CPU benchmark

In Cinebench 15, which puts the CPUs through a 3D Rendering test, the Core i5-1135G7 was 17% better than its opponent. As for the Photoshop test, here the Tiger-Lake processor was the winner as well, being a whole second faster than its competition.

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 GPU results, the newer Iris Xe Graphics G7 scored higher across all of our benchmarks. To go into detail, it was 21% better in 3DMark Fire Strike, 8% in Unigine Heaven 4.0, and 45% in Unigine Superposition. In the gaming tests, there were some close scenarios, but for the most part, the Iris Xe Graphics G7 was the better performer.

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)
