It looks like Intel marketing has prepared a slide for their Partner Connect platform, which they use to interact with distributors and retailers. In this slide they compare two laptops, one with a 45-Watt Core i7-10750H processor, and the other with a 35-Watt AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS. Now this might be a fair comparison until you look at the graphics cards used. The Intel notebook uses an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (Mobile) while the AMD notebook uses an RTX 2060 Max-Q. For those who don’t know those two graphics solutions are not the same.
The RTX 2060 Max-Q has a boost frequency of only 1185 MHz compared to the 1560 MHz of the RTX 2060 (Mobile). Power management is different as well, the RTX 2060 Max-Q only has a power limit of 65W compared to 90W of the RTX 2060 (Mobile). It is also worth mentioning that the AMD laptop is 22 mm thick and 14-inches, while the Intel laptop is 27 mm thick and 15.6-inches (totally different segments). In the side Intel claims 10th Gen Core processors to be “18-23 percent” faster at gaming than AMD’s Ryzen 4000 “Renoir”.
This is a very interesting slide considering Intel CEO Bob Swan told everyone not to look at benchmarks earlier this month.
