As the release of the 10nm Ice Lake CPUs from Intel draws near, the frequency of “leaked” benchmarks is gradually increasing. We spotted a Geekbench score of the same chip a while back that went viral and everyone started thinking that Intel was back on top (not quite though). Today, an SiSoft listing of the same Core i7-1065G7 processor has surfaced and although the scores are quite luke-warm, and like GB should be taken with a grain of salt. However, it does help us ascertain the specs of the top-end Ice Lake part:
These details paint the Core i7-10765G7 as a quad-core CPU with eight threads running at a base and maximum boost frequency of 1.30 and 3.9GHz, respectively. The L3 cache is capped at 8MB while L2 is listed as 2MB. We already know that this part with be paired with the top of the line Gen 11 iGPU packing 64EUs with performance eclipsing that of the Radeon RX Vega 11. The G7 suffix marks the accompanying GPU. There are three in total: G1, G4, and G7 with G1 being slightly faster than the existing UHD graphics solutions and G7 expected to be the fastest on-board solution to date. The TDP is listed as 65W which is almost certainly an error. These CPUs will draw somewhere between 25-35W, with 40-45W being the absolute ceiling with regard to the TDP. Quite efficient, don’t you think? While these Ice Lake parts are no threat to AMD’s Ryzen 3000 chips, they will further solidify Intel’s position in the notebook PC market, making it harder for AMD to establish a foothold in an already foreign space.
