The Intel Core i5-11300H and Core i5-1135G7 are two “blue” CPUs that are equally priced at $309.00 (bulk price for 1000 units). Both CPUs are based on the Tiger Lake tech but the H variant belongs to the H35 series while the Core i5-1135G7 is a UP3 unit.
At least on paper, both siblings are close – they have equal core and thread count – 4 cores and 8 threads, the cache size is the same (8MB), and in terms of memory supported frequencies they are on the same boat – DDR4-3200, LPDDR4x-4267.
However, the Core i5-11300H has a bigger TDP and as an H CPU, it may have more tricks under its sleeve. So, let’s check the performance of these two rivals.
You can take a look at our Top Laptop CPU Ranking, where we showcase the best and the newest laptop processors.
You can find more information about both CPUs here: Intel Core i5-11300H / Intel Core i5-1135G7
|Core i5-11300H||Core i5-1135G7|
|Architecture||Tiger Lake H35||Tiger Lake UP3|
|Cores / Threads||4/8||4/8|
|8Clock Speeds – Base/Boost||3.10GHz – 4.40GHz||2.40GHz – 4.00GHz|
|TDP||up to 35W||up to 28W|
|Integrated GPU||Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 (80EU)||Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 (80EU)|
Expectedly, the Core i5-11300H is faster compared to the Core i5-1135G7 in 3D Rendering. It looks like in these situations the bigger TDP has the final word.
Both CPUs are equipped with the same iGPU – Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 (80EU). Now, in this scenario, the iGPU performance can vary from configuration to configuration and it depends on the memory clock, the single-channel RAM has a negative impact on the iGPU results while the dual-channel memory definitely helps in every situation. So, at least for now, we have results from a prototype laptop and we prefer to test the final version of the product before making any conclusions when it comes to the iGPU “department”.
So, both processors are equally priced ($309.00) and they have the same core count, cache size, and memory-supported frequencies. At least for now the Core i5-11300H has the upper hand when it comes to pure CPU computational performance. On the other hand, the H CPU dissipates more heat and if you need a thinner laptop maybe the Core i5-1135G7 is a better solution.
