This article is poorly researched. The numbers used for the Ryzen 4600H Geekbench score is disingenuous at best. A quick search reveals the processor scores far higher when paired with the proper memory. With a computer configured properly, the 4600H scores over 1,100 in single threaded and between 5,500 and 6,000 in multi-threaded. Besides that, if you're going to compare processors, the Ryzen 7 4800H, which is still cheaper than an i7, would be a better comparison. When configured properly, it scores over 1,200 in single threaded and over 8,000 in multi-threaded.

Intel currently wins in single threaded, until Zen 3 launches. However, Intel is getting crushed in multi-threaded and will continue to for the foreseeable future.

Just for kicks, I ran Geekbench 5 on my Dell Inspiron 5505 with a Rzyen 7 4700U. Far cheaper than any computer running an Intel Core i7, and even cheaper than most computers running an i5. Over 1,150 in single threaded, over 6,100 in multi-threaded, and it's a 15W chip.

Not impressed with Tiger Lake.

Not only that nobody cares about Geekbench scores, just like know no one cares about UserBenchmark.

I'm not impressed either. I've an old i78750H and despite not exceeding 3.9ghz on boost (due for another clean), is giving 1076 in single core and 5738 multi core. IPC of Tiger Lake only slightly more than my generations old cpu.

i7 8750H is 6-core chip vs the Tiger Lake H chip (described in the article) which only has 4 cores.
Incidentally, I've ~1.5 year old Thinkpad with i7-8650U (it has 4 cores) and 16GB ram - it produced these results with GB 5.3:

774
Single-Core Score

2323
Multi-Core Score

The Tiger Lake chip is about twice as fast as my chip test results in single core scores and more than twice in multi core scores.

If your research was any better than this article's, you would have looked at the Intel side as well and seen the Tiger Lake results in this article aren't likely to be accurate either.

15W Tiger Lake scores about 1600 in single core, which crushes your 4700U by almost 40%. Quad-core 28W TL scores pretty much the same as your 15W 8 core 4700U in multithreaded. Congrats. It's unlikely the H version of TL is going to score worse than the U version benched below.

The TGL-H is also increasing PCIE4 lanes to 24 from 4 on the TGL-U, according to some leaks.

There are some leaks saying TGL-H will be paired with Intel's coming Xe-HPG graphics card, so perhaps the PCIE4 lanes provide some noticeable performance boost with that combo.

There is an interview with Intel VP Phelps on crn, titled "
How Intel’s Tiger Lake CPUs Are Designed For A ‘Spectrum Of Needs’", where he is quoted saying TGL will go to much higher speeds than 4.8GHz. I presume that requires the higher TGL-H TDP.

1H2021 should be interesting.
