CPU benchmark

To start off with the CPU tests, in our 3D Rendering benchmark, the Intel Core i5-1135G7 had a 5% higher score than its older counterpart. As for the second benchmark, which is in Photoshop, here the Tiger Lake infused Core i5 was better and had a lead of one second.

Results are from the Cinebench 20 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)

Results are from our Photoshop benchmark test (the lower the score, the better)

GPU benchmark

Moving over to the Graphics test, here the Iris Xe Graphics dominated across all of our benchmarks. It was 115% better in 3DMark Fire Strike, 62% in Unigine Heaven 4.0, and 124% in Unigine Superposition. In the Gaming test, it also crushed its competitor across all games and quality settings.

Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Superposition benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Conclusion

To summarize the results from above, the Intel Core i5-1135G7 absolutely dominated throughout all of our tests. For the CPU benchmarks, it was slightly better in 3D Rendering and had a one-second lead in 2D Rendering. Continuing on with the GPU benchmarks, here the Iris Xe Graphics G7 was often two times better than its opponent. However, the difference in real life is a bit lower (albeit still big-enough) – about 50%.
