11th Gen Intel Core (Tiger Lake) : Performance

Intel is targeting their top-of-the-line Tiger Lake processor – the Core i7-1185G7 – against the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U.

We have to point out that this may not be quite a fair comparison since the Ryzen 7 4800U is an 8-core, 16-thread processor with an 8-core Vega GPU and a 15W TDP.

But that’s what Intel is showcasing – a face-off between their Core i7-1185G7 and the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U.
