Intel 10nm Ice Lake Benchmarks on the Core i7-1065G7 Processor


HandBrake, Corona, POV-Ray, Geekbench

HandBrake v1.2.2 – link

HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows. It is popular today as it allows you to transcode multiple input video formats to h.264 output format and is highly multithreaded. We used Big Buck Bunny as our input file, which has become one of the world standards for video benchmarks.

For our benchmark scenario we used a standard 2D 4K (3840×2160) 60 FPS clip in the MP4 format and used Handbrake version 1.2.2

Corona Benchmark: link

Corona Renderer 1.3 allows you to test and compare the performance of your CPU using this free benchmark application, which is built upon Corona Renderer 1.3. Legit Reviews charted the time it took to complete the Corona Renderer benchmark.

POV-Ray 3.80 Beta: link

The Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer, or POV-Ray, is a ray tracing program which generates images from a text-based scene description, and is available for a variety of computer platforms. We used the recommend scene, benchmark.pov, for CPU benchmarking, as it uses many of POV-Ray’s internal features.

Geekbench 4.4.1 Pro: link

Geekbench is a cross-platform processor benchmark, with a scoring system that separates single-core and multi-core performance, and workloads that simulate real-world scenarios. These tests are complex, avoiding simple problems with straightforward memory-access patterns, and push the limits of your system.

Benchmark Thoughts:

One thing we noticed is that the Intel Core i7-1065G7 scores about the same as an Intel Core i7-7700K desktop processor in many of the CPU benchmarks. For example the Intel Core i7-7700K averages about 5,691 Single-Core and 18,858 Multi-Core. We are basically matching those numbers from a 91W desktop part from 2017 on a 25W mobile part here in 2019. That is pretty amazing when you think about it and should help our desktop readers understand how powerful this mobile processor is!
