Intel Core i5-1035G4 is a power-efficient processor based on Ice Lake architecture launched in the third quarter of 2019 alongside Core i5-1035G1 and Core i5-1035G7. 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 1.1GHz and a maximum clock speed of 3.7GHz with access to only 6MB cache memory. The Core i5-1035G4 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.
Core i5-1035G4 shows some noticeable improvements when compared to Core i5-10210U and some previous Whiskey Lake-U processors (such as Core i5-8265U and Core i5-8365U). 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 Intel Iris Plus Graphics with 48 execution units which is clocked at a base frequency of 300 MHz which can turbo boost to up to 1.05 GHz just as Core i5-1035G1. It is worth noting that Core i5-1035G4 is very similar to Core i5-1035G1 and Core i5-1035G7 models with the number of iGPU execution units being the main difference. The G1 and G7 models have 32 and 64 execution units respectively. However, among these three variant processors, the G7 model is probably the “fastest” in multithreaded workloads as well as when overclocked. All the variants have the same iGPU clock speeds. But, the G4 variant operates at 100MHz lower base frequency than the G7 model, at 100MHz higher base and turbo boost frequency than the G1 variant. Performance-wise, what the G4 model can do can be done in both the G1 and G7 models with slight differences in performance.
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 i5-1035G4 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.
