Tiger Lake and Xe Grahics: The King’s Return

AMD has just released the Ryzen 4000 chip on a 7nm process, and Intel has responded with a Tiger Lake chip, which is based on an “enhanced 10nm process”.

So this is the right time to evaluate this chip “Tiger” from Intel through the tests with the battle chicken AMD Ryzen 4000.

In terms of force, the chip line Tiger Lake includes 9 microprocessor models, from PC series to Laptop, and portable devices.

This chip supports Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi 6 and integrated graphics Xe Graphics latest, although still using the 10nm process as its 10th generation predecessor (Ice Lake), but this time they use the advanced architecture “SuperFin Design”.

These chips will definitely be available on flagship Ultrabook such as: Samsung’s Galaxy Book Flex 5G, Acer’s Swift 5, Dell’s XPS 13 2-in-1, Lenovo Yoga 9i or Asus’ Zenbook S.

This review uses a Prototye Laptop, OEM-like model that Intel lent reviewers first (manufactured by MSI but bearing the Intel logo).

The specifications of this machine are as follows: 28W i7-1185G7 chip, with 4 cores 8 threads, clocked at 3.0Ghz, Turbo Boost to 4.8Ghz single core (Turbo boost multi-core 4.3Ghz), and integrated graphics Xe Graphics, built-in machine with 32GB of RAM.

A chip i7-1185G7 This beat its predecessor i7-1065G7 Ice Lake 25W (Note that this 11th generation i7 chip has a capacity of 28W, while with the Ice Lake series there is only one 28W chip, it is the i7-1068G7, and only on the Macbook Pro).

In addition, this 11th generation i7 chip also beat AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800U 8 core with near results.

#first. Gaming performance of i7-1068G

Intel’s biggest gamble is the integrated graphics Xe Graphics which Intel claims is twice as efficient as the previous generation.

Talking with hints of Certified: Vehicle Graphics On this machine can plow OverWatch at 1080p Ultra quality, with an average of 89FPS (let’s say 60FPS if you go with an i5 chip, for convenience compared to AMD Ryzen), Epic games with average frames at numbers 59FPS.

While machines running AMD Ryzen 4800U chips averaged 46FPS Ultra (Overwatch), 1-0 for Intel.

And compared to its 10th generation predecessor, it can’t be said, even with low settings, it can’t pass 65FPS!

That way Nvidia must be scared graphics card How integrated, performance like this, who would spend money to buy a mid-range, low-range card like the company’s MX350 now?

On the video graphics aspect of Editing, it goes without saying much: this i7-1185G7 outputs a 5: 33s 4K video in 8 minutes.

While the 10th generation (i7-1065G7) like Surface Laptop 3 or DELL XPS 13 2-in-1 takes 15 minutes to export.

In this test we did not benchmark the AMD 4800U chip because of the Premiere Pro compatibility bug, but you can also guess the results, while AMD doesn’t support Intel’s Quick Sync.

#2. Test of Benchmark numbers

3DMark Time Spy for i7-1185G7 up to 1,805 points (modern graphics performance test), this score clearly beat the previous i7-1065G7 (you can see the specific score on, and AMD Ryzen 7 4800U underperformed with 1,450 points.

This is just the introduction of the numbers, remember the Ryzen 7 4800U has double the multiplier, the number of threads compared to the Intel house.

PCMark 10 (the actual working performance test): AMD Ryzen 7 4800U chip on par with this i7-1185G7, the corresponding score of 5,404 / 5,462 (while the i7 1065G7 chip is 4,644 according to Notebookcheck)

Cinebench R20 (the test of the ability to process the whole system graphics): Intel got 595 points in the single-core benchmark, and AMD at 474 points.

In the multi-core test, AMD outperformed Intel thanks to its superior thread multiplier than Intel (see more above Notebookcheck).

# 3. summary

In conclusion, Intel’s Tiger Lake line completely defeated its predecessor Ice Lake in multitasking and daily tasks, proving the remarkable progress of the Intel family.

Not to mention Intel also clearly expressed its ambition of Artificial Intelligence when equipped with AI Engine DL Boost: DP4a to combine with integrated graphics card, to speed up Neral Network Inferencing (which is not 28W laptop chips every dream to have).

Although in the framework of this article, Intel beat AMD in single-core performance, but failed completely in multi-core processing. And AMD still retains the throne in the village of multithreading multi-core processing such as code compilation, Hash calculation, encryption, …

But this new Intel graphics card is integrated with Xe Graphics so it saves it all, with the ability to balance the latest AAA games, great for an integrated graphics card!

Hopefully, when the Tiger Lake chip officially goes into production, we will see its performance even better optimized, especially with better battery life, because after all these chips towards mobile devices like Laptop, or Ultrabook .. that.

Okay, thank you for watching the post. Good luck !
