Intel really managed to deliver with their latest Core i7-1165G7. It’s strong both on the CPU end as well as when it comes to graphics performance. Today we will compare it to the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H to see who will come up on top. The Core i7 is built on the newest Tiger Lake architecture which uses the 10 nm SuperFin process. The Ryzen 5, on the other hand, is built on the very popular Zen2 architecture and features the 7 nm MOSFET process. The Intel offering has 4 cores and 8 threads, while on the AMD side we have 6 cores and 12 threads.

For our first test results, the 3D rendering test in Cinebench 15, the Ryzen 5 4600H stomped its rival for today with a 44% performance difference. Where the Intel CPU shined, though was in our second test, in which it was 1.2 seconds (or 17%) faster. This shows that the AMD processor is better for 3D rendering and modelling, while the Intel one is better for 2D work and image processing.
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)
For us, this comparison ends in a draw. Both CPUs are clearly better than the other one, depending on the tasks that you make them do. If your job or hobby involves a lot of 3D work, the Ryzen CPU is clearly the better choice for you. On the other hand, if you spend most of your time in Photoshop, the Core i7 will suit you better.
