There are new processors from both Intel and AMD. Intel is coming out with their H-series Tiger Lake chips, which should be even more powerful than the G-series, which had a TDP limit of 15W. These new Tiger Lake processors come with a limit of 35W, so they should be able to handle even more. On the other hand, we have the Ryzen 5000 H-series Zen 3 chips, which are crazy powerful. From the Intel side, we have the Core i7-11370H, which has four cores, eight threads, and a boost clock speed of 4.80 GHz. To combat it, AMD presents its Ryze 7 5800H, which has double the number of cores and threads, while having a lower boost clock speed of 4.40 GHz.
Here is our Top Laptop CPU Ranking, where you can check out the best performing processors.
Today we are comparing the Intel Core i7-11370H against the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H.
|Intel Core i7-11370H||AMD Ryzen 7 5800H|
|Architecture||Tiger Lake H35||Zen 3|
|Lithography||10 nm||7 nm|
|Base / Max frequency||3.30-4.80GHz||3.20-4.40GHz|
|Cores / Threads||4/8||8/16|
|Memory Type||DDR4-3200MHz, LPDDR4x-4266MHz||DDR4-3200MHz, LPDDR4x-4266MHz|
|Integrated GPU||Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 (96EU)||AMD Radeon RX Vega 6 (Ryzen 4000, 45W)|
The Core i7-11370H finds itself heavily outclassed in 3D Rendering, where the more cores and threads attributed to an 89% higher score for the Ryzen 7 5800H. In Photoshop, things were still in favor of the Ryzen CPU, but the difference wasn’t as outrageous as the first one. The AMD processor finished the benchmark with a 1.2-second lead.
Results are from the Cinebench 20 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Fritz chess benchmark (the higher the score, the better)
To summarize, the Core i7-11370H was way out of its league when it came to 3D Rendering, but didn’t suffer as hard in the Photoshop benchmark. We would recommend the AMD CPU, but as always, price is always the most important factor. If your work consists mainly of image editing and processing, then the Core i7 would still do a fantastic job, and would be a better deal, if you can find it at a lower price. The same goes for the Ryzen 7 5800H if you fancy 3D Rendering more.
