Intel Core i7-1165G7

The Intel Core i7-1165G7 is a power-efficient quad-core SoC for laptops and Ultrabooks based on the Tiger Lake-U generation (UP4) that was introduced in September 2020. It integrates four Willow Cove processor cores (eight threads thanks to Hyper-Threading). Each core can clock from 2.8 GHz (guaranteed base speed) to 4.7 GHz (single-core boost). All cores at once can clock at up to 4.1 GHz. At the time of announcement, the i7-1165G7 is the second-fastest model of the line-up after the Core i7-1185G7 (+100 – 200 MHz).

Another novelty is the integrated Xe graphics card based on the completely new Gen 12 architecture. It should offer a significantly higher performance compared to the older Iris Plus G7 (Ice Lake). In the i7-1185G7 it uses 96 EUs and clocks at 400 – 1300 MHz (-50 MHz versus 1185G7). The GPU and CPU can together use the 12 MB of L3 cache.

Furthermore, Tiger Lake SoCs add PCIe 4 support (four lanes), AI hardware acceleration, and the partial integration of Thunderbolt 4/USB 4 and Wi-Fi 6 in the chip.

The chip is produced in the improved 10nm+ process (called SuperFin) at Intel that should be comparable to the 7nm process at TSMC (e.g. Ryzen 4000 series).

The operating range of the UP3 series is specified at 12 to 28 Watt. Therefore, the processor is also suited for thin and light laptops.
