Yesterday, AMD launched much anticipated Ryzen PRO 5000 series mobile processors and this time only three of these APUs with Zen 3 architecture has been launched by the company.
Among them, the flagship being the AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U featuring 8 cores and 16 threads, 1.9 GHz base & 4.4 GHz boost frequencies, coming with 20MB L2+L3 cache and 15W TDP. Just after launch, these new “PRO” Ryzen APUs have already made it’s to Geekbench, thanks to Leakbench for spotting.
Yesterday, HP announced that it would partner with AMD to bring these new processors on their popular business laptops, and then we get the HP EliteBook 835 G8 laptop powered by AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U on Geekbench.
The Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U, with all its 8 Zen 3 cores, managed to score 6167 points in Geekbench multi-core tests while scoring 1314 points in single-core. This score is pretty good for an APU for a thin and light business notebook but cannot be deemed best because of the new M1 chip but much better than Intel’s offerings.
Whereas @TUM_APISAK did spot the Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U on CPU-Z, and there too, the new processor sported a handsome 585 points in single-thread and 4416 points in multi-thread.
For a thin and light business Windows notebook, this type of score is indeed a great one, and on top of that, AMD has instilled a lot of security features to make these processors business-ready. Get to know more about them here.
