In CES 2020 we saw the monstrous 8 core and 16 threaded mobile CPU by AMD and we expect a number of gaming laptops featuring the APU in the coming days.
But how does it perform in real life? To answer this, we have a leaked benchmark of this powerful APU against the desktop CPUs. If you think that the Ryzen 7 4800H performs badly against its desktop competitors then you are mistaken.
Tipster TUM_APISAK found a leaked Time Spy benchmark of the APU and we see it ripping through the Intel and it’s Ryzen brothers. If we recall the specs of this APU, it features a base clock of 2.9GHz and a boost of 4.2GHz along with 12MB cache.
We already saw the Ryzen 7 4800H scoring in the 19,000 range on 3DMark physics and now we see the APU scoring 8350 in the Time Spy CPU benchmark against the last year’s best 9th gen i7 desktop CPU who scores 8200 and this makes the APU even more interesting.
We also see that the 4800H beats the current best mid-range CPU i.e. the Ryzen 5 3600 as well as the Ryzen 5 3600X which is also based on the Zen 2 architecture but has 6 cores and 12 threads. It seems that even though we see 8 Zen 2 cores in a laptop front with timid 45W TDP, it is taking on high-end desktop CPUs as well.
It is just inches apart from the 8 core Ryzen 7 2700X who scores 8600 points and trails behind the superior Ryzen 7 3700X desktop CPU. We know 2019 was the year for AMD in the desktop CPU market and in 2020 we expect the laptop market which is heavily dominated by Intel CPUs to eventually favour team Red slowly and steadily.
