In today’s comparison, we have the recently released Intel Core i5-1135G7 versus the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U. The Intel Core i5-1135G7 is part of the new Tiger Lake line of processors by Intel while the Ryzen 5 4500U is part of AMD’s Zen 2 family and it also has been released recently.
These CPUs are made for mobile platforms and focus on less power usage, better battery life, and more performance with less space. In this comparison, we will try to see which CPU is better suited for a mobile platform – Intel Core i5-1135G7 or the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U.
This comparison is preliminary and it will be updated when we have more tests available.
There are not many notable differences between the two CPUs except in their number of cores and threads. The Intel has 4 cores with 8 threads while the Ryzen has 6 cores and 6 threads. In turn, this means that the Intel should have a better performance in tasks that require multiple cores. For example, video editing, 3D rendering, and photo editing.
|Intel Core i5-1135G7||AMD Ryzen 5 4500U|
|Cores / Threads||4 / 8||6 / 6|
|Base / Max frequency||2.40 – 4.20 GHz||2.30 – 4.00 GHz|
|Cache||8 MB Cache||8 MB Cache|
|TDP / up / down||15W / 25W / 10W||15W / 25W / 10W|
In our benchmark, we can see that even the newest Intel Core i5-1135G7 is not a match for the Ryzen 5 4500U. In the 3D rendering benchmark, the Core i5-1135G7 gets outperformed by almost 15%.
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)
Taking everything into account, even the newest mobile line of processors by Intel is not a match for AMD. In our preliminary benchmark, the AMD still does better than the Intel with a bit less than 15%. Overall, when it comes to mid-range CPU value and power, AMD is the clear winner. However, as soon as we get our hands on a laptop with the Core i5-1135G7, we will put it through more tests, including 3DMark Fire Strike and some games.
