[Comparison] Intel Core i7-10870H vs Core i7-10750H – the 10870H performs 37% better in 3D and 0.7s faster in 2D Rendering

Intel has held second place in the CPU market in recent years and it is because they got lazy and complacent. The fact that AMD’s Ryzen CPUs have been so good came to Intel out of left field and they are still struggling to find a solution to their problems.

They are still looking for a way to reclaim their former glory and for today we are here to compare two fairly new processors from Team Blue that we still believe have something to show us. Today we are comparing the Intel Core i7-10870H against the Core i7-10750H.

CPU benchmarks

In the 3D Rendering benchmark with CInebench 15, the Intel Core i7-10870H was by far the better CPU, managing to get a 37% higher score. In Photoshop, results were similar, with the i7-10870H finishing the benchmark 0.7 seconds faster than its rival, making it the undisputed winner of this comparison.

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)


Overall, the Intel Core i7-10870H was the better processor, managing to perform 37% better in 3D Rendering with CInebench 15. Even more, it finished the Photoshop benchmark with a lead of 0.7 seconds. The higher base frequency didn’t help the i7-10750H secure the win, and the more cache on the i7-10870H may have had a small impact on the results.
