It won’t be long before AMD’s Ryzen 4000 based laptops hit the market. The first wave of machines packing the Renoir chips is expected to launch next month. Over the course of the year, AMD has promised nearly 100 machines powered by the Ryzen 4000 mobile APUs. That’s quite impressive considering that just a couple of years back, AMD had zero laptop processors worth checking out. We’ve been consistently covering leaks regarding the Renoir parts over the past few months. You can check out our previous coverage here:
In this post, we’ll have a look at a leaked Ryzen 5 4500U benchmark and compare it against its Intel rival, the Core i5-1035G1:
Intel still has a slight advantage in the single-core performance thanks to Sunny Cove’s high IPC, but the Ryzen 5 4500U manages to come out on top in the multi-threaded test. It’s ahead by around 15% in the latter while the single-core deficit is that of a mere 5%.
One interesting aspect of the notebook market is that both Intel and AMD are mostly on par in terms of graphics performance. Traditionally AMD used to lead on account of its Radeon graphics division, but with the introduction of Gen11, the playing field has leveled. You could go as far as to say that Intel has a slight advantage in the high-end. Secondly, this is the only time you’ll see the Intel part packing more L3 cache than its AMD competitor. The AMD Ryzen 3000 desktop parts pack a large L3 cache to make up for the latency penalty induced by the Infinity Fabric, but Intel chips have no such requirement. The Renoir mobile chips don’t need the same amount of L3 cache as (like Intel) they have a monolithic design.
