10nm Intel Ice Lake Core i5-1035G1 (Gen11 iGPU) Faster than AMD Radeon Vega 3 GPU

These days are possibly the worst days for Intel ever since the Core ix lineup was first launched back in the late 2000s. AMD’s Ryzen 3000 chips are eating the highest end i9s for breakfast while costing half as much and consuming less power. Team blue’s “best gaming CPU” claim also seems to have become redundant thanks to the massive IPC uplift of the Zen 2 CPUs. However, that doesn’t mean that they’ve given up. The company is hard at work on its 10nm Ice Lake processors that will also feature the Gen 11 iGPU designed by Raja Koduri and Co over at the Visual Technologies Group. This is the same team that will be responsible for the dedicated Xe graphics cards slated for launch next year. Today, another benchmark of the Ice Lake CPU (or rather APU) has surfaced and things aren’t looking that bad for Intel.

Yes, I know it’s just one test. But the performance deficit between the two GPUs is quite significant and it’s almost a certainty that the Ice Lake part will be faster in most 3D applications. Furthermore, you might ask why I’ve considered the lowest-end Vega GPU. Well, that’s because this is the weakest variant of the Gen11 GPU.

Core i5-1035G1, here the G1 suffix denotes the GPU model. G1 is the lowest-end, and then you’ve got the G4 and finally the G7. G1 comes with half as many EUs compared to G7 and a relatively lower frequency. G4 takes both of them up to 48 (EUs) and 1.1GHz, respectively. Finally, the Core i7-1065G7 has 64EUs with the iGPU running at 1.3GHz. All of this while keeping the power envelope below 15W. I expect the higher-end Ice Lake-U parts to compete with the AMD Vega 8 and Vega 11 parts, and quite well at that.

I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.


  1. Why does the comparison not list which AMD Vega 3 APU is used? Cause from what I gather only the budget low end AMD Athlon APUs only use Vega 3, and all Ryzens use Vega 8 or 11. I call shenanigans on Intel part lol.

    • This is Ice Lake. It’s 10nm. Comet Lake is 14nm. Intel’s 10th gen will be mixture of both, or at least that’s what they say
