Intel Core i7 1165G7 “Tiger Lake” Linux Performance With The Dell XPS 13 9310 Review


Listed here are our preliminary benchmarks of Intel Tiger Lake on Ubuntu Linux by way of the premium Core i7 1165G7 processor. This additionally seems to be the primary public benchmarks of the brand new Dell XPS 13 9310 laptop computer that just-launched because the refreshed XPS pocket book for Tiger Lake and with Intel EVO certification.

The Core i7 1165G7 Tiger Lake processor being examined at the moment is a 10nm SuperFin quad-core processor with Hyper Threading and has a 4.7GHz turbo frequency and 12MB of L3 cache. Making Tiger Lake fairly attention-grabbing are the Iris Xe Graphics (Gen12) discovered with this cell processor.

In comparison with the previous-Generation Core i7 1065G7 Ice Lake processor, the Core i7 1165G7 Tiger Lake 10nm SuperFin processor has a a lot larger turbo frequency (4.7GHz vs. 3.9GHz), a 12MB cache relatively than 8MB, LPDDR4x-4267 help relatively than LPDDR4-3733 (although each do additionally help DDR4-3200), Thunderbolt 4, and PCIe Gen Four because the distinguished benefits.

The Dell XPS 13 9310 is the primary to market with Tiger Lake that was introduced on the finish of September and now starting to ship to prospects. The Dell XPS 13 9310 Developer Version as examined was configured with the Core i7 1176G7 Tiger Lake processor with Xe Graphics, 2 x 8GB LPDDR4-4267 reminiscence, 1920 x 1200 show, Intel WiFi 6 AX201, and Kioxia KBG40ZNS256G NVMe solid-state storage. The Dell XPS 13 9310 Developer Version as configured at present retails for $1349 USD.

Tiger Lake on Linux does work however relying upon your distribution’s bundle variations, it’s possible you’ll must resort to manually upgrading. As with most new {hardware} launches, I like to recommend working the newest steady kernel and within the case of graphics help to even be utilizing the newest kernel. On this case Linux 5.9 and Mesa 20.3-devel is the place I’ve primarily been testing Tiger Lake thus far whereas going again to Linux 5.6~5.Eight needs to be superb together with Mesa 20.2 and probably 20.1, however generally the newer packages are higher.

For at the moment’s benchmarking, the Dell XPS 13 9310 and the opposite laptops beneath take a look at have been all working Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS with Linux 5.9 and Mesa 20.3-devel. This mixture has been figuring out dependable with the Dell XPS 13 9310 within the brief time of testing thus far whereas additional Linux kernel model comparisons and different distribution checks will probably be coming within the days/weeks forward.

The laptops / cell processors examined for this comparability included:

Core i7 8565U – The 2019 Dell XPS 13 9380 with Core i7 8565U, the eighth Gen 4-core / 8-core Whiskey Lake processor that has UHD Graphics and 4.6GHz max turbo frequency. The laptop computer beneath take a look at was outfitted with 2 x 8GB of RAM, UHD 620 Graphics, 256GB SK Hynix PC401 NVMe SSD, and 1080p show.

Core i7 1065G7 – The 2020 Dell XPS 13 7390 with Core i7 1065G7 as final 12 months’s XPS Ice Lake mannequin. The laptop computer was outfitted with 2 x 8GB RAM, Iris Plus G7 graphics, 1920 x 1200 show, and Toshiba KBG40ZPZ512G 512GB NVMe solid-state drive.

Core i7 1165G7 – The Dell XPS 13 9310 Developer Version Tiger Lake laptop computer being centered on for at the moment’s article.

Ryzen 5 4500U – The Lenovo Flex 5 (81X20005US) that not less than when instances in inventory has been discovered as little as $599 USD (what I paid for the laptop computer the truth is) with the Ryzen 5 4500U, 2 x 8GB DDR4-3200 reminiscence, Vega graphics, 256GB NVMe solid-state drive, and 1080p show. The Ryzen 5 4500U provides six cores, 2.3GHz base clock. 4.0GHz enhance clock, 6 graphics cores for the Radeon (Vega) graphics, and 15 Watt default TDP.

Ryzen 7 4700U – Lenovo IdeaPad with the Ryzen 7 4700U with Vega graphics and having 2 x 8GB of RAM, 1080p show, 512GB NVMe SSD, and 1080p show for round $850 USD. The Ryzen 7 4700U enjoys Eight CPU cores, 2.0GHz base clock, 4.1GHz enhance clock, 8MB L3 cache, 7 graphics cores for the Radeon (Vega) graphics, and a 15 Watt TDP general.

Sadly I haven’t got any Ryzen 4800 sequence laptop computer for comparability with the laptop computer choice being restricted attributable to usually having to purchase the laptops beneath take a look at for offering Linux protection and benchmarks.

Every of those laptops have been examined with Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS with all steady updates and in addition upgrading to the Linux 5.9 kernel for finest help together with making use of Mesa 20.3-devel by way of the Oibaf PPA for the very newest {hardware} help and graphics.

By way of the Phoronix Check Suite dozens of various benchmarks have been run on these laptops with Ubuntu Linux. The CPU core temperature, CPU frequency, and CPU energy consumption have been all monitored throughout testing on a per-test foundation as properly. Sadly AMD’s new amd_energy Linux driver for CPU bundle energy consumption would not at present work for Renoir on Linux 5.9 thus it is simply the bundle energy consumption on the Intel laptops reported by way of their RAPL interfaces however a battery take a look at comparability will probably be coming quickly.

Further Core i7 1165G7 Tiger Lake Linux benchmarks wanting extra carefully on the Xe Graphics, Linux gaming, compiler comparisons, and far more will probably be printed within the weeks forward with this Dell XPS Tiger Lake laptop computer.
