Intel Core i3-1005G1 10th Gen Mid-Range Laptop CPU

The 10th Generation Intel Core i3-1005G1 is a mid-range processor for mainstream laptops. As opposed to the most popular member of the same 10th Gen “Ice Lake” family – the upper-mid-range i5-1035G1 with four cores, 6MB cache, and a maximal clock speed of 3.6 GHz, the i3-1005G1 is a dual-core processor with 4MB cache and a maximal speed of 3.4 GHz. Both chips have a power consumption of 15 Watts and feature the same Intel UHD (G1) graphics with 32 graphics processing cores.

In comparison to its 8th Gen Intel Core i3-8130U and i3-8145U precursors, the 10th Gen Core i3-1005G1 brings a couple of noticeable improvements. The i3-1005G1 is based on a 10-nanometer production technology that enables generally cooler operation and lower power consumption than the previous 14-nanometer tech of the 8th Gen series. Another big upgrade is the aforementioned Intel UHD graphics with 32 processing cores, which replaces the old Intel UHD 620 with 24 cores. Furthermore, the new chip provides support for faster system memory (RAM), that enables a negligible performance improvement. And, the i3-1005G1 features Intel Deep Learning Boost technology for faster artificial intelligence-based computing.

Another processor related to the i3-1005G1 is the 10 Gen Intel Core i3-10110U. It supports faster RAM as the main difference in comparison to the 8th Gen i3-8130U and i3-8145U, besides higher clock speeds. Therefore, it is only a slight update over the 8th Gen parts and is closer tech-wise to the 8th Gen chips than to the 10th Gen i3-1005G1.

Intel Core i3-1005G1 CPU Benchmark

Intel Core i3-1005G1 Benchmark

Benchmark tests indicate the Intel Core i3-1005G1 brings a nice performance boost over the older 8th Gen i3 chips. It also surpasses its 8th Gen Intel Core relatives. For the real world use, it means the i3-1005G1 can handle perfectly well the usual day-to-day computing chores and tasks like web browsing, text and spreadsheet document editing, video playback, and similar. Investing in a laptop with a pricier 10th Gen Core i5 or i7 series makes sense only if you regularly do heavy computing duties like professional video editing or photo editing.

Gaming

Gaming benchmarks of the Intel UHD (G1) graphics of the Core i3-1005G1 or Core i5-1035G1 aren’t available yet. It is for sure only a basic graphics solution suitable for only light games and potentially heavier games on low detail settings. But also certainly, the new Intel UHD with its 32 graphics cores is faster than the 24-core UHD 620 of the 8th Gen i3 chips.

Note: The benchmark scores of the listed processors are averages measured across various devices with these processors. The scores and real-world performance of the Intel Core i3-1005G1 and compared CPUs may vary depending on the notebooks' other components, settings, cooling, and other factors. However, the benchmark results are good indicators of the processors' performance.

    Is the i3 1005 G1 a good processor for a college student who will be mostly web browsing, using Office and having video chats? Perhaps all at the same time?

      These aren’t generally heavy tasks, so the i3-1005G1 is sufficient and is able to deliver smooth operation. You wouldn’t benefit much from getting a faster 10th Gen i5 instead of the i3-1005G1 if you stick to these tasks and don’t do heavier stuff like video editing.

      But, I would make sure the processor is paired with at least 8GB of RAM. If you use many web browser tabs at the same time plus many opened Office docs and video chat, I would recommend at least 12GB.
