7 1165G7 does see significant improvements in both single and multi-core performance. However, in terms of multi-core performance, it still can’t compete with its ryzen 5000/4000 series counterparts and is comparable to 10th Gen Intel Core i5 10300H,10th Gen Intel Core i7-10810U, Ryzen 5 4500U, and i7 11370H.

Integrated GPU

IGPU: Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs 

11 Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7 is powered by Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs. Based on Intel’s 12th Gen Xe architecture Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs features 96 Execution Units, 768 Shader Units, 48 TMUs, and 24 ROPs.  The performance of the Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs Graphics depends on a number of factors such as the configured TDP, Clock Speed, Cooling Solution, and RAM configuration. The integrated GPU greatly benefits from fast dual-channel memory.



How is 11th Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7 for 3D Animation and Rendering

The 11th Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7 is an excellent processor for 3D animation and rendering. When it comes to its single-core performance it performs better than its AMD counterparts such as the AMD Ryzen 7 5800U and even the AMD Ryzen 7 5700U and is slightly slower compared to AMD Ryzen 5 4500U in multithreaded benchmarks. So what does this mean for i7 1165G7? Well, it simply means that while you are in your 3D viewport your experience will be very smooth, and responsive and tasks such as rendering will be slower compared to its competitors.


Blender is an open-source digital content creation software for 3D-Modeling, Animation, Rendering, Video Editing & Compositing Solutions on the market. Blender has its own benchmarks and is used to measure the rendering capabilities of a CPU or GPU. The following bars indicate the time is taken to render a scene ( Less is better)

  • Blender

Cinebench Benchmark

Based on cinema 4d the Cinebench measures CPU performance in animation, 3d-modeling, simulation, and rendering. Single-core performance measures the responsiveness of the software under active workloads while the multi-core score measures the CPU’s ability to handle tasks such as rendering, encoding, and other workloads that benefit from better multi-threaded performance.

  • Cinebench R20 (Single-Core)
  • Cinebench R20 (Multi-Core)
  • Cinebench R15 Single Core
  • Cinebench R15 Multi Core
  • Cinebench R23 (Single-Core)
  • Cinebench R23 (Multi-Core)

How is 11th Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7 for Video Editing

The 11th Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7 has beaten its 10th Intel Counterparts with decent margins but looses to its Ryzen 4000/5000 series counterparts.

  • HWBOT x265 v2.2 4K
The HWBOT x265 v2.2 4K benchmark renders a video with a 4K resolution using x265/HEVC encoder and can be used to measure how fast a CPU will encode a video.

How is 11th Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7 for Web Browsing

  • WebXPRT 3 Score
WebXPRT 3 is a benchmark for browsers and compares the performance of almost every web-enabled device. You can use this benchmark to measure how well your device will perform day-to-day tasks such as Photo Enhancement, Organize Album Using AI, Stock Option Pricing, Encrypt Notes, and OCR Scan, Sales Graphs, and Online Homework.

Gaming Benchmarks

How is 11 Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7  for gaming

The real performance of the Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs is similar to that of the Mx350 in terms of gaming. This means you should be able to play titles such as GTA 5 at 60 FPS at (1366×768) and Fortnite at 50+ FPS at (1280×720).
