Intel Core i7-8705G vs Intel Core i7-8550U – benchmarks and performance comparison

In our previous comparison, the 8th gen Intel Core i7-8750H outperforms its rival – the Intel Core i7-8705G when it comes to the results from our benchmark tests. And so, today we have chosen yet another 8th gen representative – Intel Core i7-8550U, as a new opponent for the latter.

Visit our Top Laptop CPU Ranking to check these two and many more CPUs.

Specs overview

For starters, Intel Core i7-8705G is based on the Kaby Lake G architecture (8th gen) with a total of 4 cores and 8 threads. Built upon a 14 nm process, it runs at 3.10 GHz base frequency and a maximum speed of 4.10 GHz. Other significant specs include 8MB last level cache, a dual-channel memory controller supporting DDR3L-1600 or DDR4-2400 and a TDP of 65 W. The integrated GPU here is AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL (Vega 870, 4GB HBM2) clocked at 931- 1011 MHz.

Moving on to Intel Core i7-8550U, it is part of the 8th Generation Kaby Lake Refresh CPUs. Manufactured through a 14nm process, the chip adopts the 4/8 core/thread count and is clocked at 1.80 GHz, while its Turbo Boost frequency is 4.00 GHz. The specs sheet is complemented by 8MB last level cache, as well as a dual-channel memory controller that supports DDR4-2400 and LPDDR3-2133, as well as a relatively low TDP of 15W. The chip also incorporates the integrated graphics Intel UHD Graphics 620 clocked at 300-1050 MHz.

Benchmarks

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)

For the purposes of this juxtaposition, we have decided to compare the performance of the two chips found in Dell XPS 15 9575 and Dell Inspiron 5770 respectively. Looking at the charts above, Intel Core i7-8705G shows around 24% better results when it comes to 3D rendering (tested with Cinebench 15). On top of that, it is also 7% faster in the Adobe Photoshop test compared to Intel Core i7-8550U.

Conclusion

Judging by the fact that Intel Core i7-8705G shows better results in 2/2 benchmarks, it would be only fair to crown it as the winner in today’s comparison.
