    Phoronix: Intel Core i7 1165G7 "Tiger Lake" Linux Performance With The Dell XPS 13 9310

    Here are our initial benchmarks of Intel Tiger Lake on Ubuntu Linux via the premium Core i7 1165G7 processor. This also appears to be the first public benchmarks of the new Dell XPS 13 9310 laptop that just-launched as the refreshed XPS notebook for Tiger Lake and with Intel EVO certification.

    We just ordered a bunch of Tuxedo Pulse 14 Laptops with Ryzen 4800H - I assume they will run cycles around what's shown here :/

      Sooo, the Tiger Lake laptop costs more than double AND is outperformed by the Ryzen 5 laptop. Way to go Intel, you're doing it right 👌

        Dell XPS is the way better laptop than these Lenovo. 250/300 vs 500 nits ?? Really? etc,

          For the price difference i would buy an 4800H that will sodomize this dell laptop on the CPU side with a nice GTX1660 that will sodomize this laptop GPU wise and just buy a nice ultra-wide curved LG Monitor for when i need a real good screen at home, some nice headphones, a badass wireless mouse and since i'm still 100 bucks short probably an external drive would be nice as well.

          If for you 200 nits is worth 600$ + massively slower CPU/GPU + then by all means go get it while its hot but i kinda love my money too much to waste it

            Power management for Tiger Lake seems to be utterly broken. It increases performance over Ice Lake seemingly at the cost of a much higher power consumption.

            Single threaded performance regressions look outrageous. The 1065G7 boost up to 3.9GHz, the 1165G7 boosts up to 4.7GHz and loses? Something is really wrong either with the CPU, BIOS or Linux.

            Overall it looks like the 10nm+ node for Intel is still broken not to mention that the final products based on Tiger Lake are still ridiculously expensive.

            Please add tests which show power consumption for the task. They will actually show how efficient the node and CPU arch are. Right now it's absolutely not clear.

              Thanks for buying a 9310 and testing! I have a very similarly configured 9300, and even danced around the idea of upgrading to a 9310.

              Does the 9310 suffer from very high battery drain in s2idle? My 9300 originally consumed around 0.5% per hour in s2idle, but I believe a BIOS update totally messed things up. The machine uses around 2.6% per hour in s2idle. s3 (deep) is far better, but I hate the "long" wakeup times.

              Any experience with this on the 9310? I'm also on Ubuntu 20.04 + Kernel 5.9.

              Thanks again for your testing!

                Maybe run a few tests on windows 10 as well. I agree with birdie, there's something fishy here. The TGL even has faster RAM than the others, it should do much better, IF the intel marketing material is to be believed.

                  Windows vs. Linux tests will be coming as time allows in the coming week or two.

                    Doesn't look to good for Intel on the basis of these benchmarks with their top tier offering being soundly beaten by AMD's second from bottom Renoir (4500U) and those look but you can't touch prelaunch laptops they shipped out are now looking awfully fishy the real product is now out in the wild. What's a shame is AMD don't seem able enough at the moment to get their Renoirs out in sufficient quantity and in premium screened laptops to really kick Intel where it hurts.

                    Come on AMD where are the 4800Us ?
