[Comparison] AMD Ryzen 7 6800U vs Intel Core i7-1260P – A very good matchup

The CPU landscape is looking good, as both Intel and AMD have a wide selection of powerful and efficient chips that can handle all types of work. Today, we have two CPUs that strive to find the balance between performance and efficiency, which is key for thinner and lighter laptops that want to maximize power without overheating.

That’s why the Ryzen 7 6800U and the Core i7-1260P exist, and today they go to battle with each other, to see which is better both when the CPUs and the iGPUs are concerned.

CPU benchmarks

The Ryzen 7 shows considerable performance gains in 3D Rendering, scoring 9% higher in Cinebench 20. On the other hand, the Core i7 was a lot quicker in Photoshop, once again solidifying the 2D Rendering capabilities of Intel.

Results are from the Cinebench R23 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)

Results are from our Photoshop benchmark test (the lower the score, the better)

GPU benchmarks

Moving over to the graphics, the new Radeon 680M had a field day, scoring 33% higher in 3DMark Fire Strike and 32% higher in Unigine Superposition.

Results are from the 3DMark: Time Spy (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the 3DMark: Wild Life benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Superposition benchmark (higher the score, the better)

 Conclusion

Both CPUs definitely have their weak and strong sides, as the Ryzen 7 seems a lot more comfortable in 3D Rendering than it does in 2D Rendering. Once we move to graphics performance, the RDNA 2 iGPU inside the AMD CPU towers over its competition from Intel in benchmarks. In games, both iGPUs perform well, with AMD having the edge at higher settings.
