Intel Core i7-1185G7 Tiger Lake CPU Leaks With 4.8GHz Turbo Clock And 1.55GHz Xe GPU

When it comes to Intel’s Tiger Lake processors, quite a bit has leaked to the internet already ahead of its early September launch. We’ve seen benchmarks of various members of the family, with the most frequent appearances being made by the Core i7-1165G7. In one of its most recent outings, the Core i7-1165G7 was seen shredding a Ryzen 7 4800U Zen 2 APU in single-threaded benchmarks.

Today, however, we’re seeing benchmarks for the flagship Core i7-1185G7 processor, which has also been spotted in the past few months. In what we presume to be its production trim, the Core i7-1185G7 has an impressive base clock of 3GHz and a maximum turbo boost of 4.8GHz. To put that in perspective, the Core i7-1165G7 has base/turbo clocks of 2.8GHz and 4.7GHz respectively. It’s also worth noting that the current 10th generation Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7 has a base clock of just 1.3GHz against a turbo clock of 3.9GHz.

The Core i7-1185G7 is also flexing its muscles with a full 12MB of L3 cache (versus 8MB on the Core i7-1065G7), while its 12th generation integrated Xe GPU is boasting a full 96 execution units (versus 64). Perhaps even more telling at what kind of performance that the Core i7-1185G7 will be able to deliver — on both CPU and GPU fronts — is that the Xe GPU has a maximum clock of 1.55GHz instead of the 1.1GHz on the Core i7-1065G7.  

For something a bit lower on the totem pole in Tiger Lake land, there’s also the Core i5-1135G7, which was spotted within an Acer Aspire A515-56 laptop. This machine is rocking 2.4GHz/4.2GHz base/turbo clocks along with 8MB of L3 cache. This Xe GPU in this machine features 80 execution units and a maximum clock of 1.3GHz.

All of the Tiger Lake parts that we’ve seen so far features 4-core/8-thread CPU configurations. No matter which way you slice it, Tiger Lake is going to offer a significant boost in performance over Ice Lake, and will offer a significant challenge to Ryzen 4000 (with maybe the exception of multi-threaded performance).
