Battling Benchmark Leaks; Now It’s Intel’s Turn
AMD and Intel both have upcoming releases and the internet is rife with rumours about the performance we will see. The previous leak of desktop processor performance showed the Ryzen 9 3950X outperforming Intel’s Core i9-9980XE by a fair margin. Today it is benchmarks of mobile processors that have leaked out, with Intel taking the lead with their Core i7-1065G7 against a Ryzen 5 3500U.
The Passmark Overall CPU bench shows Intel’s mobile i7 hitting 10,316, compared to the Ryzen 5’s 8,042, with single threaded performance of 2,625, which is significantly higher than the 3500U’s 1,818. This is very interesting considering the Ryzen 5 3500U’s base clock is 2.1GHz base compared to Intel’s 1.3GHz and indicates Intel was better at maintaining it’s boost clock of 3.9GHz than AMD was at running continually at 3.7GHz. All of these specifications and results are unofficial, so don’t consider the race over quite yet.
