With the new more budget-oriented Core i5-1135G7 being out in the market now, we wanted to do some comparisons between it and other popular and powerful CPUs from both Intel and AMD to see where exactly does it stand in the food chain. That is why for today we have decided to put it up against one tried and tested processor that is for sure going to give this new hotshot a run for its money.
Today we are comparing the Intel Core i5-1135G7 against the Intel Core i7-10510U.
Here is our Top Laptop CPU Ranking, where you can see that the Core i5-1135G7 takes the #38 spot and the Core i7-10510U takes the #60 spot.

|Memory support||DDR4-3200MHz, LPDDR4x-4266MHz||DDR4-2666MHz, LPDDR3-2133MHz|
|Integrated graphics||Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 (80EU)||Intel UHD Graphics|
Starting off with the CPU tests, in the first benchmark with Cinebench 15, which uses 3D Rendering, the Core i5-1135G7 was better by 15%. As for the Photoshop benchmark, there the Core i5 was again faster, this time by a whole second.
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 tests, the Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 80 Execution Units wiped the floor with its opponent in the face of the Intel UHD Graphics. The Tiger Lake GPU was 128%, 77%, and 130% faster across 3DMark Fire Strike, Unigine Heaven 4.0, and Unigine Superposition respectively.
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)
