CPU benchmarks

In Cinebench 20, which tests the processor’s 3D Rendering capabilities, the Core i7-11800H scored 22% higher, which is really impressive, since 3D Rendering is totally in AMD’s lane. The second test, which consists of 2D Rendering with Adobe Photoshop, the Core i7 was faster again, finishing the benchmark with a lead of around 0.8 seconds.

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

Conclusion

We are starting to think that AMD’s time under the spotlight is coming to an end. Intel has shown that they can compete, and even win, so now the ball is in the court of Team Red. It is up to them to improve, but this is the fun part for us. We get to see these two titans always one-upping each other, advancing their technologies further than they’ve ever thought they could. While now AMD might be on the backfoot, their CPUs are still viable alternatives and you should go with what you prefer, both performance, and more importantly, price-wise.

Severin Kolakov, how much do you get from Intel for this ad?
You are comparing last year Ryzen with this year’s Intel, seriously? Why didn’t you use Ryzen 5800H for comparison?
