[Comparison] Intel Core i7-11370H vs AMD Ryzen 7 4700U – The Intel CPU lost in 3D, but won in 2D Rendering

With the beginning of 2021, both NVIDIA and Intel are releasing new CPUs that promise new improvements, better performance, and lower power consumption. Intel released several new SKUs of their Tiger Lake family.

Today we’re here to talk about one of them, the Intel Core i7-11370H, which has a 4-core, 8-thread design and a boost clock of 4.80GHz.

To measure its performance against other high-performing processors, we do detailed comparisons, in which we test the chips in a variety of benchmarks, which test their ability to handle different tasks.

CPU benchmarks

Starting off with the 3D Rendering test, the Ryzen 7 4700U scored 7% higher, which is less than we would have imagined, considering the extra number of cores and threads. In Photoshop the results were the other way around. The Intel Core i7-11370H managed to finish the task faster and had a lead of 0.8 seconds, which only bodes well for the Intel chip.

Results are from the Cinebench R23 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)

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


In the Cinebench 15 3D Rendering benchmark, the Ryzen 7 4700U performed better, scoring 7% higher, which was a shame really, considering that it has double the cores and threads of the Intel CPU. Where things took a turn though was in the Photoshop benchmark. There the Intel Core i7-11370H was the better processor, as it was able to finish the test 0.8 seconds faster, thus ending this comparison in a draw. Of course, you have to take into consideration the power consumption of both chips, and when you do that you can see clearly that the AMD performs better at a way lower TDP of 15W.
