Ryzen 7 5700U vs Core i7-1165G7 benchmarks
In our benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 5700U beats the Core i7-1165G7 in overall performance. Despite this, the Core i7-1165G7 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the Ryzen 7 5700U has significantly more cores with 8 cores compared to the Core i7-1165G7 that has 4 cores. It also has more threads than the Core i7-1165G7. Our comparison shows that the Core i7-1165G7 has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Ryzen 7 5700U. Also, the Core i7-1165G7 has a slightly higher turbo speed. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. Indeed, the Ryzen 7 5700U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
