[Comparison] Intel Core i7-11600H vs Intel Core i7-11370H – there is a case to be made about the Core i7-11370H

Today we have two Core i7 CPUs going head to head. One of them is the brand new Core i7-11600H, which is the less fortunate twin of the Core i7-11800H, missing two cores and four threads.

It will be going against the Core i7-11370H, which shouldn’t be overlooked, as it comes with a pretty formidable base clock speed of 3.30GHz that can boost up to 4.80GHz, making it a powerful opponent. In terms of other specs, it has a 4-core / 8-thread setup, a lower TDP of 35W, along with 6MB less cache when compared to the i7-11600H.

CPU benchmarks

Regardless of the higher speeds, the more cores and cache definitely play into the Core i7-11600H’s hands (or threads, in this case). The CPU outperformed its opponent heavily, scoring 52% higher in 3D Rendering with Cinebench R20 and nearly a second quicker in Photoshop.

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)


The Core i7-11600H definitely showed what it’s made of today, with its higher power output and better specs making it perform better in both 3D and 2D Rendering. However, that doesn’t necessarily make it the better option, as while the 3D Rendering difference is so large that you cannot overlook it, a second isn’t a lot of time, so we don’t see why you can’t go for the Core i7-11370H if your main objective is Photo editing or graphic design. Keep in mind that the bigger core count and the higher cache will definitely result in a better gaming experience, though.
