With days we are getting more and more leaks as well as benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile processors off recently. The real-world performance is expected to be impressive especially being based on the 7nm Zen 2 architecture.
Now we have a leaked benchmark of the 8 core and 8 threaded Ryzen 7 4700U that is said to be one of the best APUs by AMD but does lack the SMT support which is present in the Ryzen 7 4800U.
The leaked Geekbench benchmark shows the Ryzen 7 4700U running on a Lenovo device. The APU scores an impressive 4,910 in single-core and 21,693 in multi-core. It features a 2GHz base clock speed and a 4.2GHz boost along with 12MB of the total cache.
When compared this with the high performing 15W Core i7-1065G7 Intel Ice Lake CPU which scores about 5752 points in single-core and about 18,772 points in multi-core in Geekbench 4. This is almost neck to neck to Intel’s latest 10nm offering.
On the other hand, the 14nm based Comet Lake-U Core i7-10710U CPU scores about 5,366 in single-core and 22,182 in multi-core. We do have to keep in mind that the scores are sometimes deceiving because the scores depend on the specs and thermals of the laptop.
But apart from that, it’s great to see the new AMD APU giving Intel a hard time with it’s latest offerings against Intel’s best laptop CPUs. Although being a quad-core CPU the Core i7-1065G7 delivers excellent performance.
Also, we have to keep in mind the AMD CPU lacks SMT support which the Intel ones have but are devoid of as many cores that AMD is offering. The Ryzen 7 4800U will surely give better performance than the 4700U and will likely take on the Intel opponents.
To sum up, everything all we can say is that AMD has improved a lot with the Zen 2 architecture and in 2020 we can expect more and more powerful and thin laptops thanks to both Team Blue and AMD.
