Benchmark performance

Various benchmark results of Core i7-8705G and Core i5-9300H. Overall score is measured in points in 0-100 range, higher is better.

Overall score

This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.

Cinebench 15 64-bit single-core

Cinebench R15 (standing for Release 15) is a benchmark made by Maxon, authors of Cinema 4D. It was superseded by later versions of Cinebench, which use more modern variants of Cinema 4D engine. The Single Core version (sometimes called Single-Thread) only uses a single processor thread to render a room full of reflective spheres and light sources.

i5-9300H 172

Cinebench 15 64-bit multi-core

Cinebench Release 15 Multi Core (sometimes called Multi-Thread) is a variant of Cinebench R15 which uses all the processor threads.

WinRAR 4.0

WinRAR 4.0 is an outdated version of a popular file archiver. It contains an internal speed test, using 'Best' setting of RAR compression on large chunks of randomly generated data. Its results are measured in kilobytes per second.

x264 encoding pass 1

x264 benchmark uses MPEG 4 x264 compression method to encode a sample Full HD (1080p) video. Pass 1 is a faster variant that produces a constant bit rate output file. Its result is measured in frames per second, which means how many frames of source video file were encoded per second.  

i7-8705G 181
i5-9300H 194 +7.2%

x264 encoding pass 2

x264 Pass 2 is a slower variant of x264 video compression that produces a variable bit rate output file, which results in better quality since the higher bit rate is used when it is needed more. Benchmark result is still measured in frames per second.

TrueCrypt AES

TrueCrypt is a discontinued piece of software that was widely used for on-the-fly-encryption of disk partitions, now superseded by VeraCrypt. It contains several embedded performance tests, one of them being TrueCrypt AES, which measures data encryption speed using AES algorithm. Result is encryption speed in gigabytes per second.

i5-9300H 4.7 +2.2%

Passmark

Passmark CPU Mark is a widespread benchmark, consisting of 8 different tests, including integer and floating point math, extended instructions, compression, encryption and physics calculation. There is also one separate single-threaded scenario.

Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i7-8705G and Core i5-9300H are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i7-8705G

More powerful video core

Higher base clock speed (3100 vs 2400 MHz)

Advantages of Intel Core i5-9300H

0.4% better performance in benchmarks

Much newer (30 April 2019 vs 1 February 2018)

Cheaper ($861 vs $1384)

Lower power consumption (45 vs 65 watts)

HyperThreading (allows one physical CPU function as two logical ones. It increases performance, since while one logical CPU is waiting for data, the second may still do useful work)
