[Comparison] Intel Core i5-1135G7 vs AMD Ryzen 5 4500U – still not a match for AMD

In today’s comparison, we have the recently released Intel Core i5-1135G7 versus the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U. The Intel Core i5-1135G7 is part of the new Tiger Lake line of processors by Intel while the Ryzen 5 4500U is part of AMD’s Zen 2 family and it also has been released recently.

These CPUs are made for mobile platforms and focus on less power usage, better battery life, and more performance with less space. In this comparison, we will try to see which CPU is better suited for a mobile platform – Intel Core i5-1135G7 or the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U.

You can find more information about both CPUs here: Intel Core i5-1135G7 / AMD Ryzen 5 4500U

Specifications

There are not many notable differences between the two CPUs except in their number of cores and threads. The Intel has 4 cores with 8 threads while the Ryzen has 6 cores and 6 threads. In turn, this means that the Intel should have a better performance in tasks that require multiple cores. For example, video editing, 3D rendering, and photo editing.

CPU benchmarks

In our benchmark, we can see that even the newest Intel Core i5-1135G7 is not a match for the Ryzen 5 4500U. In the 3D rendering benchmark, the Core i5-1135G7 gets outperformed by almost 21%. As for Photoshop, the Intel CPU was 0.2 seconds faster.

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 benchmarks

Moving on to the graphics scores, The RX Vega 6 was better in our first two tests, scoring 8% higher in 3DMark Fire Strike and 27% higher in Unigine Heaven 4.0. Where the Iris Xe Graphics was better was in Unigine Superposition, where it scored 13% higher.

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

Taking everything into account, even the newest mobile line of processors by Intel is not a match for AMD. In our benchmark, the AMD still does better than the Intel by nearly 21% in Cinebench 15 and 0.2 seconds in Photoshop. Overall, when it comes to mid-range CPU value and power, AMD is the clear winner. As for graphics performance, the Radeon RX Vega 6 performed better in two out of our three tests.
