Now here are a few things to note, first of all, the TDP is only derived at the base frequency so the actual observable TDP figure will be higher when running close to the boost clocks. This is seen in the benchmarks that Intel provided for its new Tiger Lake-U parts. First up, we have benchmarks in several games where the company showcases up to 2.78x performance lead over AMD's Ryzen 7 5800U (Cezanne-U) APU however, the operating range for the Ryzen chip is 15-25W while the Core i7-1195G7 has a much higher operating range of 28-35W that gives it an advantage.
Now another key feature that Intel is promoting for its Xe graphics chip versus the Vega GPU on board the Cezanne processors is DX12 Sample Feedback. In the 3DMark Sampler Feedback test, Intel is seen gaining a 2.34x performance increase over Vega iGPUs with sampler feedback on & almost 2x gain with the feature disabled.
In content creation applications, we once again see a definitive lead for the Core i7-1195G7 in several workloads and the company is claiming a massive 8x lead in 10-bit video encoding using Intel Quick Sync Video acceleration. The chips also pack in more encode/decode options than the competition, giving them an edge. Overall, the Intel Tiger Lake-U refresh processors look great on paper but we still have to see how they perform in independent tests against AMD's Cezanne lineup.
