Which is exactly why we ought to wait for independent reviews so that we can a) be aware of any configuration differences, and b) try to account for them when comparing.

Notebookcheck and CPU-Monkey are independent enough.

Both are with configurable up and down TDPs of 25-watt and 12-watt.

i7-1065G7 is a bad CPU. Period.

But why? Which part is so bad?

Features are quite even, IMO slightly better on the Intel side.
Performance... well, let's wait for the actual benchmarks.
Zen+ mobile APUs were also great on paper.

If you're amazed by the fact that AMD runs 2x more cores on 15W, don't be.
The real question is how they perform over longer period and how much energy they pull on the way.
All Renoir -U have 15W TDP - even the 4C/4T 4300U.

And of course by the time Renoir becomes available in mainstream products, it'll compete against 6 or 8-core Tiger Lake, not 4-core Ice Lake. :)

...except that we can't actually read NBC's review, so we can't know the details of the configuration of the device. Hence the need to wait and see, right? I don't doubt their findings whatsoever, it's just that the numbers alone don't tell the whole story.

As for the i7-1065G7 being bad? Nah. It has the best iGPU Intel has ever made - which is genuinely quite good - and perfectly adequate performance overall. It definitely shows the weaknesses of the 10nm node - I would expect higher clocks overall if that node wasn't still seriously flawed - but despite this it manages to be perfectly decent. And I personally value the boost in iGPU performance far more than any boost in CPU performance at 15-25W. Still, I wouldn't buy a laptop with one, mainly because I think Renoir will be better overall (particularly in iGPU performance), but if I had the choice between ICL and CML I would definitely go for the former.

It competes with Ryzen 5 2500U, Ryzen 7 2700U, Ryzen 5 3500U and Ryzen 7 3700U. Or the previous generation AMD performance.

Based on AMD's own numbers (the ones that you're promoting so much), i7-1065G7 should be more than capable competitor for 6-core Renoir U.
In Blender, which is probably the best case scenario for Ryzen, 4800U is just 40% faster.

But of course this year Intel launches Tiger Lake, which is a different beast. Most likely 20%+ faster cores and improved iGPU.
So even if Tiger Lake stops at 4 cores, it won't be far behind the best from AMD.

I'm not sure why you're so inclined to persuade us that Intel is so far behind. Roughly equivalent node, same scientific level, similar know-how and workforce quality. There's no reason why one company would make a product much better than the other.
There will be some nuances and some implications of architectures, but we should expect both companies to turn 15W into similar performance.

The feature set of the 500 series platform look very promising. But I'll stick to my 9700k for another year or two. Hopefully both AMD and Intel would be on 7nm by then.

AMD will 95% be on TSMC's N5 by then, for Intel we don't know - they can stay on their N14.

There is no N14 either. Seriously, are you unable to learn this or what? :eek:

Well, so I thought: next desktop upgrade with DDR5 and all that.

But frankly, this would be fine as well. WiFi 6, USB 4, PCIe4, 2.5GbE, Xe GPU with all it's goodies.
10nm desktops would only add performance or lower power draw - something I can live without shopping for a mid-range i5.

Everyone knows that these are only marketing terms which have nothing to do with the reality.

Give me a single transistors dimension on N10 and N14 that is equal to ten (or fourteen, for that matter) nanometres in length, width or depth!

Why are you making up your own node names?

TSMC doesn't use "nm" in its production processes designation.

Because 10 nm doesn't correspond to the reality, to the set rules, and because it's easier to standardise across the board using something like N in front.
TSMC has 10FF.

... so will you also start naming AMD's CPUs and APUs i3, i5, i7 and i9? Because that's what you're doing here, applying the marketing names of one company to another's products. Please stop, you're only sowing confusion. These nodes aren't directly comparable, so naming them by their marketing names (Intel 14nm (+/++/+++/++++/+++++/+++++++++++++), TSMC N7/N7P, etc) makes it easier to understand what you are talking about, not the other way around.

It's true that Intel's processes are more dense but to use nm in the name is misleading as well.

Everyone calls it 7 nm, I will call it "N10" or "10 nm".

What do you mean "These nodes aren't directly comparable"?

yeah except Ryzen has more than 2x the performance/watt. So yes, Ryzen will be SIGNIFICANTLY better than Intel in laptops since perf/watt matters. It doesn't matter in desktops, that's why Intel CPUs pull ahead because they are drawing much more power. Performance matters in desktops, Effficiency (perf/watt) matters in laptops.

Why would "10nm" correspond to anything real? And if yes, to which property of node? You've shown a few.

N6 is a marketing name, like Ford Focus. So you're now calling a competing car VW Focus, because you like that naming better and the car absolutely doesn't look like a piece of clothing.
And your wicked idea of "standarizing" is that we should call all compact cars "Focus", because you can't handle multiple naming schemes.

What do you mean "These nodes aren't directly comparable"?
Not directly comparable means that one fab's 7nm/M7/whatever they choose to call it node might be similar to one fab's 10nm/N10/whatever node, etc.

As for everyone calling it 7nm: well, no, TSMC doesn't, at least not in their node names.

And you fail to respond to the main point here, which is reiterated and exemplified beautifully by @notb above. Why do you insist on using one brand's marketing names on other brands' products?

Intel was having issues implementing PCIe 4.0 in their next gen chips, that's what I meant. PCIe 4.0 as a whole is nice, but Intel reportedly was going to disable the feature because there were too many issues with the chipsets.

Clearly you have never heard of an i7-9750H or i9-9980HK or the upcoming 10th gen Comet Lake? Pretty sad.

You guys are just talking past each other. @notb is talking about Rocket Lake-S, which is what this thread is (supposedly) about, and which is a desktop platform like all other -S Intel Platforms. It'll likely be closely related to some form of Rocket Lake-H for high-end mobile, but again, not the subject of this thread. The i7-9750H and i9-9980HK are Coffee Lake-H, not Rocket Lake-S. If we are going to compare across generations or platforms let's at least ensure that we're all talking about the same things, eh?

Can someone explain all those Intel Lakes? Because I have lost count and have no idea what is what. We have like 1500 different Lakes, but every one seems exactly the same.

Can someone explain all those Intel Lakes? Because I have lost count and have no idea what is what. We have like 1500 different Lakes, but every one seems exactly the same.
That's because the majority of them are; just variations of the Skylake arch on variations of the 14nm node, with each one clocking slightly higher than the previous, some adding cores, and some adding hardware mitigations to security issues. Ice Lake (currently on the market, 10nm, mobile), Tiger Lake (upcoming, 10nm, mobile) and Rocket Lake (upcoming, ??nm desktop, possibly) are based on an updated architecture with better IPC. Though Rocket Lake is entirely unknown beyond vague rumors like this one.

I wouldn't put too much faith in any of the specifics of "Rocket Lake" yet. Whenever rumors are pointing in all kinds of directions it's usually a sign of people just speculating.

I find it a little odd that there is so little substantive about Rocket Lake, if it's supposed to be launched in a few months. I haven't found any references to it in the drivers either, while the Tiger Lake support was just updated a few days ago.

I've been with Intel since Sandy Bridge and i couldn't tell you that. I've lost count and the differences between them seem so minute, it's not worth keep an eye on them. I imagine it's a bit different on the mobile front, but that interests me even less.
