In a nutshell: Intel’s first-generation Lakefield processors should not due out till This fall 2020, however some have been getting their fingers on early silicon offering us with a glimpse of what sort of efficiency to anticipate. The newest leak reveals an SoC designated “Core i5-L15G7” that Geekbench rated higher than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835.

Benchmarks have leaked for one more Intel Lakefield SoC. A tweet from InstLatX64 on Saturday revealed Geekbench checks on a Core i5-L15G7. It seems to be a lower-spec model of the Core 15-L16G7 that was spotted in UserBenchmark checks again in January.

It might be a five-core x86 hybrid just like a Lakefield SoC that leaked final September. It may have one “big” Sunny Cove core on a 10nm course of, and 4 “little” Tremont cores on a 22nm Foveros base die. Foveros is an Intel know-how that permits the stacking of various chips on each other. The SoC ought to have a TDP from between 5 and 7 watts. The Geekbench report additionally indicated the the Core i5-L15G7 has 1.5MB of L2 cache and 4MB of L3 cache.

The 3DMark scores posted for the Lakefield noticed in September indicated a boosted frequency of round 3.1GHz. The Geekbench checks on the Core i5-L15G7 confirmed a base clock pace of round 1.38GHz, with the Lakefield half hitting as excessive as 2.95GHz. So it seems that it is likely to be a distinct chipset, however that is simply an informed guess.

In any occasion, the processor appears to be a bit extra highly effective than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC. In single-core checks, the Core i5-L15G7 scored 725, a rise of greater than 104 % over the Snapdragon 835. However, in multi-core workloads, Intel’s chip solely boasted a small benefit towards Qualcomm’s — 1,566 factors versus 1,533 factors, respectively — a achieve of simply over two %.

Keep in thoughts, these checks are on unreleased {hardware}. First-generation Lakefield chips should not due out till this vacation season. Although, Tom’s Hardware stories seeing the Core i5-L16G7 in a teardown of a Lenovo X1 Fold, which is due out mid-year. Even nonetheless, Intel may have already made efficiency enhancements to the i5-L15G7 in query. Keep your eye out for TechSpot’s benchmarks once we get our fingers on the brand new silicon.
