I’d make a title “AMD once again fails to make a gaming CPU”
Which would be misleading, because in the 4 games tested, the 26 W Ryzen outperformed better than the other 25W packages, with the exception being the Core i7-1065G7 + MX250 combination in GTAV.
All I see is intel 14nm 10xxx beats AMD 7nm
Whatever one wishes to think about AMD or Intel’s products, at the end of the day, specifications and performance figures speak for themselves.
Core i7-1065G7 vs Ryzen 5 4500U
Cores: 4 vs 6
Threads: 8 vs 6
Base clock: 1.3 vs 2.3 GHz
Boost: 3.5/3.9 vs 4.0 GHz
L3 cache: 6 MB vs 11 MB
In a similar power configurations, one can see how this pans out:
Intel’s 10 nm process node may well be superior to TSMC’s N7, but the end product (I.e. the 1065G7) is clearly not better than the opposition (the 4500U) in these tests, bar the single Acrobat test at 25/26W – it could, of course, be better in other tests and configurations, but the above should be sufficient evidence to anyone that there is simply nothing wrong the 4500U and that the article’s title is perfectly fair.
