Intel Core i5-1035G1 is a power-efficient processor based on Ice Lake architecture launched in the third quarter of 2019 alongside Core i5-10210U. It has four cores capable of hyper-threading hence processes eight threads at any given time. The cores are clocked at a base frequency of 1.0GHz and a maximum clock speed of 3.6GHz with access to only 6MB cache memory. The Core i5-1035G1 is fabricated using Intel’s 10nm process node which enables lower power consumption than the previous generation of CPUs that are based on 14nm processing technology.
Compared to Core i5-10210U and some Whiskey Lake-U processors (such as Core i5-8265U and Core i5-8365U), Core i5-1035G1 shows some significant improvements. Besides being newer, the chip is based on the modern 10nm manufacturing process node that ensures improved performance per watt. Furthermore, Intel indicates that Sunny cove cores can achieve 18% more instructions per cycle (IPCs), therefore you should expect the performance of this CPU to be similar to highly clocked Whiskey lake processors like Core i5-8365U.
Also, this processor supports a newer Intel UHD Graphics with 32 execution units which is an improvement over the older UHD 620 series with 24 EUs. This GPU is clocked at a base frequency of 300 MHz which can turbo boost to up to 1.05 GHz. It is worth noting that Core i5-1035G1 is very similar to Core i5-1035G4 and Core i5-1035G7 models with the number of iGPU execution units being the main difference. The G4 and G7 models have 48 and 64 execution units respectively.
Other additional processing graphics specifications include; access to a maximum of 32 GB of physical memory, three displays supported, that is; HDMI, DP, and DVI which can support a maximum resolution at 60Hz display setting — 5120 x 3200 at 60Hz for DP and eDP and 4096 x 2304 for HDMI. Therefore, your device can smoothly handle high-resolution displays. The Core i5-1035G1 also supports faster dual DDR4-3200 memory modules as well as LPDDR4-3733 memory modules that support a maximum memory capacity of 64GB, along with a PCIe 3.0 connection.
