AMD’s Ryzen 4000 series has finally hit the market. Consumer laptops with the Ryzen 4800H are crushing benchmarks. The Ryzen 7 part bested the i9-9980HK in Cinebench, Passmark, and Blender to become the fastest notebook CPU on the market right now.
AMD’s Renoir Ryzen 4000 series APUs just arrived in the notebook space. Cinebench, Blender, and Passmark benchmarks show the higher end Ryzen 7 4800H zooming past the Intel i9-9980HK to become the fastest mobile CPU on the market at the moment.
This is likely to change as soon as AMD’s higher end Ryzen 9 4900 series SKUs and Intel’s Comet Lake H parts arrive on the market. But for a part that goes up against the i7-9750H, the Ryzen 7 4800H offers frankly ridiculous value for money.
The Ryzen 7 4800H scored a chart-topping 18193 in Passmark. This is nearly double the i7-9750H’s score of 11,600, and substantially higher than the i9-9980HK. In Cinebench, the Ryzen 7 4800H is 20 percent faster than the i9-9980HK.
In Blender, the results narrow somewhat, with the Ryzen 7 4800H leading by 13 seconds. What’s truly remarkable is how the AMD part pulls off this performance coup with a maximum power draw of just 54W, 40 percent lower than the i9-9980HK. AMD’s 7nm Renoir part is truly a generation apart. And, with laptops packing the Ryzen 7 4800H and RTX 2060 hitting the market at under $1200, it’s hard to see any reason at all to buy an Intel-powered laptop in the mid and upper mid-range segments, at least until Comet Lake H comes out.
