Intel Core i7-1065G7 is a quad-core SoC for laptops. It is power efficient and based on Ice -Lake-U generation. The four Sunnycove processor cores come with 8 HyperThreading threads clocked at 1.3 GHz base and 3.9 GHz single-core Turbo. Two cores can reach 3.8 GHz while all four cores working together can reach 3.5 GHz using Turbo Boost.
Intel considers that Sunnycove cores are potential enough to strike 18% more IPCs (Instructions per Clocks). Moreover, this makes it comparable with that of higher clocked Whiskey Lake processors. For example, Core i5-8665U could reach a clocking of 4.8 GHz with Turbo Boost.
At the time of its announcement, the Core i7-1065G7 was the fastest 15 W Ice Lake U chipset. It is based on 10nm architecture technology. Integration with Gen 11 graphics nodes called Iris Plus Graphics is the biggest improvement for Ice-Lake CPU. i7-1065G7 integrates the biggest G7 variant with 64 CUs clocked at 300 – 1100 MHz.
Other improvements include AI hardware acceleration along with the integration of Thunderbolt and Wi-Fi 6 technologies. The chip supports integrated DDR4 memory modules with up to 3200 MHz.
Notebookcheck is now undergoing some testing on Intel’s recently launched Ice Lake U CPU. According to reports, Notebookcheck has experimented with Lenovo’s YOGA C940 which is equipped with the latest Ice Lake U processor i7 1065G7.
The result suggests that in the 3DMark run, the full-blood version of the MX 250 score is still higher. The Ice Lake U i7-1065G7 processor scored 4613 which is 16% higher than the AMD Vega 10 on the Lenovo Ideapad S540. The advantage of the independent display will be revealed soon. As of now, the MX 250 clearly outperformed the nuclear display. However, the gap between Iris Plus G7 and AMD Vega 10 is very thin!
