The Ryzen 9 5980HS, AMD’s Cezanne flagship mobile CPU was recently spotted in leaked benchmarks on the ASUS ROG Flog X13 laptop. The mobile Ryzen 5000 part delivered an impressive 8224 in Geekbench 5.3. This is result is particularly interesting since the 5980HS isn’t even a top-of-the stack part. The Ryzen 9 5980HX, configured with a higher TDP takes that particular honor.
While GPU benchmarks weren’t available, the Ryzen 9 5980HS appeared to feature an integrated Vega 8 GPU, running at a remarkable 2100 MHz. Thanks to the substantially boost to clock speed – we’re talking almost twice as fast as the stock desktop Vega 8, and more than double that of many mobile configs, the Vega 8 could deliver competition to entry-level discrete parts.
In terms of CPU capabilities, the Ryzen 9 5980HS utilizes the Zen 3 architecture, which means substantially higher IPC. The boost clock on the 5980HS in question seems to run in the 4.5 GHz range, which isn’t far off from desktop parts. The 7nm architecture really comes into its own here, enabling AMD to deliver chip that handily bests console CPUs (and, indeed previous-gen Ryzen champs like the Ryzen 7 3700X), while consuming a fraction of the power.
We should soon be seeing the Ryzen 9 5980HS in laptops. We’re particularly interested in seeing how it holds up, when paired with mobile Big Navi GPUs.
