Hello everyone. I currently have my framework laptop with an i7-1165G mainboard and recently bought the i7-1280P mainboard. Is anyone interested in any benchmarks or testing between these two?
When the board comes in, I plan on doing the usual tests like Cinebench. If anyone is curious about any other tests, I am open to trying them and reporting back the results.
I would be interested in a battery life test. The tests I read/watched had conflicting results.
I would be interested in a CPU benchmark https://browser.geekbench.com/. I’m not sure if i should upgrade…
By “usual tests” I hope you mean some day-to-day tasks like 7-zip compression/decompression? (if you normally prefer using a different compression/decompression program then you can use the portable version instead)
Just one thing I want to point out is that, perhaps because Cinebench cares very little about CPU cache, it tends to overly-emphesize the benefit of the E-cores compared to other embarresingly-parralell workloads (e.g. 7zip, blender, converting a bunch of audio files to another format in bulk, etc).
…on the subject of audio files, I’m a weirdo that likes using WavPack set to its absolute maximum compression, but that’s such an uncommon use-case that I question if it’d be useful to anyone despite WavPack being the only compressed lossless format I know of that supports 32bit floating point.
Lastly, not to toot my own horn, but think you could run the Dolphin 5.0 emulator benchmark? It’s a bit outdated by now but I’ve not really been able to figure out a great solution on how to update it to a newer version that’d be readily available yet still cross-platform (in particular, flathub.org seems to remove the data for older versions even if you keep a copy of the old .flatpakref file)…unless someone knows how to turn an existing copy previously installed via a flatpak into an appimage or the like?
So have you run a benchmark, just upgraded going i7- 1165g7 to the 1280P. Sure as heel loads up the computer faster. But let’s see what your benchmark says.
