Tiger Lake has brought numerous improvements and new features to the market that Intel consumers will for sure appreciate. The Core i5-1135G7, being the less expensive member of the Tiger Lake family, will be the main processor choice for new mid-level Intel-based devices.
That is why we have decided to do some comparison between the Core i5-1135G7 and other popular CPUs, to see where exactly does it stand in terms of CPU and GPU performance.
Today we will be comparing the Intel Core i5-1135G7 against the Intel Core i5-1035G4.
Here is our Top Laptop CPU Ranking, where you can see the top performing laptop processors.

|Lithography||10 nm||10 nm|
|Cores / Threads||4/8||4/8|
|Base / Max frequency||2.40 – 4.00 GHz||1.10 – 3.70 GHz|
|TDP / up / down||15W / 25W / 10W||15 W|
|Memory support||DDR4-3200MHz, LPDDR4x-4266MHz||DDR4-3200MHz, LPDDR4-3733MHz|
|Integrated graphics||Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 (80EU)||Intel Iris Plus Graphics G4|
In Cinebench 15, which puts the CPUs through a 3D Rendering test, the Core i5-1135G7 was 17% better than its opponent. As for the Photoshop test, here the Tiger-Lake processor was the winner as well, being a whole second faster than its competition.
Results are from the Cinebench 15 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Fritz chess benchmark (the higher the score, the better)
Moving over to the GPU results, the newer Iris Xe Graphics G7 scored higher across all of our benchmarks. To go into detail, it was 21% better in 3DMark Fire Strike, 8% in Unigine Heaven 4.0, and 45% in Unigine Superposition. In the gaming tests, there were some close scenarios, but for the most part, the Iris Xe Graphics G7 was the better performer.
Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 3.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
